Carrickfergus - lyrics

playlist Playlist
I wish I was in Carrickfergus only for nights in Ballygrand
I would swim over the deepest ocean, the deepest ocean for my love to find
But the sea it is wide and I cannot swim over and neither have I the wings to fly
I wish I find me a handsome boatsman to ferry me over to my love and I
My childhood days bring back sad reflections of happy times spent so long ago
My boyhood friends and my own relations have all passed on now like melting snow
But I'll spend my days in endless roaming and soft is the grass and my bed is free
Ah, to be back now in Carrickfergus on that long road down by the sea
And in Kilkenny it is reported on marble stones as black as ink
With gold and silver I would support her but I'll sing no more now til I get a drink
Yes I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober a handsome rover from town to town
Ah, but I'm sick now and my days are numbered so come all ye young men and lay me down
