Carrickfergus

歌詞

I wished i had you in carrickfergus

 

Only for nights in ballygrand

 

I would swim over the deepest ocean

 

The deepest ocean to be by your side

 

But the sea is wide and i can't swim over

 

Neither have i wings to fly

 

I wish i could find me a handy boatman

 

To ferry me over to my love and die

 

My childhood days bring back sad reflections

 

Of happy days so long ago

 

My boyhood friends and my own relations

 

Have all passed on like the melting snow

 

So i'll spend my days in endless roving

 

Soft is the grass and my bed is free

Oh to be home now in carrickfergus

 

On the long road down to the salty sea

 

And in kilkenny it is reported

On marble stone there as black as ink

 

With gold and silver i did support her

 

But i'll sing no more now till i get a drink

 

I'm drunk today and i'm rarely sober

 

A handsome rover from town to town

 

Oh but i am sick now and my days are numbered

 

Come all ye young men and lay me down

 

Come all ye young men and lay me down
