0I wish I was,   in Carrickfergus
Bm5 E6 A7 1Only for nights, in Ballygrant

Bm12 E13 A14 3The deepest ocean to be by your side

E15 A16 F#m17 E18 6But the sea is wide and I can't swim over
A19 F#m20 D21 E22 7And nor have I the wings to fly
Bm23 E24 A25 F#m26 8If I could find me a handy boatman
Bm27 E28 A29 9To ferry me over to my love and die

Bm30 E31 A32 F#m33 12My childhood days bring back sad reflections
Bm34 E35 A36 13Of happy time spend so long ago.
Bm37 E38 A39 F#m40 14My boyhood friends and my own relations
Bm41 E42 A43 15Have all passed on like the melting snow

E44 A45 F#m46 E47 18I'll spend my days in endless roving

Bm59 E60 A61 F#m62 24And in Kilkenny it is reported
Bm63 E64 A65 25On marble stone as black as ink
Bm66 E67 A68 F#m69 26With gold and silver I did support her
Bm70 E71 A72 27But I'll sing no more now till I get a drink

E73 A74 F#m75 E76 30For I'm drunk today and I'm rarely sober
A77 F#m78 D79 E80 A81 handsome rover from town to town Bm82 E83 A84 F#m85 31Oh but I am sick now and my days are numbered
Bm86 E87 A88 32so come on ye young men and lay me down
