The Dubliners - Carrickfergus Chords

A0        Bm1  E2             A3    F#m4
0I wish I was,   in Carrickfergus
         Bm5     E6         A7
1Only for nights, in Ballygrant
             Bm8  E9            A10    F#m11
2I would swim over the deepest ocean
            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
             A48 F#m49       D50      E51
19Soft is the grass and my bed is free
         Bm52      E53           A54    F#m55
20Oh to be home now in Carrickfergus
            Bm56       E57             A58
21On the long road down to the salty sea
           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
