    Lyrics

    I wish I was in Carrickfergus
    Only for nights in Ballygrand
    I would swim over the deepest ocean
    Only to be there, to be by your side

    But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
    And neither have I the wings to fly
    I wish I had a handsome boatman
    To ferry me over to my love and die

    My childhood days bring back sad reflections
    Of happy days spent so long ago
    My boyhood friends and my own relations
    Have all passed on now like a melting of snow

    So I'll spend my days in endless roaming
    Soft is the grass, and my bed is free
    Ah, to be home now in Carrickfergus
    On that 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 'til I get a drink

    And I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober
    A handsome rover from town to town
    Oh but I'm sick now and my days are numbered
    Come all me young men and lay me down

    I wish I had you in Carrickfergus
    Only for nights in Ballygrand
    I would swim over the deepest ocean
    Only to be there, to be by your side
