Do bh bean uasal seal d lua liom, 's chuir s suas dom fral ghar; Do ghabhas lastuas di sna bailte mra Mar go dtug s svae ['sway'] li os comhair an tsaoil. Ach d bhfaighinnse a ceann sid faoi irs an teampaill, Do bheinn gan amhras ar m'bhar fin; Ach anois tim tinn lag 's gan fil ar leigheas agam. Is go mbeidh mo mhuintir ag gol im' dhidh. G Am D G Em I wish I was in Carrickfergus, Am D C G Gsus4 only for nights in Ballygran Am D G Em I would swim over the deepest ocean, Am D C G Gsus4 only for nights in Ballygran G Em C D But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over Em G C D And neither have I the wings to fly Am D G I wish I could find me a handsome boatsman Am D C G To ferry me over, to my love and die. G Am D G Em But in Kilkenny, it is reported, Am D C G Gsus4 On marble stones there as black as ink Am D G Em With gold and silver I would support her, Am D G C G But I'll sing no more now, 'till I get a drink. G Em C D For I'm drunk today, and I'm seldom sober, Em G C D A handsome rover from town to town Am D G Gsus4 Ah, but I'm sick now, my days are numbered, Am D C G Come all you young men and lay me down.
