Bryan Ferry
(Traditional Arranged by Bryan Ferry)
Intro: D  Dsus4 D  D/A D  Dsus4 D               
          A             D    Dsus4 D
I wish I was in Carrickfergus
      G   A     G   G/B   D    Dsus4 D
Only for nights in Ballygrand
I would swim over the deepest ocean
Just to see my love before I die

(NC)            D  Bm              A      Asus4 A
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
            D   Bm            A  Asus4 A
Nor have I wings so I could fly
                                D      Dsus4 D
I wish I could meet a handsome boatman
          G A     G  G/B     D    Dsus4 D
To carry me over my love and I

In Kilkenny it is reported
On marble stones as black as ink
With gold and silver I did support her
But I'll sing no more till I've had a drink

Well I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober
A handsome rover from town to town
But I am sick now my days are numbered
Come all you young men and lay me down
Come all you young men and lay me down

D Dsus4 ...
