Carrickfergus
not certain, adaptation Van Morrison


I wish I was in Carrickfergus
Only for nights in Ballygrand
I would swim over the deepest ocean
The deepest ocean for my love to find

But the sea is wide and I can't swim over
Neither have I wings to fly
If I could find me a handsome boatsman
To ferry me over to my love and die

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

But I'll spend my days in endless roaming
Soft is the grass my bed is free
Ah, to be back now in Carrickfergus
On that long road down to the sea

toegevoegd door Van Morrison:

And in Kilkenny  it is reported
On marble stones  as black as any ink
With gold and silver  I would support her
But I'll sing no more  till I get a drink

I'm drunk today and I'm rarely sober
A handsome rover from town to town
Oh, but I'm sick  and, my days are numbered
So come all ye young men  and lay me down
