"Carrickfergus" as written by and Ronan Hardiman....
I wish I was in Carrickfergus
Where the castle looks out to sea
I would swim over the deepest ocean
For my love to be with me

But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
Nor have I the wings for to fly
I wish I had a handsome boatman
To ferry me over, my love and I

I wish I was in the land of Erin
Where the mountains meet the sea
Where flowers blossom as I do remember
Where my true love came to me

But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
Nor have I the wings for to fly
Ah to be back now in Carrickfergus
To be together, my love and I
To be together, my love and I

I wish I was in Carrickfergus
I wish I was in Carrickfergus
I wish I was back home again
