First heard this sung in the TV series "BOARDWALK Boulevard" I wish I was in Carrickfergus Only for nights in Ballygrand I would swim over the deepest ocean Only for nights in Ballygrand But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over And neither have I the wings to fly If I could find me a handy boatman To ferry me over my love and I My childhood days bring back sad reflections Of happy time there spent so long ago My boyhood friends and my own relations Have all passed on now like the melting snow So I?ll spend my days in this endless roving Soft is the grass and shore my bed is free But to be home now in Carrickfergus On the long road down to the salty sea LONG instrumental, but very nice ;-) And in Kilkenny it is reported On marble stone there as black as ink With gold and silver I would support her But I'll sing no more now till I get a drink For I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober The handsome rover from town to town Ah but I am sick now my days are numbered Come all me young men and lay me down The town is the subject of the classic Irish folk song "Carrickfergus", a 19th century translation of an Irish-language song (Do Bhí Bean Uasal) from Munster, which begins with the words, "I wish I was in Carrickfergus."

"Song of a Child" is copyrighted by me, chorus and primary melody (and harmony) 2006; new verses 2012 (today). It is dedicated to the 20 children and 6 adults who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in CT last Friday. It is also dedicated to the 23 children who were knived by an intruder in their elementary school last Friday in China. Two of them died. It is dedicated to every child who needs our help to stay alive and live a full life in this world. It is acapella, because I had trouble with the recording and cyber space.

A very talented singer/song writer by the name of Hoyt Axton wrote this song, Jealous Man. Seeing how SingSnap does not have this backing track, and as much as i enjoy the Late Mr. Axton's music I decided to sing this one. On a side note, I haven't picked up a guitar in a very long time, so my playing abilities have diminished quite a bit. Hope you Enjoy it.
