Cathie Ryan – Carrick-A-Rede lyrics




[Verse 1]
I’ll walk the miles from Ballintoy
No shining moon to light my way
Across the fields of Larrybane
And the rope bridge where my love waits

[Verse 2]
The fishermen lie in their beds
The salmon spawn in Moyle’s blue sea
And you lie there upon the grass
Waiting for me on Carrick-a-rede

[Chorus]
One step and two, hold tight, let go
Twenty-and-four, hold tight, let go____
I’m nearly there, let go, let go

[Verse 3]
I will find you where you lie
And steal in soft under your coat
We will tell our stories, love
And sing our songs out, every note

[Chorus]
One step and two, hold tight, let go
Twenty-and-four, hold tight, let go____
I’m nearly there, let go, let go

[Verse 4]
Your sweet kiss will bring the rest
Your mouth on my mouth, wave on wave
We will meet the sea’s loud roar
No better way to cheat the grave

[Chorus]
One step and two, hold tight, let go
Twenty-and-four, hold tight, let go____
I’m nearly there, let go

[Chorus]
One step and two, hold tight, let go
Twenty-and-four, hold tight, let go____
I’m nearly there, let go, let go
Let go, let go
