Carrick-a-rede

The rope bridge at Carrick-a-rede

A song about falling in love and the scary/exhilarating feeling it brings.  A wonderful song by Cathie Ryan from her 2001 CD, Somewhere Along the Road.

Carrick-a-rede

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

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

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)

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

One step and two, hold tight, let go
Twenty and four, hold tight, let go
I’m nearly there, let go

(Chorus)

Let go, let go
