If Wishes Were Fishes Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Eric Bogle. This is another one of Eric's finest songs, he has a knack of making a song sound as if it's been around for a hundred years, a brilliant songwriter. Eric Bogle comes from Scotland but emigrated to Australia many years ago. When he wrote Leaving Nancy it was about leaving his mother at the train station when he was heading off for greener pastures. He done a tour of Ireland a few years ago and I finally got the chance to see him play. What a great show he puts on.

I [D] wish I was home again, [G] home in my heart again,
It's [D] been a long time since my heart talked to [A]me; [D]
Wastin' my precious days, [G] wishin' my life away,
If [D] wishes were fishes, we'd all cast [A] nets into the [D] sea.

I wish I was young again, my song still be sung again,
The sweet tunes of my life have gone sour and off key;
Writin' my tired old rhymes, tryin' to turn back time,
If wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets into the sea.

Chorus:
If [G] wishes were [A] fishes, I [D] know where I'd [G] be, [C]
Casting my net in the dark rolling [A] sea;
And [G] if my net's [A] empty when it [D] comes back to [G] shore,
I'll [D] throw it away and go fishing no [A] more.

I wish I could care again, reach out and share again,
Mend what's been broken and let it run free;
The older I get it seems, more wishin' takes the place of dreams,
If wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets into the sea
