Lyrics

The Galway Girl  

Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk

On a day -I-ay-I-ay

I met a little girl and we stopped to talk

On a fine soft day -I-ay-I-ay

 

 

And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do

Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue

And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl

'Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl

 

We were halfway there when the rain came down

On a day -I-ay-I-ay

And she asked me up to her flat downtown

On a fine soft day -I-ay-I-ay

 

And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do

Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue

So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl

And I lost my heart to a Galway girl

 

When I woke up I was all alone

With a broken heart and a ticket home

 

And I ask you now, tell me what would you do

If her hair was black and her eyes were blue

I've traveled around I've been all over this world

Boys I ain't never seen nothin' like a Galway girl
