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
