Galway Girl

Song Author Steve Earle Lyrics by: Steve Earle Performer: Steve Earle Submitted by: gilsi
[D]Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
One a day -I-ay-[G]I-ay
[Bm]I met a little [A]girl and we [G]stopped to [D]talk
Of a fine soft [A]day-[D]I-ay
And I [G]ask you, [D]friend, what's a [G]fella to [D]do  
'Cause her [Bm]hair was [A]black and her [G]eyes were [D]blue
And I [G]knew right [D]then I'd be [G]takin' a [D]whirl
'Round the [Bm]Salthill [A]Prom with a [G]Galway [D]girl

[D]    [G]    [D]    [Bm]    [A]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [A7]    
[D]We were halfway there when the rain came down
Of a day -I-ay-[G]I-ay
And she [Bm]asked me [A]up to her [G]flat down[D]town
Of a fine soft [A]day-I-[D]ay  
And I [G]ask you, [D]friend, what's a [G]fella to [D]do  
'Cause her [Bm]hair was [A]black and her [G]eyes were [D]blue
So I [G]took her [D]hand and I [G]gave her a [D]twirl
And I [Bm]lost my [A]heart to a [G]Galway [D]girl

[D]    [G]    [D]    [Bm]    [A]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [A7]    
[D]    [G]    [D]    [Bm]    [A]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [A7]    
[D]    [G]    [D]    [Bm]    [A]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [A7]    
[D]When I woke up I was all alone (of a day-i-ay-i-[G]ay)  
With a [Bm]broken [A]heart and a [G]ticket [D]home (of a fine soft [A]day-i-[D]a)  
And I [G]ask you [D]now, tell me [G]what would you [D]do  
If her [Bm]hair was [A]black and her [G]eyes were [D]blue
I've [G]traveled [D]around, I've been [G]all over this [D]world
Boys I [Bm]ain't never seen [A]nothin' like a [G]Galway [D]girl

[D]    [G]    [D]    [Bm]    [A]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [A7]    
[D]    [G]    [D]    [Bm]    [A]    [G]    [D]    [A]    [A7]    

Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
One a day -I-ay-I-ay
I met a little girl and we stopped to talk
Of a fine soft day-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
Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
And she asked me up to her flat downtown
Of a fine soft day-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 (of a day-i-ay-i-ay)
With a broken heart and a ticket home (of a fine soft day-i-a)
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
