The Galway Girl Lyrics

Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
I met a little girl and we stopped to talk
On a grand 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
‘Down 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 took me up to her flat downtown
On a grand 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 then 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 friend, what would you do
If her hair was black and her eyes were blue
See I’ve traveled around I’ve been all over the world
Boys I ain’t never seen nothin’ like a Galway girl


Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk. Of 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 alway 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 alway girl


When I woke up I was all alone. [melody only on this line]

With a broken heart and a ticket home. [melody only on this line]

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 alway girl
