Subject: Lyr Add: GALWAY GIRL (Steve Earle)
From: GUEST,erinmaidin
Date: 25 Jun 08 - 05:04 AM

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-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-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

Zen:   Lyrics as per erinmaidin's post. Written by Steve Earle.



   And performed brilliantly by him (on at least a couple of Sharon Shannon albums, and presumably on his own).

A great version on 'Transcendental Blues' - SS repays the compliment by adding accordion.

[D][Bhuel de thug mé cos ar an siúlóid mhór
Thart ar lár an [G]lae
Is[D] de bhuail mé le cailín breá dathúil
Agus thosaíomar ag plé.
Agus [G]n'fheadar liom,
Cad a [D]thiocfaidh orm.
Lena [A]gruaig chomh [G]dubh
Is a súile [D]gorm.
Ach [G]thóg mé [D]a lámh.
Thug mé rince di,
Agus [A]phóg mé [G]cailín na [D]Gaillimhe.

Bhíomar leath-shlí tríd nuair a d'oscail an spéir
Níos déanaí ins an lae.
Agus rith muid síos chuig an árasán
Chomh bog an lae i-ay.
Agus n'fheadar liom,
Cad a thiocfaidh orm.
Lena gruaig chomh dubh
Is a súile gorm.
Ach thóg mé a lámh.
Thug mé rince di,
Agus phóg mé cailín na Gaillimhe.

Bhuel de dhúisigh mé agus mé liom féin
D'fhág sí mé i-ay
Le mo chroí bhríste bhí pian laistigh
Agus n'fheadar liom,
Cad a tharlaíonn linn.
Nuair a chasamar leis an gcailín sin

Galway Girl Lyrics Chords

Enjoy mo chara!
