THis song is written apparently by Conor Leary, about his wife. I heard it sung by Allen Kelly, Dubliner living now in Queensland. He's recorded it with his Celtic group The Barleyshakes. No, I won't be putting up an abc or other guide to the melody. Just doesn't work with a song such as this.

THE QUEEN OF GALWAY TOWN
(Conor Leary)

1. She's as strong & solid as a mountain
She's as soft as new-driven snow
She's the source, an eternal fountain
Let the waters of love flow

CHORUS:
Beside her I'm just a clown
Picks me up when I get down
Though she doesn't wear a crown
She's the Queen of Galway town ( x4)

2. She's as bright as a summer's day
At night she glows like a harvest moon
She's the light out on the highway
The keeper of an ancient tune

3. She's as sweet as the honey
From the first flower of the spring
She's the song, bright and sunny
That the lark in the mornin' sings
