There are several renditions of this at YouTube. I have transcribed the one by The Dublin City Ramblers. You can also hear Bridie Gallagher, Majella, Daniel O'Donnell, Mick Galvin, and a couple of others.


HEAVEN AROUND GALWAY BAY

When they told me that Ireland was heaven,
I said, "That's where I'm longing to stay."
Then an emigrant voice said, "It's my land.
If you please sir, I'll show you the way."

You see smiling faces that greet you
With a "Céad míle fáilte a stor,"
And a candle burns bright in the window
Of a cabin with only one door.

When you see the moon rise over Claddagh,
And the golden sand kisses the sea,
Then you're on the right road, sir, for heaven,
For it's heaven around Galway Bay.

In the church on the hill 'neath the moonlight,
You can hear the sweet angel's voice sing.
It's the angel whose heart I may gladden
When I give her my gold Claddagh ring.

And the colleen who smiles so divinely
At the sound of the bell stops to pray,
Just you turn and say, "God bless you" kindly,
And to heaven she'll show you the way.

And an old-fashioned lady that greets you
Says, "Come in, sir. You're welcome to stay."
Then you're on the right road, sir, for heaven,
For it's heaven around Galway Bay.
Yes, it's heaven around Galway Bay.
