Well I took a stroll on the old long walk of a day-I-ay-  
F

Am 
I met a little  
G 
girl and we  
F 
stopped to  
C 
talk on a fine, soft  
G 
day-I-
C 
ay
C 
And I  
F 
ask you  
C 
friend what’s a  
F 
fellah to  
C 
do
 
Cause her  
Am 
hair was  
G 
black her  
F 
eyes were  
C 
blue
C 
And I  
F 
knew right  
C 
then I’d  
F

Round the

We were half way there when the rain came down, of a day I ay I

And she  
Am 
asked me  
G 
up to her  
F 
flat 
 
down
C 
town, of a fine soft  
G 
day I  
C 
ay
C 
And I  
F 
ask you  
C 
friend what’s a  
F 
fellah to  
C 
do
 
Cause her  
Am 
hair was  
G 
black her  
F 
eyes were

So I  
F 
took her  
C 
hand and I  
F 
gave her a

When I woke up I was all alone (not sung – of a day I

G 
heart and a

ticket 
 
 
C 
home (not sung – of a fine soft

And I  
F 
ask you  
C

what would you  
C 
do
 
If her

I’ve  
F 
travelled 
 
 
C 
around I’ve been all  
F 
over this  
C

Boys, I ain’t  
Am 
never seen  
G 
nothing like a  
F 
Galway
