[C]Well I took a stroll on the old long walk of a day-I-ay- [F]ay
[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]taking a [C]whirl
Round the [Am]Salthill [G]prom with the [F]Galway [C]girl

[C]We were half way there when the rain came down, of a day I ay I [F]ay
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 [C]blue

With a [Am]broken [G]heart and a [F]ticket [C]home (not sung – of a fine soft [G]day I [C]ay)
And I [F]ask you [C]now tell me [F]what would you [C]do

I’ve [F]travelled [C]around I’ve been all [F]over this [C]world,
Boys, I ain’t [Am]never seen [G]nothing like a [F]Galway [C]girl
