Steve Earle - Galway Girl

Verse 1

           D                                                                              G

Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk. Of a day -I-ay-I-ay

  D                                    G                 D             D             A       D

I met a little girl and we stopped to talk. Of a fine soft day-i-ay

          G            D                        G          D

And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do

                   Bm          A                      G               D

'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue

          G                D                G           D

And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl

                    Bm      A                    G          D

'Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl


Verse 2

                D                                                                                           G

We were halfway there when the rain came down. Of a day -I-ay-I-ay

               Bm            A              G    D                          D            A       D

And she asked me up to her flat downtown. Of a fine soft day-i-ay

          G            D                        G          D

And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do

                   Bm          A                      G               D

'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue

       G             D                 G                D

So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl

          Bm       A                G          D

And I lost my heart to a Galway girl


Verse 3

           D                              D                                              G

When I woke up I was all alone. [melody only on this line]

            Bm        A                  G       D                                     D   A   D

With a broken heart and a ticket home. [melody only on this line]

          G           D                   G                          D

And I ask you now, tell me what would you do

          Bm          A                      G               D

If her hair was black and her eyes were blue

       G            D                 G                            D

I've traveled around I've been all over this world

                   Bm               A                    G          D

Boys I ain't never seen nothin' like a Galway girl
