The Galway Girl

D                                                                                               G                    
Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk  Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
D                                                                               G               D      
I met a little girl and we stoped to talk Of a fine soft day -I-ay-I-ay
           G          D                         G        D      
And I ask you, friend, what’s a fella to do
                   Bm                              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                      G          D        
‘Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl

D / / / Bm / G D    GD GD        A / G D
 
We were halfway there when the rain came down  Of a day -I-ay-I-ayAnd she asked me up to her flat downtown  Of a fine soft day -I-ay-I-ay
And I ask you, friend, what’s a fella to do
‘Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl
And I lost my heart to a Galway girl

BRIDGE (2X)

D                                                 G D  
When I woke up I was all alone
                                              G      D      
With a broken heart and a ticket home
            G        D                     G                      D    
And I ask you now, tell me what would you do
             Bm                           G                  D     
If her hair was black and her eyes were blue
            G        D                                            D      
I’ve traveled around I’ve been all over this world
                         Bm                              G           D  
Boys I ain’t never seen nothin’ like a Galway girl

BRIDGE (3X)

 

A German clockwinder

           G                            C
A German clockwinder to Dublin once came
  D                        C                 G
Benjamin Fuchs was the old German’s name
G                              C
And as he was winding his way ’round the strand
D                          C                G
He played on his flute and the music was grand
Chorus
Too-ra-lam-a-lam-a, Too-ra-lam-a-lam-a Too-ra-li-ay
Too-ra-li Oo-ra-li Oo-ra-li-ay
Too-ra-lam-a-lam-a, Too-ra-lam-a-lam-a Too-ra-li-ay
Too-ra-li Oo-ra-li Oo-ra-li-ay
There was a young lady from Grovenor Square
Who said that her clock was in need of repair
In walked the old German and to her delight
In less than five minutes, he had her clock right (Chorus)

And as they were sitting right down on the floor
There came a very loud knock on the door
In walked her husband and great was his shock
To see the old German wind up his wife’s clock (Chorus)
Then says her husband, “Look here Mary Ann,
Don’t let that bold German come in here again.
He wound up your clock and left mine on the shelf.
If your old clock needs winding I’ll do it myself!” (Chorus)
