GALWAY GIRL 4/4 (Use capo on 2nd fret for Mundy version)
Well I (D)took a strool on the old long walk,
Of a day I-ay I-(G)ay
I (Bm)met a little (A)girl and we (G)stopped to (D)talk,
Of a fine soft (A)day I (D)ay-I ay

And I (G)ask you (D)friend
What’s a (G)fella to (D)do
Because her (Bm)hair was (A)black and her (G)eyes were (D)blue,
And I (G)knew right (D)then
I’d be (G)taking a (D)whirl
Round the (Bm)Salthill (A)prom with a (G)Galway (D)girl

D-D-D-D-G-G-G-D G-D-G-D-A-A-A-D

We were (D)half way there when the rain came down,
Of a day I ay I (G)ay
And she (Bm)took me (A)up to her (G)flat down(D)town,
On a fine soft (A)day I (D)ay-I ay,

And I (G)ask you (D)friend
What’s a (G)fella to (D)do
Because her (Bm)hair was (A)black and her (G)eyes were (D)blue,
So I (G)took her (D)hand
And I (G)gave her a (D)twirl
And then I (Bm)lost my (A)heart to a (G)Galway (D)girl

D-D-D-D-G-G-G-D G-D-G-D-A-A-A-D
G-G-G-G-D-D-A-A G-D-G-D-A-A-A-D D-D-D-D

When I (D)woke up I was all alone,
D-D-G-G
With a (Bm)broken (A)heart and a (G)ticket (D)home,
D-G-D-D

And I (G)ask you (D)friend
Oh (G)what would you to d(D)o,
If her (Bm)hair was (A)black and her (G)eyes were (D)blue,
See I've (G)travelled a(D)round
I've been (G)all over this (D)world, - boys
And (Bm)never seen (A)nothing like a (G)Galway (D)girl

D-D-D-D-G-G-G-D G-D-G-D-A-A-A-D
D-D-D-D-G-G-G-D G-D-G-D-A-A-A-D
G-G-G-G-D-D-A-A G-D-G-D-A-A-A-D

The video on how to play the song on tin whistle is by Jean-Baptiste Meynard who is using a D whistle. The notes played may not be exactly the same as I have given. Be imaginative and play your own version of the tune. No tune has to be played exactly the same as who made it famous. Once the basic melody of the tune is kept in place that's all that matters.

That's it, you repeat it all three times over for the full song. Some versions have solos after each of the verses. The solos are roughly the same notes as the verse with a bit of ad-libbing. As these are ''Lead Notes'' they are not only for the tin whistle but are suitable for accordion and fiddle. The mandolin tab is below.
