Galway Girl

Steve Earle

 Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
 G
Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
 BmAGD
 I met a little girl and we stopped to talk
 AD
On a fine soft day -I-ay
 GDGD
And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do
 BmAGD
'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
 GDGD
And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl
 BmAGD
'Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl
 DGDBmAGDAA7D
                    
 D
 We were halfway there when the rain came down
 G
Of a day -I-ay-I-ay
 BmAGD
She asked me up to her flat downtown
 AD
On a fine soft day -I-ay
 GDGD
And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do
 BmAGD
'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
 GDGD
So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl
 BmAGD
Oh and I lost my heart to a Galway girl
 DGDBmAGDAA7D

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

I've changed the 'A' to Bm for 'hair' and 'Salthill' and I think it gives it a little more...try and see what ye think.
