lyrics

"Galway Lady" (traditional)

As I roved out through Galway city at the hour of twelve at night,
who did I see but a handsome lady combin' her hair by candle light?
I said: "Lady, I have come a-courtin' your fine favors for to win;
and if you'd but smile upon me, next Sunday night I'll come call again."

Falla talla roo tada roo dum diddy dum
falla talla roo tada roo dum day
Falla talla roo, tada roo dum diddy dum
falla talla roo tada roo dum day

She said: "So to me you've come a-courtin my fine favors for to win,
but it would give me the greatest pleasure if you should never come call again.
For what would I do when I go a-walkin' walkin' out in the morn-ing dew?
What would I do when I go a-walkin' walkin' out with the likes of you?"

Falla talla roo...

I said: "Lady I have gold and silver, lady I have houses and land.
lady I have ships on the ocean & all will be at your command."
She said: "What care I for your ships on the ocean what care I for your houses and land?
What care I for your gold and silver when all I want is a handsome man?"

Falla talla roo...

I said: "You ever see the grass in the morning all bedecked with jewels rare?
You ever see a handsome lady, a diamond sparking in her hair?"
She said: "Did you ever see a copper kettle mended with an old tin can?
Did you ever see a handsome lady married off to an ugly man?"

Falla talla roo...

"Galway Girl"
