D
Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
      D    A    G
On a day-I-ay-I-ay
D
I met a little girl and we stopped to talk
      D          G    D
on a grand 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


D     D        D     G
G  D  G  D     A     D


D
We were halfway there when the rain came down
                G
On a day-I-ay-I-ay
        D
And she took me up to her flat downtown
       D         G          D
Of a grand soft day-I-ay-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


D     D     D     G
G  D  G  D  A     D
G                 A
G  D  G  Bm A     D


D                                          G
When I woke up I was all alone
         D                              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         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


D     D     D     G
G  D  G  D  A     D
D     D     D     G
G  D  G  D  A     D
G                 A
G  D  G  Bm A     D

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
