Written by Jimmy Webb.
Its actually in the key of F, but is much easier and enjoyable to play in G.


[Verse 1]

G             C   D7 G                      G7        C      Am7
Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
  D7     G                  C     Am7 
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
            D7  Em      C                G   
She was twenty-one when I left Galveston


[Verse 2]

G             C   D7 G                      G7        C       Am7 
Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
      D7  G                 C      Am7 
While I watch the cannons flashing
        D7  Em       C                 G 
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston


[Bridge]

Bb                       C       Bb     C
I still see her standing by the water
Dm                             Bb
Standing there lookin' out to sea
            Gm       C7       F
And is she waiting there for me?
        Am             Dm      Gm     C   D7
On the beach where we used to run


[Verse 3]

G             C  D7  G             G7       C     Am7
Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
       D7 G                    C     Am7 
Before I dry the tears she's crying
         Em                    C     Bm     Am7   
Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
         E   C          G 
At Galveston, at Galveston.

Rob.
