Liam Clancy - Galway Races


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[INTRO:] D

[VERSE 1:]
                 F
As I rode out to Galway Town to seek for recreation
       Dm                        C             F
On the seventeenth of August, me mind being elevated
          Dm           C                                 F
There was multitudes assembled with their tickets at the station
                              Dm       C       Dm
Me eyes began to dazzle and I going to see the races


[CHORUS:]
       F           C
With a wack fol de dil 
       Dm
Fol de diddly idle lay___


[VERSE 2:]
                         F
It's there you'll see confectioners and sugar-sticks and dainties
    Dm                       C            F
And lozenges and oranges and lemonade and raisins
    Dm              C                         F
And gingerbread and spices to accommodate the ladies
          N.C.            
And a big crúibin for thruppence to be pickin' while you're able


[CHORUS:]
       F           C
With a wack fol de dil 
       Dm
Fol de diddly idle lay___


[VERSE 3:]
                         F
And there you'll see the pipers and the fiddlers competing
                  Dm                  C               F
And nimble footed dancers and they're tripping on the daisies
    Dm               C                                 F
And others crying "Cigars and lights" and bills for all the races
                                        Dm        C      Dm
With the colours of the jockeys and the price and horses ages


[CHORUS:]
        F           C
With me wack fol de dil 
       Dm
Fol de diddly idle lay___


[VERSE 4:]
                          F
It's there you'll see the jockeys and they mounted on so stably
    Dm                           C                        F
The blue, the pink, the red, the green, the emblem of our nation
                           Dm                C               F
When the bell was rung for starting, all the horses seemed impatient
                                            Dm        C   Dm
I thought they never stood on ground, their speed was so amazing


[CHORUS:]
       F           C
With a wack fol de dil 
       Dm
Fol de diddly idle lay___


[VERSE 4:]
          F
There was half a million people there of all denominations
    Dm            C           N.C.              F
The Catholic, the Protestant, the Jew and Presbyterian
                    Dm         C              F
There was yet no animosity, no matter what persuasion
                            Dm     C       Dm
But fortune, hospitality, inducing fresh acquaintance


[CHORUS:]
        F           C
With me wack fol de dil 
       Dm
Fol de diddly idle lay___


[CHORUS:]
            F           C
Ah, with me wack fol de dil 
       Dm                  C Dm
Fol de diddly idle lay____
