[Intro]

D A D G D


[Verse 1]

D
In Oranmore in the County Galway, 
    G        D                       G
One pleasant evening in the month of May,
Em         D                     
I spied a damsel, she was young and handsome 
    G      D      A              D - G - D
Her beauty fairly took my breath away


[Chorus]

            D
She wore no jewels, nor costly diamonds, 
   G        D                   G
No paint or powder, no, none at all. 
Em             D     
But she wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
    G         D        A               D - G - D  
And round her shoulders was a Galway Shawl. 


[Verse 2]

           D
We kept on walking, she kept on talking, 
          G        D                 G
'Till her father's cottage came into view. 
Em              D      
Says she: 'Come in, sir, and meet my father, 
    G       D            A              D - G - D
And play to please him " The Foggy Dew."


[Chorus]

            D
She wore no jewels, nor costly diamonds, 
   G        D                   G
No paint or powder, no, none at all. 
Em             D     
But she wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
    G         D        A               D - G - D  
And round her shoulders was a Galway Shawl. 


[Verse 3]

           D
She sat me down beside the fire 
       G        D                       G
I could see her father, he was six feet tall. 
Em           D
And soon her mother had the kettle singing 
    G       D        A                 D - G - D
All I could think of was the Galway shawl.


[Chorus]

            D
She wore no jewels, nor costly diamonds, 
   G        D                   G
No paint or powder, no, none at all. 
Em             D     
But she wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
    G         D        A               D - G - D  
And round her shoulders was a Galway Shawl. 


[Verse 4]

              D
I played "The Blackbird" and "The Stack of Barley", 
 G         D                     G
" Rodney's Glory" and "The Foggy Dew",
Em            D 
She sang each note like an Irish linnet. 
          G            D        A           D - G - D
While the tears flowed from her eyes so blue. 


[Chorus]

            D
She wore no jewels, nor costly diamonds, 
   G        D                   G
No paint or powder, no, none at all. 
Em             D     
But she wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
    G         D        A               D - G - D  
And round her shoulders was a Galway Shawl. 


[Verse 5]

             D
'Twas early, early, all in the morning,
       G       D                  G 
When I hit the road for old Donegal.
Em            D 
She said 'Goodby, sir,'she cried and kissed me
       G         D       A                D - G - D
And my heart remains with the Galway shawl


[Chorus]

            D
She wore no jewels, nor costly diamonds, 
   G        D                   G
No paint or powder, no, none at all. 
Em             D     
But she wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
    G         D        A               D - G - D  
And round her shoulders was a Galway Shawl.
