G/A

D            G  A  D
Galveston oh Galveston
                  D7        G
I still hear your sea winds blowing
A       D                 G       A
I still see her dark eyes glowing
        Bm       G      A     D   (G A D)
She was 21  when I left Galveston

G/A

D            G  A  D
Galveston oh Galveston
                  D7        G
I still hear your sea waves crashing
A       D                  G        A
While I watch the cannon's flashing
           Bm      G        A     D   (G A D)
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

G/A

F                        G      F     G A
I still see her standing by the water
Am                            G F
Standing there looking out to sea
                   Dm        C
And is she waiting there for me
       Em                     Dm
On the beach where we used to run

G/A

D            G  A  D
Galveston oh Galveston
     D7           G
I am so afraid of dying
A        D                   G      A
Before I dry the tears she's crying
         Bm         D        G      A      G  E
Before I watch your seabirds flying in the sun
   A     Bm  G         D
At Galveston  at Galveston

D  G  A  D D7 G A D G A Bm G A D . . .

Ending doesn't quite work as written above, IMO. Last two lines should go like this:

"Before I (Bm) watch your (F#m) seabirds (Em) flying (A) in the (E) sun, (G) at (Bm) Galveston, (G) at (D) Galveston."

Also, there is a walk down between the G and A in the second and in the third line of each verse like this: G, G/F#, Em then A.

At least that's what I hear in the recording.

Pencom: You're more than welcome. I've loved this song since it aired on the AM radio when I was a kid. Jimmy Webb and Glen Campbell had some of the 60's best chemistry.

ps: I enjoy your submitals ... keep 'em coming.
