Galway Queen

Loved a girl from a Galway town
But our love could never be
For I longed to see the world
And the treasures it held for me

So I left my need of home
Sailed across the raging sea
And to Boston I did roam
Worked in a town they called Quincy

As each day passed I did find
The fame and fortune I had in mind
Our streets were not paved with gold
Even the summer nights were cold

Oh I miss my Galway Queen, my friends in Athenry
Wish I could be there tonight
With my lovely Nancy close by my side


Well the days went slowly by
I started longing for my home
What good of searching for a dream
When you're not with the one you love

So before her love grows cold
'Tis back to Galway I would go
To be with the one I love
And to stray from home no more

Repeat chorus twice to end
