Heaven Around Galway Bay Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords
This is a sort of ''Old Fashioned'' song about Galway, to me, the air and words of the song are a thing of beauty and the song might well have been a rather lovely love song. Written by Eamonn O'Shea .Recorded by Foster & Allen , The Dublin City Ramblers ,Daniel 'O Donnell ,Margo , Paddy Reilly . If you came here looking for the other song called Galway Bay Lyrics
[D]When they told me that Ireland was[G] heaven,
I said, [A7]"That's where I'm longing to[D] stay."
Then[D] an emigrant voice said "that's[G] my land
if you[D] please Sir, I'll[A] show you the[D] way."
You will see smiling faces that greet you
with a "Cead Mile Failte" at store
and the candle burns bright in the window
of a cabin with only one door.
When you[G] see the moon rise over[D] Claddagh
and the golden sand[G] kisses the[A] sea
then you're[D] on the right road Sir for[G] heaven
for it's[D] heaven a[A]round Galway[D] Bay.
In the church on the hill in the moonlight
you can hear a sweet angel voice sing
It's the angel whose heart I might gladden
when I give her my gold Claddagh ring.
And the carling who smiles so divinely
at the sound of the bell stops to pray
just you turn and say"God let she kindly"
and to heaven she'll show you the way
