Its actually in the key of F, but is much easier and enjoyable to play in G.
G C D7 G G7 C Am7Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
D7 G C Am7 I still see her dark eyes glowin'
D7 Em C G She was twenty-one when I left Galveston
G C D7 G G7 C Am7 Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
D7 G C Am7 While I watch the cannons flashing
D7 Em C G I clean my gun and dream of Galveston
Bb C Bb CI still see her standing by the water
Dm BbStanding there lookin' out to sea
Gm C7 FAnd is she waiting there for me?
Am Dm Gm C D7On the beach where we used to run
G C D7 G G7 C Am7Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
D7 G C Am7 Before I dry the tears she's crying
Em C Bm Am7 Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
E C G At Galveston, at Galveston.
