[Verse 1]
D F#mIn Oranmore in the county Galway,
F#m Bm G AOne pleasant evening in the month of May;
A D F#mI spied a damsel,she was young and handsom,
Bm A D G DHer beauty fairly took my breath away.
[Chorus]
D F#mShe wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
Bm G ANo paint or powder, no none at all;
A D F#mShe wore a bonnet with ribbons on it,
Bm A D G DAnd on her shoulder was the Galway shawl.
[Verse 2]
D F#mWe kept on walking, she kept on talking,
Bm G ATill her father's cottage came into view;
A D F#mShe said: Come in, sir, and meet my father,
Bm A D G DAnd play to please him The Foggy Dew.
[Chorus]
D F#mShe wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
Bm G ANo paint or powder, no none at all;
A D F#mShe wore a bonnet with ribbons on it,
Bm A D G DAnd on her shoulder was the Galway shawl.
[Verse 3]
D F#mShe sat me down beside the fire,
Bm G AI could see her father, he was six feet tall;
A D F#mAnd soon her mother had the kettle singing,
Bm A D G DAnd all I could think of was the Galway shawl.
[Chorus]
D F#mShe wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
Bm G ANo paint or powder, no none at all;
A D F#mShe wore a bonnet with ribbons on it,
Bm A D G DAnd on her shoulder was the Galway shawl.
[Verse 4]
D F#mI played The Blackbird and The Stack Of Barley,
Bm G ARodney's Glory, and The Foggy Dew;
A D F#mShe sang each note like an Irish linnet,
Bm A D G DAnd the tears they flowed in her eyes of blue.
[Chorus]
D F#mShe wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
Bm G ANo paint or powder, no none at all;
A D F#mShe wore a bonnet with ribbons on it,
Bm A D G DAnd on her shoulder was the Galway shawl.
[Verse 5]
D F#m'Twas early, early, all in the morning,
Bm G AI hit the road for old Donegal;
A D F#mShe said: Goodbye, sir, she cried and kissed me,
Bm AAnd my heart remained with the Galway shawl.
[Chorus]
D F#mShe wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
Bm G ANo paint or powder, no none at all;
A D F#mShe wore a bonnet with ribbons on it,
Bm A D G DAnd on her shoulder was the Galway shawl.
