Geraldine's Thinking Of Galway Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Written by Pat McKernan From the
album Songs from the high stool. Also recorded by The Furey Brothers And Davie Arthur.
[C]The dawn it is breaking and Geraldine's waking So [G]far from the place she calls [C]home The [C]new day is
dawning and Geraldine's longing For [G]far away over the [C]foam She always in[G]tended to [C]travel but she [F]never
in[C]tended to [G]stay Now [C]Geraldine's thinking of [Am]Galway But [C]Galway's a [G]long way a[C]way.
Chorus: [F]Geraldine's thinking of [C]Galway again You can [G]tell by the look in her [C]eyes [F]Sometimes
alone in the [C]night time Geraldine [G]cries She can [F]still see the moon over[C] Claddagh Or the [Am]sun going down
in Clew [C]Bay Geraldine's [G]thinking of [C]Galway so far far a[G]way.
[C]The band it is playing and Geraldine's swaying To the tune of "A pair of brown eyes" Somebody calls for
a small bit of order As the fiddler plays "Danny Boy" As she listens the music transports her To far away over the
sea Geraldine's thinking of Galway And that's where she's longing to be.
Since we started off touring many years ago. I think we went to Australia 19 times and had great
fun over there. I remember one St. Patrick's day we played two concerts over there. But we were very tired when we
fineshed. And what happened was we went down to a place called ''The Celtic Club'' just to wind down. We had, red
wine, white wine, all kinds of wine. It's one of these places when you went in you got locked in, and you wouldn't be
let out until seven o'clock in the morning when they are sweeping out the saw dust and dead bodies. But anyhow, we
met this fella called Pat McKernan who was in there singing and playing guitar and he came up with this great song 14
or 15 years later and it's called Geraldine's Thinking Of Galway.
