|you mean it wasnt kevin mckrell that wrote that song???|
i sent someone some bad info....
need to make it right....... thanks meliszabeth nice to meet ya........
Evidently it is a gentleman in Australia by the name of Pat McKernan
that wrote Geraldine's Thinking of Galway. meliszabeth is correct. On McKernan's website he refers to the Fureys are going to record it as well. At one point both the McKrells and The Fureys played together at a concert.
The tune that is played here appears to be off of the McKrells' "Live"
album and is listed in the album's contents.
According to meliszabeth, she has the correct lyrics with guitar tablature.
|Geraldine's Thinking of Galway|
Oh the [G]dawn it is breaking [Em]Geraldine's waking ; Far [D]away from the place she calls [G]home
A new day is dawning and [Em]Geraldine's longing ; For a [D]place far away o'er the [G]foam
She'd [C]always [D]intended to [G]travel ; But she [C]never [G or Em]intended to [D]stay
Geraldine's thinking of [G]Galway ; And [C]Galway's a [D]long way [G]away.
[C]Geraldine's thinkin' of [G]Galway again ; You can [D]tell by the look in her [G]eyes[G7]
[C]Sometimes alone in the [G]night time ; [Em]Geraldine [D]cries
She can [C]still see the moon over [G]Claddah ; Or that [Em]sun going [D]down in [C]Clew Bay
Geraldine's [D]thinking of [G]Galway ; And [C]Galway's a [D]long way [G]away.
Oh the [G]band it is playing and [Em]Geraldine's swaying ; To the [D]tune of 'A Pair of Brown [G]Eyes'
Somebody calls her for a [Em]small bit of order ; While the [D]fiddler plays 'Danny Boy'
As she [C]listens the [D]music [G]transports her ; To [C]far away [G or Em]over the [D]sea
Geraldine's thinking of [G]Galway ; [C]That's where she's [D]longing to [G]be.
