DD chord
Well, I took a stroll on the old long walk
      DD chord    AA chord    GG chord
On a day-I-ay-I-ay
DD chord
I met a little girl and we stopped to talk
      DD chord          GG chord    DD chord
on a grand soft day-I-ay
      GG chord          DD chord               GG chord        DD chord
And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do
            BmBm chord        AA chord            GG chord         DD chord
'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
        GG chord         DD chord           GG chord         DD chord
And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl
            BmBm chord        AA chord           GG chord      DD chord
'Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl

DD chord
We were halfway there when the rain came down
                GG chord
On a day-I-ay-I-ay
        DD chord
And she took me up to her flat downtown
       DD chord         GG chord          DD chord
Of a grand soft day-I-ay-I-ay
      GG chord          DD chord               GG chord       DD chord
And I ask you, friend, what's a fella to do
            BmBm chord        AA chord             GG chord         DD chord
'Cause her hair was black and her eyes were blue
      GG chord        DD chord          GG chord          DD chord
So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl
       BmBm chord       AA chord          GG chord      DD chord
And I lost my heart to a Galway girl

DD chord                                          GG chord
When I woke up I was all alone
         DD chord                              GG chord  DD chord
With a broken heart and a ticket home
      GG chord        DD chord            GG chord             DD chord
And I ask you now, tell me what would you do
       BmBm chord         AA chord            GG chord          DD chord
If her hair was black and her eyes were blue
       GG chord        DD chord                  GG chord          DD chord
I've traveled around I've been all over this world
        BmBm chord               AA chord              GG chord      DD chord
Boys I ain't never seen nothin' like a Galway girl

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
