"Irish folk songs" have a tradition that exists not only in "Irish Folk Music" but in "Celtic music" worldwide.
 
This Celtic "mp3" with "Song Lyrics" included has to be my favourite "Irish" ballad of all time.
 
It is about a wealthy Irish nobleman who meets a beautiful young working girl on the road to Donegal and after spending the night with her they fall in love with each other.
 
But in the morning they realise that they come from so different lifestyles that they part company never to meet again even though they  love each other.
 
It seems to be another of those Celtic heartbreakers when you sing those words in the chorus "She wore no jewels,no costly diamonds"
 
If you have never heard this song before then you are in for a treat and that is the beauty of Celtic music there is always another song you have somehow never heard before.
 
So to all those visiting here for the first time please enjoy the Celtic Mp3 of not only the galway Shawl but also the other Celtic Mp3 tracks as well.

Verse 1

Near Erinmore, in the County Galway,
One pleasant evening, I made my way,
I spied a Damsel, so fair and handsome,
her beauty nearly took, my breath away.

chorus

She wore no Jewels, no costly diamonds,
No paint no powder,no none at all,
She wore a bonnet, wi' ribbons on it,
and round her shoulders was a Galway Shawl.

verse 2

We kept on walking, and kept on talking,
till her father's cottage, came into view,
she said come in Sir, and meet my father,
and play to please him, the Foggy Dew.

verse 3

I sang the Blackbird, The Stack's of Barley,
Old Rodney's Glory, and the Foggy Dew,
she sang each note, like an Irish Linnet,
till tears came in to, her eyes so blue.

verse 4

T'was very early, all in the morning,
I took the road for, old Donegal,
she said goodbye Sir, and then she kissed me,
But my heart remains wi' the Galway Shawl.
