Galway Bay

This song is by The Clancy Brothers and appears on the album In Person at Carnegie Hall (1963).

Maybe someday, I'll go back again to Ireland
If my dear old wife would pass away
Sure she nearly has my heart broke with her naggin'
She's got a mouth as big as Galway Bay

See her drinkin' 16 pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon
And then she can walk home without a sway
If the sea were beer instead of salty water
She would live and die in Galway Bay

See her drinkin' 16 pints of Padgo Murphy's
When the barman says "I think its time to go"
She doesn't try to speak to him in gaelic
But in a language that the clergy do not know

On her back she has tattooed a map of Ireland
And when she takes her bath on Saturday
She rubs the Sunlight Soap around by Claddagh
Just to watch the suds roll down by Galway Bay
