The Galway Shawl

In Oranmore in the County Galway,
One pleasant evening in the month of May,
I spied a damsel, she was young and handsome
She nearly stole my heart away.

Chorus:
She wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
No paint no powder, no, none at all.
She wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
And round her shoulder was a Galway Shawl.

I played The Blackbird and The Stack of Barley
Rodney's Glory and The Foggy Dew
She sang each note like an Irish linnet.
And tears stood in her eyes so blue.

'Twas early, early, all in the morning,
I hit the road for old Donegal.
She said goodbye, sir, she cried and kissed me,
And my heart remained with the Galway shawl.

Chorus:
She wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
No paint no powder, no, none at all.
She wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
And round her shoulder was a Galway Shawl.

El Rebozo

1. Oye morenita linda
Quiero decirte una cosa
Quiero que sepas que te amo
Por ser linda y primorosa

Y también quiero saber
Que me digas con ternura
Que me digas con dulzura
si me has de corresponder

Ay ay ay ay
Seré dichoso
Cuando me tapes prieta del alma
con tu rebozo

Ay ay ay ay
Seré dichoso
Cuando me tapes prieta del alma
con tu rebozo

2. Voy a comprate un listón
Pa’ ponertelo en la frente
Pero ha de ser tricolor
Pa’ que te admire la gente

Pues ándale negra linda
Entrégame tu querer
Mira que te quiero mucho
Ya no me hagas padecer

3. Nos iremos a la feria
A bailar un zapateado
Al compás de los Huapangos
Con pasitos bien marcados

Irás de china poblana
Con tus zapatos chillantes
Y yo vestido de charro
Nos veremos elegantes

She wore no jewels, no costly diamonds,
No paint no powder, no, none at all.
She wore a bonnet with a ribbon on it
And round her shoulder was a Galway Shawl.

Ay ay ay ay
Seré dichoso
Cuando me tapes prieta del alma
con tu rebozo

Ay ay ay ay
Seré dichoso
Cuando me tapes prieta del alma
con tu rebozo
