Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin’

I still see her dark eyes glowin’

She was 21 when I left Galveston

 

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing

While I watch the cannons flashing

I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

 

I still see her standing by the water

Standing there lookin’ out to sea

And is she waiting there for me?

On the beach where we used to run

 

Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying

Before I dry the tears she’s crying

Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun

At Galveston, at Galveston
