Galveston, oh Galveston
I still hear your sea winds blowing
I still see her dark eyes glowing
She was twenty-one
When I left Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston
I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannon flashing
And I clean my gun
And I dream of Galveston

I still see her standin' by the water
Standin' there lookin' out to sea
And is she waiting there oh for me?
On the beach where we used to run

Galveston, oh Galveston
I am so afraid of dyin'
Before I dry the tears she's cryin'
Before I see, your sea birds flyin'
In the sun at Galveston

At Galveston
Oh, at Galveston
Oh, at Galveston
At Galveston
Hmm, hmm, hmm
Ooh, ooh
