Galveston oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston

It just took a while before I found the lyrics as I've had the song going round my head since seeing Galveston on the front page smiley - winkeye

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

Not sure who the songwriter is, but that's the rest of the lyrics.

Time to swing the internet into gear and see if I can now find a copy out there somewhere. I do have a paid for copy, so I shouldn't be stepping on anyones toes smiley - winkeye
