Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*I have traveled all 'round Ireland from Dublin to Mayo
From Donegal to Kerry - From Leitrim to Sleigo
But in all the miles I've traveled, all the roads that I've been down
There's one place I remember best, that's dear old Galway town

4 ladies promenade one time around, back home and swing
Swing that man and promenade
You see the smilin' faces of the people all around
I'll not forget the folks I met in dear old Galway town


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around
Walk in and square thru 4, all the way
Swing thru and then boys run right
Ferris wheel, zoom
All double pass thru, lead couples partner trade
Swing corner, promenade
You see the smilin' faces of the people all around
I'll not forget the folks I met in dear old Galway town


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies promenade one time around
Back home and swing with your man
Join all your hands, circle left around the ring
Left allemande and you weave
If you ever go to Galway and just walk down by the sea
Swing that girl and promenade
You see the smilin' faces of the people all around
I'll not forget the folks I met in dear old Galway town


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*When I go across to England and greet the people there
There's some from Cork and Wexford and others are from Clair
Each one of them are friendly, but I have always found
You could not meet no nicer folk than those from Galway town
