Written by Jimmy Webb

Galveston, oh Galveston
I still see 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 cannons flashing
I paint my gun and dream of Galveston
I can see her standing by the water
Standing there looking out to sea
And if she’s waiting there for me
On the beach where we used to run
Galveston, oh Galveston
I am so afraid of dying
Before I watch your seabirds flying in the sun
Oh Galveston
