Subject:  galveston oh galveston!
Message:  I very much, read "maybe", wanted to go go down to GALVESTON on my visiting to Houston.

How many miles is this TOWN away from Houston town???

Dear Jimmy Webb got many years ago the "key to this town!" because of this song.

Also today got the new cd 4TROOPS singing "Galveston" on SONY.


J.W.s tune sung by Glen Campbell back then late 1960`ties.

Maybe one of the most recorded and sung tune in the music history!!!!


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 crashin`
While I watch the cannon flashin`
And I clean my gun
and I dream of Galveston.

I still see her standing by the water,
Standing there looking 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 see your sea birds flying
in the sun, at Galveston, at Galveston
