Galveston, oh Galveston

I'm thinking of making a day of it in Galveston soon. I could see how the birds are moving, do a little shopping, and maybe scout out the feral cat situation there. When I think of Galveston I often think of this song.

Artist/Band: Campbell Glen
Lyrics for Song: Galveston
Lyrics for Album: Very Best of Glen Campbell
Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston
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
