[Intro]

    Em7                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        D                    Cadd9
But she fell in love with an English man
Cadd9                      G
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
      D
Said, baby I just want to dance



[Verse 1]

             Em7            G
I met her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
             D                           Cadd9
She shared a cigarette with me while her brother played the guitar
             Em7                   G
She asked me what does it mean the Gaelic ink on your arm?
            D   
Said it was one of my friend’s songs do you want to drink on?
         Em7               G
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
        D                    Cadd9
She got Arthur on the table, with Johnny riding as a shotgun
Em7                G
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
D
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance, you know




[Chorus]

    Cadd9                   G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        D                    Em7
But she fell in love with an English man
Cadd9                       G
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
      D
Said, baby I just want to dance
                      Cadd9  G       D    Em7
With my pretty little Galway Girl
                       Cadd9   G      D    Em7
You’re my pretty little Galway Girl




[Verse 2]

             Em7                   G
You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool
             D                        Cadd9
And then she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room
         Em7                    G
As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool
      D                          
After dancing to Cèilidh singing to trad tunes
        Em7                     G
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sing so sweet
    D                      Cad99
A capella in the bar using her feet for the beat
            Em7                    G
Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week
            D
And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me




[Chorus]

    Em7                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        D                    Cadd9
But she fell in love with an English man
Cadd9                        G
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
      D
Said baby I just want to dance
                      Cadd9  G
With my pretty little Galway Girl
D           Em7            Cadd9  G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D           Em7            Cadd9  G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D           Em7            Cadd9  G       D   Em7
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl




[Verse 3] Palm mute

           Em7                  G
Now we’ve outstayed our welcome and it’s closing time
      D                       Cadd9
I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine
    Em7                   G
Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine
      D                         
As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night
  Em7              G
I walked her home then she took me inside
       D                  Cadd9
Finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine
  Em7                         G
I swear I’m going to put you in a song that I write
        D
About a Galway Girl and a perfect night




[Chorus]

    Cadd9                   G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        D                    Em7/Cadd9
But she fell in love with an English man
Cadd9                      G
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
     D
Said baby I just want to dance
                      Cadd9  G
With my pretty little Galway Girl
D           Em7            Cadd9  G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D           Em7            Cadd9  G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D           Em7            Cadd9  G       D   Em7
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
