[Intro Chorus]
             Em                                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
                    D                                  Cadd9
But she fell in love with an English man
Cadd9 
Kissed her on the neck and

G
Then I took her by the hand
              D
Said baby I just want to dance

 

[Verse 1]
                             Em
I met her on Grafton street
G
Right outside of the bar
                               D
She shared a cigarette with me while
C
Her brother played the guitar
                                  Em
She asked me what does it mean the
G
Gaelic ink on your arm?
                             D
Said it was one of my friend’s songs
                                                          G
Do you want to drink on?
                        Em 
She took Jamie as a chaser
G
Jack for the fun
                       D
She got Arthur on the table
C
With Johnny riding a shotgun
Em
Chatted some more
G
One more drink at the bar
D
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance, you know

 

[Chorus 1]
             C                                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
                    D                                  C
But she fell in love with an English man
C
Kissed her on the neck and
G
Then I took her by the hand
              D
Said baby I just want to dance
                                              Cadd9     G      D      Em
With my pretty little Galway Girl
                                                  Cadd9     G      D      Em
You’re my pretty little Galway Girl

 

[Verse 2]
                                 Em
You know she beat me at darts and
G
Then she beat me at pool
                                 D
And then she kissed me like there was
C
Nobody else in the room
                   Em 
As last orders were called
G
Was when she stood on the stool
                D                                                                        G
After dancing to Ceili singing to trad tunes
                  Em
I never heard Carrickfergus
       G
Ever sung so sweet
               D                                     C
A cappella in the bar using her feet for the beat
                          Em                                           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 2]
             C                                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
                    D                                  C
But she fell in love with an English man
C
Kissed her on the neck and
G
Then I took her by the hand
              D
Said baby I just want to dance
                                               Cadd9   G
With my pretty little Galway Girl
D                               Em                  Cadd9   G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl

My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                               Em                  Cadd9  G      D    Em
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl

 

[Verse 3]
                           Em
Now we’ve outstayed our welcome
G
And it’s closing time
                
I was holding her hand, her hand
C
Was holding mine
            Em 
Our coats both smell of
G
Smoke, whisky and wine
                D
As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night
       Em
I walked her home
G
Then she took me inside
                   D
Finish some Doritos and
C
Another bottle of wine
      Em
I swear I’m going to put you
G
In a song that I write
                      D
About a Galway Girl and a perfect night

 

[Chorus 2]
             C                                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
                    D                                  C
But she fell in love with an English man
C
Kissed her on the neck and
G
Then I took her by the hand
              D
Said baby I just want to dance
                                               Cadd9   G
With my pretty little Galway Girl
D                               Em                  Cadd9   G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                               Em                  Cadd9   G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                               Em                  Cadd9  G      D    Em
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
