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


[Verse]
             Em
I met her on Grafton street
G
right outside of the bar
             D
She shared a cigarette with me
      C
while her brother played the guitar
             Em
She asked me what does it mean
    G
the Gaelic ink on your arm?
            D
Said it was one of my friend’s songs
                        G
do you want to drink on?


[Verse]
         Em                G
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
        D
She got Arthur on the table,
C
with Johnny riding a shotgun
Am                 G
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
     D
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance, you know


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


[Verse]
             Em
You know she beat me at darts
    G
and then she beat me at pool
             D
And then she kissed me
                 C
like there was nobody else in the room
        Em
As last orders were called
G
was when she stood on the stool
      D
After dancing to Ceili
                     G
singing to trad tunes


[Verse]
        Em                     G
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sung so sweet
    D                    C
A capella in the bar using her feet for the beat
            Am
Oh, I could have that voice
       G
playing on repeat for a week
            D
And in this packed out room swear

she was singing to me


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


[Bridge]
                      C      G    D
With my pretty little Galway Girl
                Em         C      G    D
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
                Em         C      G    D
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
                Em         C      G    D  Em
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl


[Verse]
          Em                   G
Now we’ve outstayed our welcome and it’s closing time
      D                          C
I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine
    Em                 G
Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine
      D
As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night


[Verse]
  Em              G
I walked her home then she took me inside
       D                 C
Finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine
  Em                         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]
    C                   G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        D                C
But she fell in love with an English man
C                          G
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
     D
Said baby I just want to dance


[Outro]

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