Intro Chorus:
    Gbm                     A
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        E                   D    
But she fell in love with an English man
D                          A
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
     E
Said baby I just want to dance

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


         Gbm                A
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
        E                    D
She got Arthur on the table, with Johnny riding as a shotgun
Bm7                A
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
E
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance, you know

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

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


        Gbm                     A
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sung so sweet
    E                    D 
A capella in the bar using her feet for the beat
            Bm7                    A
Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week
            E
And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me

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


                      D      A        
With my pretty little Galway Girl
E                Gbm         D      A    
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
E                Gbm         D      A
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
E                Gbm         D      A    E  Gbm
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl

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


  Gbm              A
I walked her home then she took me inside
       E                 D 
Finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine
  Gbm                         A
I swear I’m going to put you in a song that I write
        E
About a Galway Girl and a perfect night

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


                      D      A        
With my pretty little Galway Girl
E                Gbm         D      A    
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
E                Gbm         D      A
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
E                Gbm         D      A    E  Gbm
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
