Galway Girl


    Fa#m                     La
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        Mi                    Re
But she fell in love with an English man
Fa#m                          La
Kissed her on the neck and then
                   I took her by the hand
     Mi
Said baby I just want to dance
           Fa#m             La
I met her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
           Mi                            Re
She shared a cigarette with me while her brother
                              played the guitar
          Fa#m                    La
She asked me what does it mean the Gaelic
                           ink on your arm?
         Fa#m
Said it was one of my friend’s songs
        do you want to drink on?
         Fa#m              La
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
        Mi
She got Arthur on the table
Re
with Johnny riding as a shotgun
Fa#m                 La
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
Mi
Then put Van on the jukebox
          got to dance, you know

    Fa#m                La
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        Mi             Re
But she fell in love with an English man
Fa#m
Kissed her on the neck and
La
 then I took her by the hand
     Mi
Said baby I just want to dance
                      Fa#m    La   Mi Re
With my pretty little Galway Girl
                        Fa#m    La  Mi Re
You’re my pretty little Galway Girl

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

    Fa#m                La
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        Mi             Re
But she fell in love with an English man
Fa#m
Kissed her on the neck
    La
and then I took her by the hand
     Mi
Said baby I just want to dance
                      Fa#m    La
With my pretty little Galway Girl
Mi              Re           Fa#m    La
  My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
Mi              Re           Fa#m    La
  My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
Mi              Re           Fa#m    La   Mi Re
  My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl

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

    Fa#m                 La
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        Mi             Re
But she fell in love with an English man
Fa#m                       La
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
     Mi
Said baby I just want to dance
                      Fa#m    La
With my pretty little Galway Girl
Mi              Re           Fa#m    La
  My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
Mi              Re           Fa#m    La
  My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
Mi              Re           Fa#m    La   Mi Re
  My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
