Chorus:
         F#m               A
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
             E            Dadd9           D
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Dadd9
     Kissed her on the neck
         A
     And then I took her by the hand,
            E
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance.”

             F#m
I met her on Grafton Street
A
Right outside of the bar,
             E
She shared a cigarette with me
      D
While her brother played the guitar.
             F#m
She asked me what does it mean,
    A
The Gaelic ink on your arm?
            E
Said it was one of my friend’s songs,
                     Aadd9
Do you want to drink on?

         F#m           A
She took Jamie as a chaser,
Jack for the fun,
        E
She got Arthur on the table
D                               Bm7
With Johnny riding as shot gun,
Chatted some more,
A
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,
     Kissed her on the neck
         A
     And then I took her by the hand,
            E
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance
                           D    A        E F#m
     With my pretty little Galway Girl.”
                             D    A       E F#m
     You’re my pretty little Galway Girl.

              F#m
You know, she beat me at darts
    A
And then she beat me at pool,
             E
And then she kissed me
                 D
Like there was nobody else in the room.
        F#m
As last orders were called,
    A
Was when she stood on the stool
      E
After dancing to céilí,
                    Aadd9
Singing to trad tunes.

        F#m
I never heard Carrickfergus
A
Ever sung so sweet,
     E
A cappella in the bar
D
Using her feet for a beat,
            Bm7
Oh, I could have that voice
        A
Playing on repeat for a week,
            E
And in this packed out room swear
She was singing to me, you know.

Chorus:
         D                 A
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
             E            D
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Kissed her on the neck
         A
     And then I took her by the hand,
            E
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance.”
                      D    A
     My pretty little Galway Girl,
   E             F#m            D    A
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
   E             F#m            D    A
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
   E             F#m            D    A       E F#m
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl.

              F#m
And now we’ve outstayed our welcome
A
And it’s closing time,
     E
I was holding her hand,
    D
Her hand was holding mine.
    F#m
Our coats both smell
   A
Of smoke, whisky and wine
      E
As we fill up our lungs
With the cold air of the night.

 F#m
I walked her home,
A
Then she took me inside,
       E
Finish some Doritos
     D
And another bottle of wine.
  Bm7
I swear I’m going to put you
A
In a song that I write
        E
About a Galway Girl
And a perfect night.

Chorus:
         F#m               A
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
             E            Dadd9
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Kissed her on the neck
         A
     And then I took her by the hand,
            E
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance.”
                      D    A
     My pretty little Galway Girl,
   E             F#m            D    A
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
   E             F#m            D    A
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
   E             F#m            D    A       E F#m
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl.
