Ch.She Em played the fiddle G in an Irish band But she D fell in love Cadd9 with an English man Cadd9 Kissed her on the neck and G then I took her by the hand Said, "D Baby, I just D want to dance"
1.I met her on Em Grafton street G right outside of the bar She shared a D cigarette with me while C her brother played the guitar She asked me Em what does it mean, the G Gaelic ink on your arm? Said it was D one of my friend's songs, do you want to drink on?
She took Em Jamie as a chaG ser, Jack for the fun She got D Arthur on the table C with Johnny riding a shotgun Am7 Chatted some more, G one more drink at the bar Then put D Van on the jukebox, got up to dance
Ch.You know, she C played the fiddle G in an Irish band But she D fell in love C with an English man C Kissed her on the neck and G then I took her by the hand Said, "D Baby, I just want to dance" With my pretty little Cadd9 GalG way GirlDEm
You're my pretty little Cadd9 GalG way GirlDEm
2.You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool And then she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool After dancing the céili singing to trad tunes
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sung so sweet A cappella in the bar using her feet for a beat Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me
3.And now we've outstayed our welcome and it's closing time I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night I walked her home then she took me inside To finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine I swear I'm gonna put you in a song that I write About a Galway Girl and a perfect night
