CAPO on II

[Chords]
Em:    022000
G:     320033
D:     xx0232
Cadd9: x32033 
C:     x32010 
Am7:   x02010

Note:
There are some differences between this tab and the ones who are already have been published. The Cadd9
is only played occasionally, most of time (verses) it should be just a normal C chord. Also an Am7 has been
added in the verse. Half way the verses there is a break on the D that should be followed by a G chord.


[Intro Chorus]
    Em                     G
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
        D                   Cadd9
But she fell in love with an English man
Cadd9                      G
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
     D
Said baby I just want to dance


[Verse 1]
             Em             G
I met her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
             D                       C
She shared a cigarette with me while her brother played the guitar
             Em                    G
She asked me what does it mean the Gaelic ink on your arm?
            D                                                G
Said it was one of my friend’s songs do you want to drink on?

         Em                G
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
        D                    C
She got Arthur on the table, with Johnny riding a shotgun
Am7                G
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
D
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance, you know


[Chorus 1]
    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
                      Cadd9  G     D     Em   
With my pretty little Galway Girl
                        Cadd9  G     D     Em
You’re my pretty little Galway Girl


[Verse 2]
             Em                   G
You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool
             D                          C
And then she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room
        Em                 G
As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool
      D                                     G  
After dancing to Ceili singing to trad tunes

        Em                     G
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sung so sweet
     D                    C 
A cappella in the bar using her feet for the beat
            Am7                    G
Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week
            D
And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me


[Chorus 2]
    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

                      Cadd9  G        
With my pretty little Galway Girl
D                Em         Cadd9  G    
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                Em         Cadd9  G
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                Em         Cadd9  G    D  Em
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl


[Verse 3]
          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

  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 3]
    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

                      Cadd9  G        
With my pretty little Galway Girl
D                Em         Cadd9  G    
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                Em         Cadd9  G
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
D                Em         Cadd9  G    D  Em
 My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl


[Outro]

Sounds great, but "Chilled out some more one more drink at the bar" should be "Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar"

Thanks for being so quick with these chords!
