Galway Girl - chords and lyrics

Still spending much time listening to the older songs in my collection. I remember my daughter buying me the single of Steve Earle and Sharon Shannon performing Steve's "Galway Girl" as if it was yesterday - Wikipedia tells me it was from Steve's "Transcendental Blues" and Sharon (+friends)"The Diamond Mountain Session" albums - both realeased in 2000! Unbelievable!

What's even harder to believe is that I didn't put the song up on my guitar chords site at the time, it's a great song. Anyway, eight years on, and Sharon has recently recorded the song again, this time with Mundy, so I am making good the omission, and have added the song to my Folk songs guitar chords page, at the link below:

Steve Earle / Sharon Shanon / Mundy "Galway Girl" chords and lyrics

You can buy Sharon's and Steve's albums, including those mentioned above, at CD Universe - Sharon Shannon music page ~~~ Steve Earle music page

Steve and Sharon's respective websites can be viewed at and

Enjoy your music!

Just discovered this great song on a trip to Ireland, where it has become a pub standard. Thanks for the chords!
