Misc Stewart Lee - Galway Girl chords
Highlighted Show chord diagrams
This is a beautiful version of Steve Earle's "Galway Girl" by Stewart Lee. I love how he gives the song the tragic and sad mood it deserves - this is about a broken heart, after all. This song was played at the very end of his 2010 show "If You Prefer a Milder Comedian, Please Ask For One" with Nick Pynn on the violin. Do yourself a favour and buy that amazing DVD. You can find the song on that YouTube they have now, but experiencing the full performance is a must. Couple of things: Play the A like x02230, Light strums without hitting the e string (xx023x) in the verse sounds better to me, On the D chord, hammer the G string on the 2nd fret when it feels right, He does a run on the G chord sometimes, like ( E |--3--2--0-) but I'm not sure. Intro (with Violin): D-G-D-G-D A-G-A-D Bm-A-G-D A-G-A-G-D A-G-D D I took a stroll on the old long walk A G On a day -I-ay-I-ay G I met a little girl and we stopped to talk A G D On a fine day -I-ay-I-ay G D G D And I'm asking you son, what would you do Bm A G D For her hair was black and her eyes were blue G D G D And I knew right then I'd be takin' a whirl Bm A G D I lost my heart to a Galway Girl D-G-D-G-D A-G-A-D D A G When I woke up I was all alone G A G With a broken heart and a ticket home G D G D And I'm asking you son, what'd you have done Bm A G D For her hair was black and her eyes were blue G D G D And I've been all over this big old world Bm A G D And I ain't never seen nothin' like a Galway Girl G D And I give it to you straight G D Like a cyder that's made Bm A G From one hundred percent pear---s Bm A G From one hundred percent pears Bm A G From one hundred percent pears Bm A G From one hundred percent pears Bm A G Is there any disapointment in there?

Bm A G Well maybe Johnny just a bit Well the Galway Girl by Steve Earle G Was my favorite song G A But they sold it off to a cyder ad G D And my memories went wrong G D And I'm asking you son G D What's an artist to do?
