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.

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
Is your bread and butter salting with regrets?
Bm                     A                   G
Do you ever get the feeling you've been cheated...
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?
Bm              A          G            D
For the kind of money they ain' offering you!
G                D
And I drop the needle
G                  D
Give the record a whirl
Bm              A             G        D
But I just can't listen to the Galway Girl
A                     G (GGGGGGG!)
And Iggy Pop wants to be
                      D
Wants to be your dog!
