Galway Girl by Ed Sheeran Lyrics

She played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"

I met her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
She shared a cigarette with me while her brother played the guitar
She asked me what does it mean, the Gaelic ink on your arm?
Said it was one of my friend's songs, do you want to drink on?
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
She got Arthur on the table with Johnny riding a shotgun
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance

You know, she played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"
With my pretty little Galway Girl
You're my pretty little Galway Girl

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

You know, she played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"
My pretty little Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl

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

About Galway Girl

"Galway Girl" is the (celtic, folk, pop, rap) 6th track by folk pop, hip hop, pop singer, song writer, actor, record producer, guitarist "Ed Sheeran" from Ed Sheeran's 3rd studio album ÷ (Deluxe). "Galway Girl" (2:50 min) song was recorded at 2016 and was released on March 3, 2017 through Atlantic Records UK and under ℗© 2017 Asylum Records UK & Warner Music Group company.

Galway Girl is written by Ed Sheeran, Niamh Dunne, Stan Graham, Eamon Murray, Liam Bailey, Amy Wadge, Foy Vance, Johnny McDaid, Damian McKee, Beoga, Steve Earle and is produced by Mike Elizondo.

The song Galway Girl is available in Digital Mp3 Download and Streaming formats on music online shopping store Apple Music/iTunes, Amazon Music & on online music streaming site Spotify.

On this song Sheeran is alluding to Niamh Dunne, an individual from the Irish folk music group Beoga, who worked together with Sheeran on this track. Dunne fits the portrayal of a “Galway Girl,” authored by Steve Earle.

When approached about being the motivation for the song, Dunne stated:

I dunno if you could go that far really, Christ almighty and I a Limerick woman!

Ed is most likely utilizing his masterful permit, since Dunne is hitched to an Irish man, however here she experienced passionate feelings for an English man.

On Steve Earle‘s “The Galway Girl” and on this song, Both the girl are dark haired, blue-looked at wonders, and both cast their spell over their particular craftsmen. This may persuade that in case you’re a male performer and you come to Galway, Ireland to perform and to study Irish music, and you happen to meet a flawless youthful Irish girl with dark hair and blue eyes, you are either going to begin to look all starry eyed at or you’ve met your dream.

The “Galway Girl” who motivated ‒ and co-composed ‒ this track is supposedly Niamh Dunne, a fiddler from Limerick Ireland, somewhat south of Galway, yet who does in any case meet the depiction of a Galway Girl, having dark hair and blue eyes.
