The chords to Galway Girl are given here in the key of C Major. Steve Earle plays the song in D Major.
We’ve put the chords in C because they are easier to play and avoid the need for using a bar chord. Put a capo on the second fret if you want to play in D Major.
Mundy’s recorded version is in E Flat Major. His live performance is in E Major. If you put your capo on the third fret you will be playing in E Flat. On the fourth fret you will step up to E.
