It was Christmas Eve babe, In the drunktank
D D G/A G/A A A D D
An old man said to me, won't see another one And then he sang a song
G G D D
The Rare Old Mountain Dew And I turned my face away
G G Asus4/E Asus4/E D D G/A G/A
And dreamed about you

G/A G/A D D G G
Got on a lucky one Came in eighteen to one
D D G/A G/A A A
I've got a feeling This year's for me and you
D D G G
So happy Christmas, I love you baby
D D G G Asus4/E Asus4/E D D
I can see a better time When all our dreams come true

D D
They've got cars
A A
Big as bars
Bm Bm G G
They've got rivers of gold
D D
But the wind goes right through you
A A
It's no place for the old
D D Bm Bm
When you first took my hand
D D G G
On a cold Christmas Eve
D D
You promised me
A A D D
Broadway was waiting for me
D D
You were handsome

You were pretty
A A
Queen of New York City
D D G G
When the band finished playing
A A D D
They howled out for more
D D
Sinatra was swinging
A A
All the drunks they were singing
D D G G
We kissed on the corner
A A D D
Then danced through the night
G G Bm Bm A A
The boys of the NYPD choir
D D Bm Bm
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
D D G G
And the bells were ringing
A A D D A A Bm Bm G G D D A A D D Bm Bm D D G G D D A A D D
Out for Christmas day

D D
You're a bum
D D
You're a punk
A A
You're an old slut on junk
D D G G A A
Living there almost dead on a drip
D D
In that bed
D D
You scum bag

You maggot
A A
You cheap lousy faggot
D D G G
Happy Christmas your arse
A A
I pray God
D D A A D D
It's our last

G G Bm Bm A A
The boys of the NYPD choir
D D Bm Bm
Still singing `Galway Bay`
D D G G
And the bells are ringing
A A D D
Out for Christmas Day


A A D D
I could have been someone
G G
Well, So could anyone
D D
You took my dreams
A A
From me when I first found you
D D
I kept them with me babe
G G
I put them with my own
D D
Can't make it all alone
G G A A D D
I've built my dreams around you


The boys of the NYPD choir

Still Singing `Galway Bay`

And the bells are ringing

Out for Christmas Day
