                 D
It was Christmas Eve babe
       G
In the drunk tank
           D
An old man said to me
          A
Won't see another one
            D 
And then he sang a song
             G
The rare old mountain dew
            D
I turned my face away 
            A     D   A 
And dreamed about you
         D
Got on a lucky one
        G
Came in eighteen to one
           D
I´ve got a feeling
                A
This year´s for me and you
         D
So Happy Christmas
           G
I love you baby
            D
I can see a better time
      G       A           D
Where all our dreams come true

D                    A
They got cars big as bars
         Bm        G          
They got rivers of gold
        D               G
But the wind goes right through you
        D             A
It´s no place for the old
         D             A
When you first took my hand 
     D              G 
On a cold Christmas Eve
    D
You promised me Broadway 
    A           D
was waiting for me
         D                 A                           
You were handsome you were pretty
      D           G
Queen of New York City 
         D             G    
When the band finished playing 
     A              D
They yelled out for more
D           A
Sinatra was swinging 
        D                G
All the drunks they were singing
   D           G
We kissed on a corner
     A                  D
Then danced through the night.

        G 
And the boys of the NYPD choir 
     D              Bm 
Were singing Galway Bay
        D          G       A
And the bells were ringing out 
              D
For Christmas Day


D, A, D, G
D, G, A, D

         D            A
You´re a bum you´re a punk
          D           A  
You´re an old slut on junk
      D            G
Lying there almost dead 
     A            D 
On a drip in that bed
    D           A           
You scumbag you maggot
    D           G
You cheap lousy faggot
      D              G              
Happy christmas your arse 
       A            D
I pray god it´s our last.

        G     
And the boys of the NYPD choir 
    D                    Bm
are still singing Galway Bay
        D          G        A
And the bells are ringing out
              D
For Christmas Day

D, G, D, A

             D
I could have been someone
              G
Well so could anyone
            D
You took my dreams from me
             A
When I first found you
            D
I kept them with me babe
           G
I put them with my own
           D
Can´t make it all alone
              G      A      D    A
I´ve built my dreams around you

        G     
And the boys of the NYPD choir 
    D                    Bm
are still singing Galway Bay
        D          G        A
And the bells are ringing out
              D
For Christmas Day
