C FIt was Christmas Eve babe in the drunk tank
C GAn old man said to me, won't see another one
C FAnd then he sang a song The Rare Old Mountain Dew
C G C GI turned my face away and dreamed about you.
Got on a lucky one came in eighteen to one I've got a feeling this year's for me and you So happy Christmas, I love you baby There's gonna be some goodtime when all our dreams come true
C FThey've got cars big as bars, they've got rivers of gold
C GBut the wind goes right through you; it's no place for the old
C GWhen you first took my hand, on a cold Christmas Eve
C F G CYou promised me Broadway was waiting for me.
CYou were handsome you were pretty, queen of New York City
C F G CWhen the band finished playing they howled out for more
CSinatra was swinging, all the drunks they were singing
C F G CWe kissed on a corner then danced through the night.
Chorus:
F C AThe boys of the NYPD choir were singing "Galway Bay"
C F G CAnd the bells were ringing out for Christmas day
C FI could have been someone, well so could anyone
C GYou took my dreams from me when I first found you
C FI kept them with me babe; I put them with my own
C G C GCan't make it all alone, I've built my dreams around you
Chorus:
F C AThe boys of the NYPD choir were singing "Galway Bay"
C F G CAnd the bells were ringing out for Christmas day
C FYou're a bum, you're a punk, you're an old slut on junk
C GLying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
CYou scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot
C F G CHappy Christmas my arse, I'd rather be dead.
Last chorus:
F C AThe boys of the NYPD choir were singing "Galway Bay"
C F G CAnd the bells were ringing out for Christmas day
C FSo happy Christmas, I love you baby
