Fairytale of New York Bass TAB
By Conor Tobin

'Fairytale of New York'
Words and Music by Shane McGowan and Jem Finer
Performed by The Pogues

Bass enters after piano intro and two verses, at about 1:23, and plays 'til the end of the song.
Tab should be pretty much 100% correct.
I've also added the chords above to make it easier to read, and a few lines for reference..
