But how would you know this?" The child said, "I've noticed, If one could be home, They'd be already there." F C Then the bartender came out G C From behind the bar F C In all of his life G C He was never that far F C And he did something else G C That he thought no one saw F C And he took all the cash G C From the register drawer G* C Then he followed the child F C To the girl across the street G* C And we watched from the bar F C As they started to speak F C Then he called for a cab G* C And he said, "J.F.K." F C Put the girl in the cab G* C Then the cab drove away F C And we saw in his hands G* C That the cash was all gone F C G* From the light that she had wished upon If you want to arrange it This world you can change it If we could somehow make this Christmas thing last By helping a neighbor Or even a stranger And to know who needs help You need only just ask Then he looked for the child The child wasn't there Just the wind and the snow Waltzing dreams through the air And he walked back inside Somehow different I think For the rest of the night No one paid for a drink And the cynics will say That some neighborhood kid Wondered in on some bums In the world where they hid But they werent there So they couldnt see By an old neon star On that night Christmas Eve When the snow it was falling The neon was calling In case you should wonder In case you should care Why we on our own Never went home On that night of all nights We were already there
