2nd fret
Capo II

(C)All of the drunks
Dressed (Fmaj7)up like (C)Santa Claus
Ring Salvation (G)Army (C)bells
But the town square is quiet
The (Fmaj7)juke joints are (C)empty
Everyone’s buying
What (G)no one can (C)sell

(C)(Fmaj7)(C)(G)(C)

And the (Am)girl I (Fmaj7)loved once
(C)Came to me last night
In a dream with a secret to (G)tell
She (C)whispered close
Can’t you (Fmaj7)hear the (C)ocean?
As she leaned her ear
Against a (G)shotgun (C)shell

CHORUS
(Fmaj7)Dark was the night
Cold was the ground
I could (C)barely make out the (Fmaj7)song
Of the (C)Ghost Repeaters
Singing (Fmaj7)Halle(C)lujah
His truth is (G)marching (C)on

(C)(Fmaj7)(C)(G)(C)

(C)Willie Mae’s crying
At the (Fmaj7)toll booth to (C)heaven
With a bottle of gin
And a (G)gold-toothed (C)smile
Where the dreams pile up
All (Fmaj7)washed out and (C)broken
As thick as the stars
On the (G)Miracle (C)Mile

(C)(Fmaj7)(C)(G)(C)

But the (Am)movie is (Fmaj7)over
The (C)theater is empty
The credits are starting to (G)roll
And the (C)wages of sin
Don't ad(Fmaj7)just for in(C)flation
It’s a buyer’s market
When you (G)sell your (C)soul

CHORUS

(C)The plaza is dark
The (Fmaj7)picadors are (C)dreaming
Of blood in the alleys
And (G)rust on the (C)vines
They sandbag the bulls
And (Fmaj7)prop up the (C)matadors
It’s a sweetheart contract
They’re (G)taking their (C)time

(C)(Fmaj7)(C)(G)(C)

And (Am)all the ghost (Fmaj7)prisoners
Who (C)aren't in the ghost prisons
Don’t weep at the sound
Of your (G)name
They just (C)stare at the clouds
Of (Fmaj7)passenger (C)pigeons
Winging back home
To the (G)cities of the (C)plain

CHORUS

(C)The star up above
The 5th (Fmaj7)Avenue (C)Christmas tree
Is shining tonight
Through the (G)cold and the (C)rain
To light all the faces
In the (Fmaj7)live na(C)tivity
Down on the floor
Of the (G)stock ex(C)change

(Fmaj7)Dark is the night
Cold is the ground
The (C)armies march out to de(Fmaj7)fend
And the (C)Ghost Repeaters
Of the (Fmaj7)reve(C)lators
Are singing "Peace on Earth
And Good (G)Will to all (C)Men"

Agree, great tab. How are there not more tabs on here for his songs, especially some of his newer stuff?
Thanks.
