[Intro]
Em  D  G   Em   D   Em

[Verse 1]
(Spoken by a street urchin)
              Am                                                   Em
Joyful mystery, the birth of our Lord. This night our Lady and St. Joseph was
                Bm              Am
going up to get registered and, and they were going down the road and they
                  Em            C            D
met this man and, and he said, "Have you any room?" And he said, "No, but
           G                    D/F#    G                   C
there's an old stable over there that I owned, if yous want to go into it."
              D        Em                          Am                 Bm
And they went over and the lord came down from the heaven at twelve o'clock
             C                    D
and loads of beautiful angels was with them, and when they were walkin'...

[Verse 2]
  Em       D/F#        G     D
I walk the streets of Dublin town
     Em       C     D
It's eighteen forty-two
     Em      D/F#       G      D
It's snowing on this Christmas Eve
           Em          C      Em
Think I'll beg another bob or two
     Am
I'll huddle in this doorway here
     Em             Bm
'Til someone comes along
Am
If the lamp lighter comes real soon
Em            C         D
Maybe I'll go home with him
G                  D/F#        G       C      D
Maybe I can find a place I can call my home
Em                 Am         Bm      C
Maybe I can find a home I can call my own

[Verse 3]
(Spoken by a street urchin)
            D           C                  D                          C
These three wise kings, and, and they were all in different countries. And
                    D              C                           D
they always used to look up at the sky and they looked up this night and saw
     C                        D                       C
this beautiful star up in the sky. And when they were going they all meeted
    D                                C                              D
together and whe.., you have.., they had to pass King Herod's place, not that
            C                       D                   C
we much care for him. And they went in and, and he said, "And where yous
     D
goin' with yer best stitches on ye?"

[Verse 4]
    Em            D/F#    G         D
The horses on the cobbled stones go by
           Em       C        D
Think I'll get one, one fine day
    Em     D/F#     G    D
And ride into the countryside
    Em   C    Em
And very far away
    Am
But now as the daylight disappears
  Em                   Bm
I best find a place to sleep
Am
Think I'll slip into the bell-tower
       Em          C        D
In the church just down the street
G                  D/F#        G       C      D
Maybe I can find a place I can call my home
Em                 Am         Bm      C
Maybe I can find a home I can call my own

[Verse 5]
(Spoken by a street urchin)
              D                      C                                   D
And they said, "Did you not hear the news?" and say he says, "What news?" He
                               C                  D
says, "This day the saviour is born." And he says to them, "When you find him,
     C                         D                        C
come back and tell me 'cause I want to go and adore him too." And he was only
              D                         C                    D
coddin' them. He wanted to kill him and when they were going, they stopped
         C                 D                   C                    D
and they said, "Surely not this old stable that our king is born in. We were
          C           D
expecting a palace."

[Verse 6]
Em           D/F#     G        D
Maybe on the way I'll find the dog
  Em      C     D
I saw the other night
    Em            D/F#     G      D
And tuck him underneath my jacket so
      Em        C           Em
We'll stay warm through the night
    Am
And as we lie in the bell-tower high
    Em               Bm
And dream of days to come
    Am
The bells o'er head will call the hours
     Em          C      D
Some day we will find a home
G                  D/F#        G       C      D
Maybe I can find a place I can call my home
Em                 Am         Bm      C     D
Maybe I can find a home I can call my own
G                  D/F#        G       C      D
Maybe I can find a place I can call my home
Em                 Am         Bm      C     D
Maybe I can find a home I can call my own

[Verse 7]
(Spoken by a street urchin)
                              C                             D
There was these shepherds and shepherds are fellas that mind the foals and
     C              D                    C                        D
cows and sheeps and little lambs and all and, um, they hears this beautiful
               C            D    N.C.
music up in da sky and they were wondering what was so fun. An angel

ye, and he said, "The saviour is born. If yous want to go see him, follow
