Capo 3


[Intro]
G  D/F#   A/D   D


[Verse 1]
         G       D/F#        A        D
Well I walked to town in the pouring rain
        G            A/D       D
Paid my fare and I rode that train
        G       A        D
To the station under the avenue
         G/D                  D
Hit the air at the stroke of noon
        G             D/F#     A        D
At the cross streets where I staked my claim
     G       G/D          A       D
I played in tune with the winter rain
    G      A          D
Collecting dimes and dollar bills
          G      G/D      A         D
While the noisy traffic played the fills


[Refrain]
         G        D/F#        A
And its Christmas time in the city
         G        D/F#        A
When the air is filled with cheer
         G        D/F#        A           D       G
And the storefronts look this pretty only once a year

G  D/F#   A/D   D


[Verse 2]
        G         D/F#            A        D
Well the vendors huddled and the taxis honked
       G        A/D                     D
As I played for change beneath the neon clock
        G          A               D
I was dressed up looking like a Christmas tree
        G/D                  D
Blinking down on that busy street
        G             D/F#          A        D
When the crowd thinned out and the rain had quit
    G       G/D     A       D
And my fingers felt cold and stiff
    G      A          D
I took their money and I closed my case
         G      G/D      A         D
And I headed back towards home again


[Refrain]
         G        D/F#        A
And its Christmas time in the city
         G        D/F#        A
When the air is filled with cheer
         G        D/F#        A           D       G
And the storefronts look this pretty only once a year

    D/F#   A/D   D


[verse 3]
        G       D/F#        A        D
As I walked back to the subway stairs
       G            A/D       D
I had twenty eight dollars in change for fare
       G             A              D
There was an old bag lady with an outstretched hand
       G/D                  D
And a small Salvation Army band
        G       D/F#      A        D
Playing Angels We Have Heard on High
   G       G/D          A       D
The First Noel and O Holy Night
   G      A          D
I folded up one dollar bill
        G       D/F#   A       D       
And I tucked it down into the till


[Refrain]
         G        D/F#        A
And its Christmas time in the city
         G        D/F#        A
When the air is filled with cheer
         G        D/F#        A           D       G
And the storefronts look this pretty only once a year

G  D/F#   A/D   D


[Refrain]
         G        D/F#        A
And its Christmas time in the city
         G        D/F#        A
When the air is filled with cheer
         G        D/F#        A           D       G
And the storefronts look this pretty only once a year

G  D/F#   A/D   D


[Outro]
        G        D/F#        A     D
And its Christmas time in the city
