NO USE FOR A NAME -  Fairytale Of New York    S.McGowen J Finer
		
		E		A
It was Christmas Eve babe In the drunk tank
           E                     B		     	     E
An old man said to me, won't see another one  And then he sang a song
             A                            E
The Rare Old Mountain Dew And I turned my face away
            A	E
And dreamed about you

(FASTER)
	E		A
Got on a lucky one Came in eighteen to one
	E                      	      B      
I've got a feeling This year's for me and you
         E                   A
So happy Christmas I love you baby
            E                	 B          E
I can see a better time When all our dreams come true

SOLO #1
CHORDS E, B, E, B, E, A, B, E
 
            E5
They've got cars
       B5
Big as bars
            Db5        A5
They've got rivers of gold
        E5		 B5
But the wind goes right through you
        E5		B5
It's no place for the old
         E5		Db5
When you first took my hand
     E5             A5
On a cold Christmas Eve
E5    
You promised me
	     B5           E5
Broadway was waiting for me
         
You were handsome
	 B5
You were pretty
E5                A5
Queen of New York City
         E5            A5
When the band finished playing
     B5		    E5              
They howled out for more
E5	    B5
Sinatra was swinging
        E5               A5
All the drunks they were singing
   E5            A5
And we kissed on the corner
     B5                 E5
Then danced through the night

CHORUS
A5
The boys of the NYPD choir
     E5           D5  Db5    
Were singing 'Gal-way Bay'
        E(LOW)     A5
And the bells were ringing
B5 (STOP!)                 
Out for Christmas day

SOLO #2–OVER VERSE CHORDS (E, B, Db, A, E, B, E, B, E, Db, E, A, E, A, E)
VERSE 2

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Living there almost dead on a drip
In that bed

You scum bag
You maggot             
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God
It's our last

CHORUS
SOLO #3 PLAYED OVER E, A, E, B

E            
I could have been someone
	 A
So could anyone
            E
You took my dreams
                     B
From me when I first found you
            E
I kept them with me babe
           A
I put them with my own
              E
Can't make it all alone
              A      B      E (LOW)
I've built my dreams around you

CHORUS
OUTRO – OVER CHORUS
(VOCALS OVER LAST LINE OF CHOURS)
And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day

Nice tab here, It works with the solo's that I have from the other tabs and to me it sounds right.
Nice work ;-)
