About this tab version
Correct chords, all the solos. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, we won't see another one
And then he sang a song
A rare old mountain tune
I turned my face away
             B5   E5 (hold)
And dreamed about you

[Pre-verse]
         E5
Got on a lucky one
           A5
Came in eighteen to one
           E5
I've got a feeling
                B5
This year's for me and you
          E5
So happy Christmas
           A5
I love you baby
           E5
I can see a better time
             B5     E5
When all our dreams come true

Rhythm: E5 B5 E5 A5 E5 A5 B5 A5

[Verse 1]
            E5                B5
They've got cars, they've got bars
            C#5       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            C#5
When you first took my hand
        E5             A5
On that cold Christmas Eve
    E5
You promised me
              B5         E5
Broadway was waiting for me

[Verse 2]
         E5
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 1]
        A5
And the boys of the NYPD choir
     E5              C#5
Were singing "Galway Bay"
        E5         A5      B5
And the bells were ringing out
              E5
For Christmas day

[Verse 3]
         E5
You're a bum
         B5
You're a punk
          E5          A5
You're an old slut on junk
      E5           A5        B5           E5
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
     E5          B5
You scumbag, you maggot
     E5         A5
You cheap lousy faggot
      E5             A5
Happy Christmas your arse
       B5           E5
I pray God it's our last

[Chorus 2]
        A5
And the boys of the NYPD choir
     E5              C#5
Were singing "Galway Bay"
        E5         A5      B5
And the bells were ringing out
              E5
For Christmas day

[Bridge]
             E5
I could have been someone
              A5
But so could anyone
            E5
You took my dreams from me
             B5
When I first found you
            E5
I kept them with me babe
           A5
I put them with my own
              E5
Can't make it all alone
                      B5    E5
I've built my dreams around you

[Chorus 3]
        A5
And the boys of the NYPD choir
      E5              C#5
Still singing "Galway Bay"
        E5        A5      B5
And the bells are ringing out
              E5
For Christmas day
