Gsus4/D C F/C                  C               F
              It was Christmas Eve babe In the drunk tank
           C                       F/G       G            C
An old man said to me, won't see another one  And then he sang a song
             F                            C
The Rare Old Mountain Dew And I turned my face away
    F        Gsus4/D C   F/G
And dreamed about    you

  F/G            C                      F
        Got on a lucky one Came in eighteen to one
           C                       F/G        G
I've got a feeling This year's for me and you
         C                    F
So happy Christmas I love you baby
            C                F        Gsus4/D    C
I can see a better time When all our dreams come true

            C
They've got cars
       G
Big as bars
            Am        F
They've got rivers of gold
        C
But the wind goes right through you
                      G
It's no place for the old
         C             Am
When you first took my hand
     C              F
On a cold Christmas Eve
    C
You promised me
             G           C
Broadway was waiting for me
         C
You were handsome

You were pretty
                  G
Queen of New York City
         C             F
When the band finished playing
     G              C
They howled out for more
C
Sinatra was swinging
                         G
All the drunks they were singing
   C             F
We kissed on the corner
     G                  C
Then danced through the night
    F             Am G
The boys of the NYPD choir
     C               Am
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
        C          F
And the bells were ringing
G                 C G Am F  C G  C Am C F   C G C
Out for Christmas day

C
You're a bum
         C
You're a punk
                      G
You're an old slut on junk
       C            F         G
Living there almost dead on a drip
        C
In that bed
    C
You scum bag

You maggot
                G
You cheap lousy faggot
      C              F
Happy Christmas your arse
       G
I pray God
         C    G C
It's our last

G            C
I could have been someone
         F
So could anyone
            C
You took my dreams
                     G
From me when I first found you
            C
I kept them with me babe
           F
I put them with my own
              C
Can't make it all alone
              F      G      C
I've built my dreams around you
