It was Christmas Eve babe In the drunk tank
D                       G/A       A            D
An old man said to me, won’t see another one  And then he sang a song
G                            D
The Rare Old Mountain Dew And I turned my face away
G        Asus4/E D   G/A
And dreamed about    you

G/A            D                      G
Got on a lucky one Came in eighteen to one

I’ve got a feeling This year’s for me and you

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

You were pretty
A
Queen of New York City
D             G
When the band finished playing
A              D
They howled out for more
D
Sinatra was swinging
A
All the drunks they were singing
D             G
We kissed on the corner

A                  D
Then danced through the night
G             Bm A
The boys of the NYPD choir
D               Bm
Were singing ‘Galway Bay’
D          G
And the bells were ringing
A                 D A Bm G  D A  D Bm D G   D A D
Out for Christmas day

D
You’re a bum
D
You’re a punk
A
You’re an old slut on junk
D            G         A
Living there almost dead on a drip
D
In that bed
D
You scum bag

You maggot
A
You cheap lousy faggot
D              G
Happy Christmas your arse
A
I pray God
D    A D
It’s our last

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