[Verse]
                 C                F
It was Christmas Eve babe, in the drunktank
           C                      G
An old man said to me, won't see another one
            C                         F
And then he sang a song, the Rare Old Mountain Dew
            C                      G    C
I turned my face away and dreamed about you


[Verse]
         C                      F
Got on a lucky one, came in eighteen to one
           C                        G
I've got a feeling, this year's for me and you
         C                     F
So happy Christmas, I love you baby
            C                         G           C
I can see a better time, when all our dreams come true

[Verse]
            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


[Pre-Chorus]
         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


[Chorus]
    F             Am
The boys of the NYPD choir
     C               Am
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
        C
And the bells
             G                 C
were ringing out for Christmas day

[Pre-Chorus]
C
You're a bum

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

You scum bag

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



[Chorus]
    F             Am
The boys of the NYPD choir
     C               Am
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
        C
And the bells
             G                 C
were ringing out for Christmas day

[Verse]
             C                           F
I could have been someone, well so could anyone
            C                            G
You took my dreams from me, when I first found you
            C                        F
I kept them with me babe, I put them with my own
              C                               G      C
Can't make it all alone, I've built my dreams around you


[Chorus]
    F             Am
The boys of the NYPD choir
      C               Am
Still Singing 'Galway Bay'
        C\
And the bells
            (G)               C
are ringing out for Christmas day
