How To Play

Intro: F C Dm7 G
 
         C
It was Christmas Eve babe 
         F
In the drunk tank 
       C             Dm       G
An old man said to me, won't see another one 
        C
And then he sang a song 
          F
'The Rare Old Mountain Dew' 
        C
I turned my face away 
    Dm        G      C
And dreamed about you 
 
     C
Got on a lucky one 
        F
Came in eighteen to one 
       C
I've got a feeling 
        Dm       G
This year's for you and me 
     C
So happy Christmas 
       F
I love you baby 
        C
I can see a better time 
     Dm      G         C     F C Dm7 G
When all our dreams come true

        C
They've got cars 
       G
Big as bars 
        C          F
They've got rivers of gold 
    C
But the wind goes 
    
Right through you
              G
It's no place for the old 
     C
When you first took my hand 
                 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 a corner 
     G            C
Then danced through the night 
 
    F
The boys of the NYPD choir 
     C             Am
Were singing 'Galway Bay' 
    C       F
And the bells were ringing 
 G          C
Out for Christmas Day 
 
 
Mellanspel: C G C F G C x2
 
 
     C
You're a bum 
 
You're a punk
              G
You're an old slut on junk 
      C           F         G
Lying there almost dead on a drip 
    C
In that bed 
 
    C
You scum bag 
 
You maggot
            G
You're cheap & your haggard 
      C             F
Happy Christmas your arse 
       G
I pray God 
     C
It's our last 
 
 
    F
The boys of the NYPD choir 
     C             Am
Were singing 'Galway Bay' 
    C       F
And the bells were ringing 
 G          C
Out for Christmas Day 
 
 
Mellanspel: C F C Dm7 G x2
 
 
         C
I could have been someone 
          F
Well 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 
                 G       C
I've built my dreams around you 
 
    F
The boys of the NYPD choir 
     C             Am
Were singing 'Galway Bay' 
    C       F
And the bells were ringing 
 G          C
Out for Christmas Day
