[Intro]

[Verse 1]
G                C               F
It was Christmas Eve babe,In the drunk tank
           C                       G
An old man said to me, I won't see another one
G           C                      F
And then he sang a song,A rare old mountain dew
             C                    G     C
I turned my face away,And dreamed about you


[Verse 2]
G        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
G        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 3]
            C           G                Am        F
They've got cars big as bars,They've got rivers of gold
        C                                                 G
But the wind goes right through you,It's no place for the old
         C             Am        C              F
When you first took my hand,On a cold Christmas Eve
    C                        G           C
You promised me,Broadway was waiting for me


[Verse 4]
         C                                          G
You were handsome,You were pretty Queen of New York City
         C             F             G              C
When the band finished playing,They howled out for more
  C                                           G
Sinatra was swinging,All the drunks they were singing
   C           F           G                  C
We kissed on a corner,Then danced through the night
 

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

[Verse 5]
         C                                       G
You're a bum You're a punk,You're an old slut on junk
      C            F         G            C
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
    C                                   G
You scumbag, you maggot,You cheap lousy faggot
      C              F           G            C
Happy Christmas your arse,I pray God it's our last
 

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

[Verse 6]
             C                          F
I could have been someone,Well so could anyone
            C                           G
You took my dreams from me,When I first found you
G           C                       F
I kept them with me babe,I put them with my own
              C                       F      G      C
Can't make it all alone,I've built my dreams around you


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