Fairytale of New York  Christy Moore



[G] It was Christmas E[C]ve, babe, in the [F]drunk tank
An old man [C]said, "Son, I won't see [G]another one"
And then he [C]sang a song, a rare old [F]mountain tune
I turned my [C]eyes away, and I thought [G]about [C]you[G]
I got on a lucky one, came in at 18/1
I've got a feeling this year's for me and you
So Happy Christmas, I love you baby
There's going to be good times
When all our dreams come true.
[C]They've got cars big as bars
They've got ri[F]vers of g[C]old
[C]But the wind blows right through you
It's no place for the [G]old
When I f[C]irst took your hand on a c[F]old Christmas E[C]ve
I told you that Broadway was [G]waiting for [C]me.
You were [C]handsome and pretty, queen of New York [G]city
When the b[C]and finished pl[F]aying, the c[G]rowd howled for [C]more
Sina[C]tra was swinging, and the crowd they were si[G]nging
We ki[C]ssed on the c[F]orner and da[G]nced round the f[C]loor.
CHORUS
An[F]d the boys from the New York police choir were s[C]ingin' Galway B[Am]ay
And the [C]bells were [F]ringin' o[G]ut on Christmas D[C]ay
I could have been someone and so could anyone
I took my dreams from you when I first met you
I kept them with me, babe, and put them with my own
I can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you.
You're a [C]bum you're a punk you're an [G]aul hoor on [F]junk
Lyin' [C]there on the [F]drip nearly [G]dead in the [C]bed
You scum[C]bag you maggot you [G]cheap lousy [F]faggot
Happy [C]Christmas me [F]arse, I would [G]rather be [C]dead...
CHORUS
(Extra verse from the live version)
I love you baby
I've got a feeling this year's for me and you
So Happy Christmas, I love you baby
There's going to be good times
When all our dreams come true.
