Intro: G -> D -> A -> D -> A
It was Christmas [D]Eve babe
In the d[G]runk tank
An old man s[D]aid to me,
"Won't see [A]another one"
And then he s[D]ang a song
'The Rare Old M[G]ountain Dew'
I turned my f[D]ace away
And dreamed a[A]bout [D]you[A]
Got on a l[D]ucky one
Came in eigh[G]teen to one
I had a [D]feeling
That year was f[A]or me and you
Said Happy C[D]hristmas
I love you [G]baby
I can see a b[D]etter time
When all[G] our dr[A]eams come [D]true

G, D(hammer on), A, D, A, Bm, G,
D, A, D, A, D, G, D, A, D

[D]They've got cars big as b[A]ars
They've got ri[Bm]vers of g[G]old
But the[D] wind blows right through you
It's no place for the [A]old
When I [D]first took your [A]hand
All your [D]fingers were [G]blue
But I p[D]romised you
Broadway was w[A]aiting for y[D]ou
I was handsome, you were p[A]retty
Queen [D]of New York [A]City
When the b[D]and finished p[G]laying
They h[A]owled out for m[D]ore
Sinatra was s[A]winging,
All the d[D]runks they were s[A]inging
We k[D]issed on a c[G]orner
Then d[A]anced through the n[D]ight
The[G] boys of the NYPD choir
Were s[D]inging "Galway [Bm]Bay"
And the b[D]ells were r[G]inging out[A]
For Christmas da[D]y

D, A, D, G, D, G, A, D

[D]The apartment was c[A]luttered
And it s[D]melled like the g[A]utter
Where My s[D]ad broken p[G]romises
l[A]ay with the t[D]rash
Every cold dreary n[A]ight
We'd end [D]up in a f[G]ight
And I'd p[D]ray as you'd y[G]ell
That a t[A]rain'd rattle p[D]ast
And the [G]boys of the NYPD choir
still s[D]inging "Galway [Bm]Bay"
And the b[D]ells were r[G]inging out[A]
For Christmas day[D]

D, G, D, A

I could have b[D]een someone
Said so could a[G]nyone
That I took your d[D]reams from you
When you first f[A]ound me
I kept them w[D]ith me babe
I put them w[G]ith my own
Can't make it[D] all alone
I've built my [G]dreams [A]around [D]you [A]
Its Christmas[D] Eve again
In the d[G]runk tank
I'm an o[D]ld man now
I won't see a[A]nother one
So I'll s[D]ing a song
And sleep when [G]I am through
Dream of a[D]nother life
Where a[G]ll our d[A]reams came t[D]rue.
