'Twas Christmas eve babe, in old Manhattan

              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.

          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.

             C          G                Am     F

They've got cars big as bars, they've got rivers of gold

        C                                                 

But the wind goes right through you, no place for the old.

           C                         G               F

When you first took my hand  on a cold Christmas eve

     C                           G           C

You promised me broadway was waiting for me.

        C                                              G  

You're handsome, you're 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, in the streets they were singing

    C            F           G                   C

We kissed on the corner and danced through the night.

     F             G             C                Am

The boys of the NYPD choir still singing 'Galway Bay'

              C         F        G                  C

And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day.

              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              G              C

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.

   F             G             C                Am

The boys of the NYPD choir still singing 'Galway Bay'

              C         F        G                  C

And the bells were ringing out for Christmas day.
