Sam Hudson Chord Req: Fairytale of New York (14) RE: Chord Req ASAP!!: Fairytale of New York 20 Dec 99


I don't know how to format this properly, I'm afraid, and this is very sketchy, but if your friend has only got until Friday... hope it makes some kind of sense! The chords aren't at all difficult, it's all in the timing... transpose to different keys as required, of course.

~~~~~~~~~~ (G )It was Christmas Eve, babe, (C ) in the drunk tank The old man said (G) "son, I won't see an (D)other one," And then he (G) sang a song, The Rare Old (C) Mountain Dew And I turned my (G) eyes away, and thought ab(D)out you (G) ~~~~~~~

You were (G) handsome and (C pretty, Queen (G) of New York (C) City When the (G) band finished (Em) playing the (C) crowd (D) howled for more(G) Sinatra was (C) swinging, and the (G) crowd started (C) singing As we (G )kissed in the (Em) corner and (C) danced round (D) the (G) floor And the (C) boys from the New York (Am) Police choir were (G) singing Galway (Em) Bay And the (G) bells were (C) ringing (D) out for Christmas (G) Day.

~~~~~~~~

I've always found it to be the kind of song where commitment of delivery is more important than getting it too polished!
