The Pogues - FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK    S.McGowen J Finer


Asus4/E D G/D                  D               G
             It was Christmas Eve babe In the drunk tank
          D                      G/A       A            D
An old man said to me, won't see another one And then he sang a song
             G                            D
The Rare Old Mountain Dew And I turned my face away
    G       Asus4/E D   G/A
And dreamed about    you

G/A            D                      G
       Got on a lucky one Came in eighteen to one
          D                      G/A       A
I've got a feeling This year's for me and you
         D                   G
So happy Christmas I love you baby
            D                G       Asus4/E    D
I can see a better time When all our dreams come true

G/D D G/D Asus4          /faster now/    D A D G A D

They've got cars
Big as bars
            Bm       G
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
         D             Bm
When you first took my hand
    D             G
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
             A          D
Broadway was waiting for me
You were handsome

You were pretty
Queen of New York City
         D             G
When the band finished playing
    A             D
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging
All the drunks they were singing
   D             G
We kissed on the corner
    A                  D
Then danced through the night
    G             Bm A
The boys of the NYPD choir
    D               Bm
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
       D          G
And the bells were ringing
A                D A Bm G D A D Bm D G   D A D
Out for Christmas day

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
       D            G         A
Living there almost dead on a drip
In that bed
You scum bag

You maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
      D             G
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God
         D    A D
It's our last

A            D
I could have been someone
So could anyone
You took my dreams
From me when I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
             G      A      D
I've built my dreams around you
