From the recording Christmas in Philly

Lyrics

Christmas in Philly
D G D A D

Verse 1

D G
It was Christmas in Philly, all the lights were lit up D A
We were dark and defeated, when the lighting bolt struck
D G
And I think of it always even when I don’t think
D A D
The process is happening, hey!, we’re on the brink

Chorus

A G D
Wait some more, forever it seems
G D A
The 76ers, they’re stuck in my dreams
D G
They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell
D A D
The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel

Verse 2

D G
The Flyers they tease you year after year
D A
But winning a Cup, oh, it seems so not near
D G
Rocky was a champ, and the Phillies were too
D A D
The Eagles are surging , they won’t make us blue

Chorus

A G D
Wait some more, forever it seems
G D A
The 76ers, they’re stuck in my dreams
D G
They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell
D A D
The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel

Instrumental D G D A D G D A D

Verse 3

D G
Soon the sun’ll be shinin’ on the Mummers parade
D A
Cheap booze on our breath, but I ain’t afraid
D G
Cuz it’s Christmas in Philly, and tonight I will dream
D A D
Of a party down Broad Street for a championship team

Chorus

A G D
Wait some more, forever it seems
G D A
The 76ers, they’re stuck in my dreams
D G
They remind me of the boathouses and the Liberty Bell
D A D
The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel
D A D
The bright lights are shinin’ on Carson and Joel
