The Christmas Song – Lyrics with Chords

C         Dm6            Em             Am
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,

C       C6         C7      Fmaj       E7
Jack Frost nipping on your nose, 

Am       Fm           C         B7
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, 

    Emaj7         Bb      G       G7         C
And folks dressed up like Eskimos, everybody knows
C  Dm6            Em        Am
A turkey and some mistletoe, 

C        C6      C7     Fmaj7   E7
Help to make the season bright. 

Am    Fm             C           B7
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

     Em      Am      Dm6 G  C
Will find it hard to sleep tonight. 
C7             Gm    C        F Am7
They know that Santa's on his way; 

            Gm               C              F   Am7
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. 

          Fm           Bb            Eb B
And every mother's child is going to spy, 

          D7              Fm6         G      G7
To see if reindeer really know how to fly. 
    C      Dm6           Em                  Am
And so I'm offering this simple phrase, 

      C        C6      C7  F        E7
To kids from one to ninety-two, 

Am                Fm        C           B7
Although its been said many times, many ways, 

      E7 Fm G   Dm6 C
Merry Christmas to you
