Christmas Song

Tabbed by : Todd Iceton, idmbi@aol.com

   G A Dm
||-3-5-7-||
||-3-5-7-||
||-4-6-7-||
||-5-7-9-||
||-5-7-9-||
||-3-5-7-||

This is the main riff...
||-------------------||
||-------------------||
||-7---7-----------5-||
||-7^9-7-0-7---7---7-||
||---------4^5-4-0---||
||-------------------||

The chorus ("shower him with love, love love"):

G,A,Dm,Dm

Bridge ("When Jesus Christ was nailed to his tree"):

A,Dm,G,A

On the chorus and bridge, for each chord, you want to strum down, then get
a quick one up in, then mute it with your palm. If you like DaveMatthewsBand,
go get Remember Two Things, their first album...it's one of the best. I'm not
going to give you the location of everything with the lyrics (which I know
are correct, because I checked them with the CD booklet), go get the CD and
figure it out...

Lyrics
*----*
She was his girl; he was her boyfriend
Soon to be his wife; take him as her husband
A surprise on the way, anyday, anyday
One healthy little giggling dribbling baby boy
The wise men came three made their way
to shower him with love
while he lay in the hay
Shower him with love love love
love love love
love love is all around

Not very much of his childhood was known
Kept his mother Mary worried
always out on his own
He met another Mary for a reasonable fee, less than
reputable was known to be

His heart was full of love love love
love love love
love love is all around
When Jesus Christ was nailed to his tree,
He said "Oh Daddy-o I can see how it all soon will be
I came to shed a little light on this darkening scene
Instead I fear I spill the blood of my children all around."

The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around.
So the story goes - so I'm told
the people he knew were
less than golden hearted
Gamblers and robbers
Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers
Like you and me

Rumours insisted he soon would be
for his deviations
taken into custody by the authorities
less informed than he.
Drinkers and jokers, all soul searchers
Searching for love love love
love love love
love love is all around

Preparations were made
for his celebration day
He said "Eat this bread and think of it as me,
drink this wine and dream it will be
the blood of our children all around"
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around
The blood of our children all around

Father up above, why in all this anger have you filled
me up with love
Fill me love love love
love love love
love love
and the blood of our children all around.

Title: Christmas Song
Artist: The Dave Matthews Band
Album: Remember Two Things


This is a fairly simple song to play.  There are two main parts, the riff and
the chord strumming.  You should be able to get the timing if you listen to
the CD a few times.

This is the main riff which is repeated over and over throughout the song:

E-----------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------
G----7----7----7--------------------------------     
D----5-\--4----0---7----7----7----5-------------
A--------------------5-\--4----0----2-----------
E-----------------------------------------------

There only appears to be two chords in the entire song:  A and D.  Listening
to the CD will help you play the strumming part, because it sounds like there
is no particular rhythm or order in which the chords are played. 

                  A                 D
E-----------------0-----------------2----------
B-----------------2-----------------3----------
G-----------------2-----------------2----------
D-----------------2-----------------0----------
A-----------------0-----------------0----------
E----------------------------------------------

Agreed with poster 2 - It's a Bm instead of Dm. Thanks for posting this though!

I want to post or [tab]
