Capo 1

Intro: B--D#m-E-F#(hold), C#m--B, B---


Verse 1:
B
Bah, humbug! No, that's too strong
Cause it is my favorite holiday
    E
But all this year's been a busy blur
      A
Don't think I have the energy
   B
To add to my already mad rush
Just cause it's this the season
    E
The perfect gift for me would be
   A
Completions and connections left from
B
Last year ski shop
Encounter most interesting
E
Had his number but never the time
A
Most of 81 passed along those lines
   B
So deck those halls, trim those trees
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer
E
I just need to catch my breath
C#m                       B---
Christmas by myself this year


Verse 2:
B
Calendar picture, frozen landscape
Chilled this room for twenty-four days
E
Evergreens, sparkling snow
A
Get this winter over with
             B
Flashback to springtime, saw him again,
Would've been good to go for lunch
E
Couldn't agree when we were both free
   A
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch
B
Didn't, of course, til summertime
Out to the beach to his boat 
could I join him?
E
No, this time it was me
A
Sunburn in the third degree
B
Now the calendar's just one page
And, of course, I am excited
  E
Tonight's the night
but I've set my mind
       C#m                B--
Not to do too much about it


Breakdown: E--A--E-A-B x3, E--A--E--A-G#m-F#m-E/G#


Chorus:
B
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year


Verse 3:
B
Hardly dashing through the snow
Cause I bundled up too tight
E
Last minute have-to-do's
      A
A few cards a few calls
           B
Cause it's r-s-v-p
No thanks, no party lights
     E
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax
A
Turned down all of my invites
B
Last fall I had a night to myself
Same guy called, halloween party
E
Waited all night for him to show
A
This time his car wouldn't go
   B
Forget it it's cold it's getting late
Trudge on home to celebrate
     E
In a quiet way, unwind
C#m                         B--
Doing Christmas right this time


Verse 4:
B
A&P has its provided me
With the world's smallest turkey
  E
Already in the oven, nice and hot
   A
Oh damn! Guess what I forgot?
   B
So on with the boots
back out in the snow
To the only all-night grocery
     E
When what to my wondering 
eyes should appear
       A
In the line is that guy 
I've been chasing all year
      S
"I'm spending this one alone," he said.
"Need a break; this year's been crazy."
  E
I said, "Me too, but why are you?
         A
You mean you forgot cranberries too?"
     B
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
Caught on to what was happening
     E
That Christmas magic's brought this tale
     C#m           B--
To a very happy ending
