Verse:
Dsus2                 G6      D                  (same chords for each line)
They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth,
But instead it just kept on raining,
A veil of tears for the Virgin birth.

Chorus:
C  G           D
I remember one Christmas morning,
C            G           D
The Winter's light and a distant choir,
         D        A             G              D
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell,
    D            G6         Dsus2
And eyes full of tinsel and fire.

Dsus2          G6        D
They sold me A dream of Christmas,
They sold me A silent night,
They told me A fairy story,
'Til I believed in the Israelite.

Chorus:
C  G           D
I remember one Christmas morning,
C            G           D
The Winter's light and a distant choir,
         D        A             G              D
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell,
    D            G6         Dsus2
And eyes full of tinsel and fire.

Dsus2        G6       D
I wish you A hopeful Christmas,
I wish you A brave New Year,
All anguish, pain and sadness,
Leave your heart and let your road be clear.

Dsus2                 G6      D
They said there'd be snow at Christmas,
They said there'd be peace on earth,
D            A           G6        D
Hallelujah! Noel!, be it Heaven or Hell,
     D           G6   Dsus2
The Christmas we get, we deserve.

Might not be correct bit unsure on bits lead riff goes something like:

e-------------------------------------------
b---3-2-2-3------------323-----------3-23---
g--2---4---4-2-4-2-0-22---2-2-0-0-2-4----4-2  etc. carries on a bit longer
d------------------------------2------------  avnt got round to tabbing yet!
a-------------------------------------------  Like i said a bit rough but
E-------------------------------------------  someone who is better on 
                                              Guitar than me (Nearly Every1)
                                              Can tab it a bit better!

Sorry, Brian, but that's a very poor effort - you've clearly started from my original version, and not fixed many of the mistakes at all. You've not done very well with the Troika Theme, either.

(You should find that my version now contains the complete theme plus the backing chords, as well as corrections to the chords for the verses.)

He's actually got the intro right, except all those notes on the low e should be on the B string.

I've used both the
tabs and it seems good to me
