CHRISTMAS
by Blues Traveller
from "A Very Special Christmas III"

C                  F             
Comes the time for Christmas
      G              Am           
And I really have to ask
   Am              Dm              
If this is feeling merry
         G              C        
How much longer must it last?

         C              F        
I wish a one horse open sleigh
           G        Am            
Would come carry me away
              Am               Dm  
But I've been waiting here all day
             G              C    
And one just hasn't come my way

    C                          F 
Now excuse me if I'm not being reverent
          G                       Am
But I was hoping for a miracle to hold me, wash me
Am              Dm                 
Save me from my righteous doubt 
     G                   C
as I watch helpless, and everybody sings

        C           F            
If it's Chanukah or Kwanza
G                       Am          
Solstice, harvest or December twenty-fifth
Am                Dm              
Peace on earth to everyone
    G            C               
And abundance to everyone you're with
   
C             F               
La ha da da da da da
      G                 Am         
Da da da da da da da da da da da
Am                Dm               
La da da da da da da da
      G                 C        
La da da da da da da da da
C          Bb69                               
Laha da da da da
C          Bb69                               
Laha da da da da
 
C                  F            
Comes the time for Christmas
           G                   Am 
And as you raise your Yuletide flask
                  Am               Dm
There's like this feeling that you carry
           G               C     
As if from every Christmas past
                   
        C               F
It's as if each year it grows
              G               Am                           
It's like you feel it in your toes
    Am             Dm                           
And on and on your carol goes
           G               C     
Harvesting love among your woes
                
          C                F
I want to buy into the benevolent
          G                       Am
And I was hoping for a miracle to hold me, wash me
Am                Dm               
Make me know what it's about
       G             C           
As the longing in me makes me want to sing
      
C       F                  
Noel or Navidad
G                     Am          
Season celebration or just the end of the year
Am                 Dm              
Christmas can mean anything
      G                C         
And I mean to keep its hope forever near

 
Repeat la's....

        Am                      G       Am
As if a cold and frozen soul is warm to love
             C                  
By loves own hand
            Am              G     
So goes the prayer if for a day peace on earth
F                G               
And good will to man
 
          C                         F
At twenty below the winter storm it billows
        G               Am      G       
But the fire is so warm inside
        Am                              Dm
And the children while nestled in their pillows
         G              C        
Dream of St. Nicholas's ride

            C                                F
And how the next day they'll get up and they will play
       G                       Am   G
In the still falling Christmas snow
    Am                          Dm         
And together we'll celebrate forever
      G                       C     G 
In defiance of the winds that blow

          C                          F
My god in heaven now I feel like I'm seven
        G                     C    G  
And the spirit calls to me as well
      Am                            Dm                              
As if Christmas had made the winter warmer
       G                      C    G  
Made a paradise from what was hell
                       
        Am              G               Am
As if a cold and frozen soul is warm to love
             C                  
By loves own hand
            Am              G     
So goes the prayer if for a day peace on earth
F                G                          
And good will to man.......
