Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

A few scrunchy chords to spice it up a bit because a lot of the versions were a 
bit dull (no offence of course). Diagrams at bottom

At the end of verse 2: the C7 works better with a Bb bass. Same with the other C7s (which are functionally equivalent).

Similarly, the Am7(b5) in the bridge works better with an Eb bass (walks the bass down by semitones from F). The C there (at "yore") should probably be a Cmaj7, as in other transcriptions, to walk down to the Am7 immediately following.

Great transcription: caught some subtle stuff from the original(s).
