This is my clear favorite of the arrangements for this song on UG. Here's why - I usually play in a situation where it is one guitar accompanying a vocalist. (and occasionally a piano) This arrangement doesn't simplify away the chords that make the song distinctive, but it doesn't step on the vocalist either. For example, on the word "count" in the second line there is an F in the melody - so you don't need to play an E7(b9) if someone is singing, and it would probably just sound muddy if you did.

This could be played exactly as it is here, but you can also do an instrumental solo over the verse chords, then end with this slight variation to jazz it up slightly with some extended chords and a basic tritone substitution on the final cadence.

I’ll be home for Christmas,

If only in… my… dreams.
