Capo 3

Intro (x2): C G D Am7 C G D

Verse 1:
C    G       D       Am7      C  G          D
Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born
    C         G       D         Am7      C    G        D
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn
        C       G         D         Am7      C
We were so lost, on earth, no peace, no worth
   G        D
No way to escape
C       G        D         Am7       C       G
In fear, no faith, no hope, no grace, and no light
    D (let it ring)           C        G D Am7 C G D     
But that was the night before Christmas

Verse 2:
C        G           D         Am7   
Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet
C       G            D
Praying godspeed the dawn
C           G        D       Am7     
She looks to her man, holding her hand
C    G          D
They wonder how long
       C          G        D       Am7        C    G        D
And the shepherds, wise men come to find them, and bow to a king
C       G     D       Am7      C   G         D (let it ring)
One star above shining on love, so bright it lit up the night before
C        G D 
Christmas

Chorus 1:
        C G          D Am7 C         G           D
And the world didn't know, mercy was meek and so mild
        C G          D Am7     C            G         D
And the world didn't know that truth was as pure as a child
                 C        G D Am7
The night before Christmas
                 C        G D
The night before Christmas

Interlude: C G D Am7 C G D

Chorus 2:
        C G          D Am7 C              G            D
And the world didn't know, redemption was sweet and so strong
        C G          D Am7   C          G         D
And the world didn't know salvation was writing a song
                 C        G D Am7
The night before Christmas
                 C        G D
The night before Christmas  
                 C        G D Am7 C G D
The night before Christmas

Outro:
C    G       D       Am        C  G         D (let it ring)
Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born

This tab is much easier than ver 2 and this one is more accurate. Plus it sounds 
better with the track. God Bless!

This is exactly what he plays (with some hammer-ons thrown in) in his acoustic version. Thanks!
