Capital Lights - His Favorite Christmas Story

(Standard tuning, pretty much the same rhythm the whole way though the song)


Chorus 1: 
     A                       D  A
He met her up in Delaware in 1937
	   F#m                       E
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
A                    D             A               F#m                   
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when he finally gained the 
            E           A
courage to ask her to dance

A    D  A  A E A    (4X)

Verse 1:
             A                             D              A
It was the night before Christmas, it was love at first sight
        F#m                 E                     
The carolers sang as they danced through the night
           A                         D        A
She was a small town girl, he was a traveling guy
      F#m                             E                A
He never caught her name before they said their goodbyes

A                            D           A
A couple years later he was out on the road
F#m                             E
Having Christmas dinner in a diner alone
         A                           D            A
When he saw a young waitress with a gleam in her eye
             F#m                             E            A
Her favorite day of the year she showed her spirits were high

         D                         A       
She said sir can you shed a little holiday cheer
F#m                                        E
A simple Christmas story was all she wanted to hear
              A                         D         A             F#m      
He looked prepared with a smile as he started to say here’s my favorite 
                         E		A
Christmas story about a girl with no name

Chorus  2:
            A                       D  A
He said I met her up in Delaware in 1937
	   F#m                       E
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
A                    D             A               F#m                   
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when I finally gained the 
            E           A
courage to ask her to dance

Verse 2:                                       
Every holiday season as he traveled he’d 
tell about his Christmas dance 
partner that he never knew well
He’d share his favorite story with the locals he met
He was called the Christmas story tellin traveling man
By age 53 he had done settled down
All the neighborhood kids liked to gather around
Just to listen to his stories about his life on the road
All he had now were these children he told

And every Christmas eve they showed up before dark
He’d tell them all the story but they knew it by heart
They could quote it word for word, he always told it the same
It was his favorite Christmas story called the girl with no name


Chorus  2

Verse  3:

Twenty years later as he took his last breath
It was on a cold Christmas morning on a hospital bed
The children were grown, he had nobody left
Except the little old nurse who was holding his hand
He said Ma’am can you share a little holiday cheer
A simple Christmas story was all he wanted to hear
But his eyes filled with tears at the words that she spoke
Because his favorite Christmas story was the one that she told


Chorus 3:
She said I met him up in Delaware in 1937
Though I never caught his name he was a traveling man
December 24th at a quarter till eleven
I’m so glad he got the courage to ask me to dance.
