G   C G/B Am  D

 G                C             Am                   D
Amber called her uncle, said "We're up here for the holiday,
 G               C               Am              D              D
Jane and I were having Solstice, now we need a place to stay."
     G                  C               Am              D
And her Christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang Mary on a tree,
    G                    C               Am                D           D
He watched his son hang candy canes all made with red dye number three.
    G                       C              Am               D
He told his niece, "It's Christmas Eve, I know our life is not your style,"
     G                        C                Am                D           D
She said, "Christmas is like Solstice, and we miss you and it's been awhile,"

          G                C           Am             D
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
  G                C                 Am                 D
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
      G              C                Am                   D
And just before the meal was served, hands were held and prayers were said,
  G               C                 Am                  D          D
Sending hope for peace on earth  to all their gods and goddesses.

     G                   C                    Am                D
The food was great, the tree plugged in, the meal had gone without a hitch,
      G               C               Am                D              D
Till Timmy turned to Amber and said, "Is it true that you're a witch?"
     G                  C                  Am                D
His mom jumped up and said, "The pies are burning," and she hit the kitchen,
    G                 C                     Am                  D               D
And it was Jane who spoke, she said, "It's true, your cousin's not a Christian,"
     G                  C                    Am                 D
"But we love trees, we love the snow, the friends we have, the world we share,
     G               C                Am             D           D
And you find magic from your God, and we find magic everywhere."

          G                C          Am              D
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
  G                C                 Am                 D
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
      G               C                 Am               D
And where does magic come from? I think magic's in the learning,
        G                   C                    Am               D        D
'Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans only pumpkin pies are bur-ning.

      G              C                 Am                   D
When Amber tried to do the dishes, her aunt said, "Really, no, don't bother."
 G             C              Am                 D               D
Amber's uncle saw how Amber looked like Tim and like her father.
     G                 C               Am             D
He thought about his brother, how they hadn't spoken in a year,
     G                C                      Am                 D              D
He thought he'd call him up and say, "It's Christmas and your daughter's here."
      G                 C                 Am               D
He thought of fathers, sons and brothers, saw his own son tug his sleeve, saying,
  G          C                 Am                 D               D
"Can I be a Pagan?" Dad said, "We'll discuss it when they leave."

          G                C           Am             D
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
  G                C                 Am                 D
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
 G                 C                  Am                D
Lighting trees in darkness, learning new ways from the old, and
 G                C          Am                 D        D
Making sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold.

 G    C G/B  Am D   G

I love this song, and the chords seem correct for the most part. There is one chord that I don't think is right, though. I'm just starting out on the guitar, and don't know enough chords to figure out the right one, but I'm pretty sure the G/B in the intro should be a different chord.

I love this song, and for the most part the chords seem correct. There is one chord I'm unsure of, which is the G/B in the intro and outro. I recently started the guitar, so I don't know enough chords to figure it out, but I'm pretty sure it's something else.

Hi, I'll check this again, but I'm wondering how you were playing that chord. I would play the chords C, G/B, Am like this:

--0-3-0-------------
--1-3-1-------------
--0-0-2-------------
--2-0-2-------------
--3-2-0-------------
--------------------

So the G/B (G with B bass) could be either x20033 or x20003. I just want to make sure you were trying it the way it was intended...
