You can sub the Oh/Home Chorus chords for the tabbed instrumental break if you don't feel like fingerpicking;
They're shown above the tabs.
I'm unsure about the Chorus being accurate, so am open to suggestions and edits.

[Verse]
C      G
This hotel is cheap
C       G
And the pillows stink
Am                G
And there's not a single thing
Am          G
To say it's Christmas Eve
C        G
Oh Saint Nicholas
C        G
I know I ain't in your list
Am            G
But if you're listening 
Am       G
I need a bus ticket
C              G
I came through Montreal 
C        G
I lost a lot of dough
Am            G
Could find no honest job
Am            G
So I did some other ones
C        G
Got into trouble and
C        G
I had to run or suffer
Am         G
And then a long road
Am     G
Into a long December

[Verse]
C        G
Over the water and
C        G
Over the border and
Am       G
Over the open land
Am         G
To this Ramada Inn 
C      G
No overbooking here
C          G
No sort of holy birth
Am     G
No miracles occurring
Am         G
No nodding creatures stirring
C        G
Oh Saint Stephen
C             G
Where is your feast when I
Am        G
When I so sorely need it
Am             G
When I've been hardly eating
C               G
But I'd give my food and drink
C         G
To see my home again
Am        G
To see my mother's hand
Am          G
Against her apron edge

[Chorus]
C  G
Oh
C  Em

[Verse]
C        G
Oh Saint Christopher
C         G
Send me a Christian word
Am        G
Send me a southern wind
Am         G
Oh send me up to my kin
C        G
Hear the boys singing
C             G
Through their drunken grinning
Am        G
Oh Jesus, Joseph, Mary
Am           G
I hear their voices carry

[Chorus]
C            G
Carry me home
C   Em
Home
C   Cm Em Am C
Home (x2)

[Verse]
C       G
Can any saints hear me?
C            G
Is there any angel near me?
Am           G
If you won't lift me up
Am             G
Then would you send my love
C          G
Back to my home
C          G
Back to my only shelter
Am           G
Where in the awful weather
Am        G
I will be warm and welcome

[Chorus]
C              G 
Back to my home
