Jim Henry - The Tree



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]

The first one I remember 
     C                   G
Was about three times my size
D
We all stood there watching
   G
As Dad brought it inside
   C
It took almost an hour
   G        D       G
To stand it up just right
            C       G       D    G
When he was done he held my Mama tight


[Verse 2]

We made cookies and hot chocolate
      C            G
Sewed popcorn on a string
        D
Cranked up the record player
             G
So Mom could sing along with Bing
        C
We hung candy canes and ornaments
    G      D      G
And tinsel liberally
               C              G      D         G
Turned off the light, plugged in the Christmas tree


[Chorus]
         C
We can't start until it gets here
             G
And we won't stop until it goes
     C
It arrives on top of Dad's old Ford
         G               D
But only stays a week or so
         G
It's the one family tradition
   C
On which we all agree
     G        C         G          D       G
It's just not Christmas 'til we've got the tree


[Verse 3]

We wrote down what we wanted
        C                  G
All the bikes and guns and games
    D
Mom set the list on fire
                G
Sent 'em up the chimney in flames
C
Tucked us all in tight
             G       D       G
Said, in the morning we will see
           C        G       D         G
What Santa leaves under the Christmas tree


[Chorus]
         C
We can't start until it gets here
             G
And we won't stop until it goes
     C
It arrives on top of Dad's old Ford
         G               D
But only stays a week or so
         G
It's the one family tradition
   C
On which we all agree
     G        C         G          D       G
It's just not Christmas 'til we've got the tree


[Verse 4]

The tree looked different in the morning
        C              G
All its promise was fulfilled
   D
Surrounded by our presents
     G
From floor to window sill
          C
And after all the noise and Polaroids
    G         D      G
And shouts of joyful glee
        C       G       D         G
I fell asleep under the Christmas tree


[Chorus]
         C
We can't start until it gets here
             G
And we won't stop until it goes
     C
It arrives on top of Dad's old Ford
         G               D
But only stays a week or so
         G
It's the one family tradition
   C
On which we all agree
     G        C         G          D       G
It's just not Christmas 'til we've got the tree
