All I Want for Christmas is You
by Mariah Carey

There're several chordcharts for this song, but all of them seem to kind of miss something,
whether it's a chord, or simply get something wrong. I'm hoping mine gives you the best of all.

Standard tuning, no capo. Key of G, typical for Soprano singers.
See below for vocal guide for key selection.

Chord voicings I use (All open unless otherwise noted):

G:         320033 
Gmaj7:     354433 (Emaj7-shape Barre on 3)
C:         X32010 
D:         XX0232 
Bm11:      X20230 
Am7-5/Eb:  X6758X  Another chart calls this Cm6/Eb and voices it XX1213. I find mine easier on the fingers.
B/D#:      X64442 (A/C# - shape Barre on 2) If you struggle with this, you can voice it open as X6444X
G/D:       XX0022 
E7:        020100 
Am7:       X02213 
D7:        XX0212 
Cm:        X35543 (Am - shape Barre on 3)
D#:        X65343 (C  - shape Barre on 3) Alternatively, X68886 (A - shape Barre on 6)
Em9:       022032 (if tricky, play Em7, as 022030)

And everyone is singing
G            E7

Won't you please bring my baby to me...

Very, very detailed. Would recommend to advanced players only. Great job though, It sounds actually perfect! (:
