CHRISTMAS SONG
Mel Torme, Robt.Wells (c) 1946

[Am Fm6, C B7, Em7 A Dm7 G7 C]
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire [C6 Dm7 /g Cmaj79 Dm7 /g]
Jack Frost nipping at your nose [C6 Gm7 C7 F E7]
Yuletide carols being sung by A choir [Am Fm6 C F#m7 B7]
And folks dressed up like Eskimos [E Fm7 Bb7 Eb]

Everybody knows [Dm7 G7 C]
A turkey and some mistletoe [Dm7 /G Cmaj7 Dm7 /G]
Help to make the season bright. [C Gm7 C7 F Bb9]
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow [Am Fm6 C B7]
Will find it hard to sleep tonight [Em7 A7 Dm7 G7 C]

They know that Santa's on his way; [Gm7 C9 Gm7 C9]
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. [Gm7 C9 Fmaj79]
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy [Fm7 Bb9 Ebmaj7]
To see if reindeer really know how to fly. [Am7 D7 G7 /g /a /b]

And so I'm offering this simple phrase [C6 Dm7 /g Cmaj79 Dm7 /g]
To kids from one to ninety-two; [C Gm7 C7 F Bb9]
Although it's been said many times, [Am7 Bb9 Cmaj7]
many ways [Ebdim]
"Merry Christmas to you." [Em7 Am7 Dm7 G7, Cmaj7]

Brilliantly rendered chords. amazing that so many hack jobs are rated so highly while this subtle, sophisticated work of a master craftsman was rated one star.

SteveDoman: Yes, the chords are sweet and correct. I would guess that (1) most people don't know how to play these chords without a cheat chart, (2) have the ability to play the progressions smoothly, and (3) know how to do a gentle jazz style with a guitar (either electric or acoustic).

There is a clearer rendering of this Title with the same chords filed under Nat King Cole. That version provides a sense of where the changes fit for those who are trying to learn the pattern of the song. This version above presumes the player already knows it well.

Just saying...
