There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I wanted to share a cool version of Mel Torme's classic that I figured out on the piano,
and it sounds excellent on the guitar.  This is a more "folksy" version of it, much
simpler than the actual song and many other versions.  You can even speed up the song 
and play it with a rock tempo.  I typed in the chords EXACTLY where they are supposed to be
played, but this website moves things in the transfer, so you will just have to figure 
out where the changes are.  Enjoy.  -Steve Westfall

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
D	    G          	     D	        G    A

Jack Frost nipping at your nose
D	     D7		       G

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir and
G	   Gm		D	    C#

Folks dressed up like Eskimos…everybody
F#		C	A	    A7

Knows a turkey and some mistletoe
D	   G		       D	            G   A

Help to make the season bright
D	 D7		    G

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow will
G      Gm	        D	              C#

Find it hard to sleep tonight.  They know that
G	            A          D

Santa’s on his way.  He’s loaded
C		  D

Lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.  And every
C				   D

Mother’s child is gonna spy to see if
Bb			    C

Reindeer really know how to fly and
E7		 		A7

So I’m offering this simple phrase to
D	G	         D                           G   A

Kids from one to ninety-two
D	      D7		    G

Although it’s been said many times many ways
G		       Gm	D	        C#

Merry Christmas      to you.
           D	     G A G          D

good corner cutter version of a pretty difficult song to play correctly
