C                       F
Once I found a stowaway

     G                     C
Upon my ship on Christmas Day

Am                Dm                  G
I was fair, so I gave him a chance.

          C                           F
“You shouldn’t be here, what’s your tale?

   G                            C
I ought to throw you to the whale.”

Am                            Dm                                  G
He just smiled and said, “Come here, let’s dance.”


CHORUS:
                C                        F              C
He said, “Borrow or steal, I’ll find a way

     F                 C         Dm                   G
To be with my lover upon Christmas Day

              C                                 F              C
And I’ll run, and I’ll roam, I’ll cover the ground

         F                     C     Am      G       
  C
Next Christmas I’ll see you, I’ll be around.”

C     / F     / G     / C     /

He told me ‘bout his girl back home
Waiting patient, all alone
While we danced I shed a little tear.
He closed his eyes, all out at sea
I think he danced with her, not me
I’ll just have to wait another year.

He said, “Borrow or steal, I’ll find a way
To be with my lover upon Christmas Day
And I’ll run, and I’ll roam, I’ll cover the ground
Next Christmas I’ll see you, I’ll be around.

G     / D     / A     / D     /

   D                          G
I think of him now and again

    A                      D
I wonder how his journey ends

Bm              Em                         A
As I sail by on my lonesome sea.

          D                         G
That stranger with the haunting face

A                               D
Here, then gone without a trace.

Bm                    Em                               A
Lying with his love, that’s where he’ll be.


CHORUS:
          D                        G              D
Beg, borrow or steal, I’ll find a way

      G                 D         Em                   A
To be with my lover upon Christmas Day

              D                                 G              D
And I’ll run, and I’ll roam, I’ll cover the ground

         G                     D            A           D
Next Christmas I’ll see you, I’ll be around.

Beg, borrow or steal, I’ll find a way
To be with my lover upon Christmas Day
And I’ll run, and I’ll roam, I’ll cover the ground
Next Christmas I’ll see you, I’ll be around.
