Christmas Song by Various artists
Tablature by Jesper Sloth

Intro:
Am Fm6, C B7, Em7 A Dm7 G7 C

Verse1:
C6           Dm7 - /G        Cmaj7     Dm7 - /G
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire 
C6            Gm7 - C7       F   E7
Jack Frost nipping at your nose 
Am         Fm6          C   F#m7 B7
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
          E      Fm7 - Bb7 - Eb 
And folks dressed up like Eskimos 

Verse2:
Dm7 - G7 - C
Everybody knows
     Dm7 - /G         Cmaj7  Dm7- /G 
a turkey and some mistletoe 
C        Gm7 - C7           F          Bb9
Help to make the season bright. 
Am Fm6                C             B7
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow 
     Em7 -   A7   - Dm7   - G7   - C
Will find it hard to sleep tonight 

Chorus:
               Gm7 C9           Gm7 C9
They know that Saaanta's on his way
             Gm7             C9              Fmaj79
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. 
              Fm7       Bb9       Ebmaj7
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy
           Am7               D7          G7 /G /A /B
To see if reindeer really know how to fly. 
   
   C6         Dm7 /G        Cmaj79       Dm7 /G
And so I'm offering this simple phrase 
    C         Gm7   C7       F    Bb9
To kids from one to ninety-two
Am7                  Bb9          Cmaj7
Although it's been said many times
        Ebdim 
many ways 
      Em7 - Am7 - Dm7 - G7 - Cmaj7
"Merry Christmas        to you."

Very nice. After a few run throughs to practice the phrasing, it's a very pleasant and satisfying song to improvise with. Thx.

What is the "-" (dash symbol) before and after the chords?

Just to show a quicker transition between chords.
