[Intro]
C Fm F G   C Fm F G

[Verse 1]
C         Dm             C         Dm C Dm
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
C          Gm              F     Fm
Jack frost nipping at your nose,
Am       Fm           C         B7
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
Em        Fm              Dm      G
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.
          C       Dm              C         Dm C Dm
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
C       Gm              F        Fm
Help to make the season bright.
Am   Fm              C        B7
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
     Em      Dm      F     G C
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

[Bridge]
                Gm C          Gm C
They know that santa's on his way -
            Gm      C                       F
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
          Fm            Bb        Eb
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy
           Am      D                  F  G7
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

[Verse 2]
C          Dm                   C      Dm C Dm
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
C            Gm            F   Fm
To kids from one to ninety-two
Am                 Fm        C           B7
Although it's been said many times, many ways,
             F   G     C 
"Merry Christmas... to you".
