[Verse]
A   Bm   C#m        F#m         
I'd give anything to see
Bm       E
A little Christmas tree
       A
And to hear
         D           DM7                     C#m   F#m
Hear the laughter of children playing in the snow, hooo hoo
Bm              E
To kiss my baby under the mistletoe

[Chorus]
A           C#m7       F#m7
But I can't promise my eyes this sight
Bm                   E
Unless they stop the fight
            A
Cause I'm a prisoner of war
      Em7        A7
Lying here in my cell
Em7                 G
Hoping my family is well
Bmadd4                              E
Wishin' they wouldn't worry so much about me
C#m          F#m   Bm
Just try to get us home
E               A
In time for the Christmas tree
D       E
Oh, yes oh!

Oh, I wanna hear jingle bells ringing
A           C#m7       F#m7
But I can't promise my eyes that sight

Oh, unless, unless they stop the fight
