Merry Christmas Mary
Written by Don Schlitz & Paul Overstreet
Recorded by Paul Overstreet
(No Capo)

[Intro]
A D x2

A          D                  E                 A
Joseph was tired, they'd been traveling all day
D             A                  D                     E
It was almost midnight before he found a place to stay

A                   D               E                     A
He put the burro in the stall, then knelt beside his wife
   D                  A                 E              A
To comfort her as she went through, the pain of giving life

[Pre Chorus]
D          E                A               D
Up above a star was shining brightly in the sky
D               A              C                 D
Joseph held the baby child and showed him to his wife

[Chorus]
               G     C          D     C      G               Am  D
And he said, " Merry Christmas, Mary, let me be the first to say
G     C          Em   A7     Am             D7             G
Merry Christmas, Mar- y, the son of God has come to us to- day"

A                    D             E                    A
There was someone at the door, and Joseph turned to see
     D                A            D                   E E/B
Some plain and simple shepherd men down on bended knee

A                    D         E                       A
They talked about an angel who told them where to come
       D             A             E          A
In the middle of the night to see, God's only son

[Pre Chorus]
     D                E                A                D
Then later there came wise men bearing gifts and offer- ins
D                   A              C                   D
And Joseph led them all to see and praise the new born king
C/E                 D7/F#
Praise the new born king

[Chorus]
               G     C          D     C      G               Am  D
And he said, " Merry Christmas, Mary, let us be the first to say
G     C          Em   A7     Am             D7                G
Merry Christmas, Mar- y, the son of God has come to us today"

C                 D/A            G
Tears of joy were gently flowing out of Joseph's eyes
C                  G              C        Em    D
While up above the angels sang, " Glory to God!"

[Chorus]
A     D          E     D      A               Bm  E
Merry Christmas, Mary, let us be the first to say
A     D          F#m  B7     Bm             E7               A
Merry Christmas, Mar- y, the son of God has come to us today

    Bm             E                  A       D   A
The son of God has come to us to day
