Christmas Must Be Tonight
by The Band
Chords by Doug Horton, December 9, 2006
*** This is my own work ***

[Intro]

G   Em   G   Em

[Verse 1]
                 G                      Am
Come down to the manger, see the little stranger
C                            D         G
Wrapped in swaddling, oh the prince of peace
                 G                      Am
the Wheels start turning, torches start burning
        C                    D        G
And the old wise men journey from the East


[Chorus]
      Em          Am            D              G
How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
         Am B C                      Am B C
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
             Am              D  G            Em
This must be Christmas, must be tonight

G   Em

[Verse 2]
                G                       Am
A shepherd on a hillside, where over my flock I bide
       C                    D           G
On a cold winter night a band of angels sing
             G                               Am
In a dream I heard a voice saying "fear not, come rejoice
          C                               D         G
It's the end of the beginning, praise the new born king"


[Chorus]
      Em          Am            D              G
How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
         Am B C                      Am B C
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
             Am              D  G            Em
This must be Christmas, must be tonight


G   Em

[Verse 3]
              G                       Am
I saw it with my own eyes, written up in the skies
    C                     D       G
But why a simple herdsmen such as I
            G                    Am
And then it came to pass, he was born at last
C                         D          G
Right below the star that shines on high

[Chorus]
      Em          Am            D              G
How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
         Am B C                      Am B C
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
             Am              D  G            Em
This must be Christmas, must be tonight


G   Em

[Refrain]
         Am B C                      Am B C
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
             Am              D  G            Em
This must be Christmas, must be tonight

     G    Em     G    Em     G    Em     G
Be tonight, be tonight, be tonight, be tonight

Nice. Use Capo 5 to match the record, and, in the chorus, the 3 notes in quick succession (at "son of a carpenter") are Am Am/B and C, not Am B C.

It already matches the record, but there is not a C in the verse. It's just G Am D G
