[Intro]
Bb  Eb/Bb  Bb  Eb/Bb  Bb  Eb/Bb  Bb Eb/Bb

[Verse 1]
Bb
So, tell me Christmas
       Eb/Bb
Are we wise
Bb                      Eb/Bb
To believe in things we never see
Bb                            Eb/Bb
Are prayers just wishes in disguise
Bb                         Gm
And are these wishes being granted me
    Ebmaj7
For now I see
    Gm
The answering
   Em7               Bb/F
To every prayer I've prayed
                                    Bb
She's coming home this Christmas Day

[Instrumental]
Eb/Bb  Bb  Eb/Bb

[Verse 2]
Bb
So tell me Christmas
       Eb/Bb
Are we kind
Bb                     Eb/Bb
More this day than any other day
Bb                   Eb/Bb
Or is it only in our mind
Bb                              Gm
And must it leave when you have gone away
     Ebmaj7
It's different now
     Gm
It's changed somehow
    Em7                Bb/F
And now you're here to stay
Bb/F                             Bb
She's coming home this Christmas Day

[Instrumental]
Bb/Ab  Eb  Bb  Bb/Ab  Eb Bb

[Verse 3]
Bb
All at once the world
Bb
It doesn't seem the same
Bb       Bb/Ab
And in a single night
Bb/Ab
You know it all has changed
Eb                         Bb
And everything is now as it should be
Bb
I have the ornament
Bb
I have the perfect tree
         Bb/Ab
I have a string of lights
Bb/Ab
I have a chance to see
Eb                                    Bb
Everything that my heart thought could be
Bb
For of all the dreams
Bb
You were the first I knew
Bb        Bb/Ab
And every other one
Bb/Ab
Was a charade of you
Eb                                  Bb
You stayed close when I was far away
Bb
And in the darkest night
Bb
You always were the star
Bb          Bb/Ab
That always took us in
Bb/Ab
No matter who we are
    Eb
And so she's coming home this
Eb        Bb
Christmas Day

[Solo]
Bb/Ab Eb Bb Bb/Ab Eb Bb

[Chorus]
Bb
Merry Christmas
Bb
Merry, merry Christmas
Bb/Ab
Merry Christmas
Bb/Ab
Merry, merry Christmas
Eb
Merry Christmas
Eb                     Bb
Have a merry Christmas now
Bb
Merry Christmas
Bb
Merry, merry Christmas
Bb/Ab
Merry Christmas
Bb/Ab
Merry, merry Christmas
Eb
Merry Christmas
Eb                     Bb
Have a merry Christmas now

[Outro]
Bb
She's coming home
Bb/Ab
She's coming home
Eb
She's coming home 
Eb           Bb
From far away
Bb
She's coming home
Bb/Ab
She's coming home
Eb
She's coming home this
Bb        Eb
Christmas Day.
