"Christmas" by Blues Traveler
>From the album "A Very Special Christmas"
Transcribed by Amanda Radford  (Lyrics added by TeddyGoodBoy)


C                   F                G              Am  G
Comes the time for Christmas, and I really have to ask
Am                 F               G              C
If this is feeling merry, how much longer must it last
C                          F                      G        Am  G
I wish your one-horse open sleigh, would come and carry me away
              Am               F                 G              C
But I've been waiting here all day, and one just hasn’t come my way
    C                          F                   G                       Am       G  
Now excuse me if I’m not being reverent, but I was hoping for a miracle to hold me, wash me
Am              F                      G                  C
Save me from my righteous doubt, as I watch helpless, and everybody sings
        C           F       G                   Am       G      Am
If it's Chanukah or Kwanza, Solstice Harvest or December twenty fifth
Am                F             G            C
Peace on Earth to everyone, and abundance to everyone your with

CHORUS:  C   F   G   Am G     Am   F   G   Bb  C C   Bb Bb   C C
         La Laaaa La La La La…             Laaaaaa

C                   F                     G                   Am   G
Comes the time for Christmas, and as you raise your Yuletide flask
                  Am               F                       G         C
There’s like this feeling that you carry, as if from every Christmas past
        C               F                    G               Am   G
It’s as if each year it grows, it’s like you feel it in your toes
           Am            F                G               C
And on and on your carol goes, harvesting love among your woes
          C               F                   G                       Am       G  
      I want to buy into the benevolence, and I was hoping for a miracle to hold me, wash me
Am                 F                 G              C
Make me know what it’s about, as the longing in me, makes me want to sing
C       F        G                     Am       G          Am
Noel or Navidad, season celebration or just the end of the year
Am                 F               G                C
Christmas can mean anything, and I mean to keep its hope forever near

REPEAT CHORUS

        Am       Am     G        G          Am       Am         C    C
As if a cold and frozen soul was warmed, to love, by love’s own hand
            Am         Am    G         G         F        F       G
So goes the prayer, if for a day peace on Earth, and good will to men 

          C                         F                G                 C   G
At twenty below the winter storm it billows, but the fire is so warm inside
        Am                              F                 G             C
And the children while nestled in their pillows, dream of St. Nicholas’ ride
            C                                F                 G                       C   G
   And how the next day they’ll get up and they will play, in the still falling Christmas snow    
    Am                          F            G                      C G
And together we’ll celebrate forever, in defiance of the winds that blow
          C                           F              G                     C 
My God in Heaven, now I feel like I’m seven, and the Spirit calls to me as well
      Am                      F              G                      C
As if Christmas, had made the winter warmer, made a paradise from what was Hell
        
        Am       Am     G       G          Am       Am         C    C
As if a cold and frozen soul is warmed, to love, by love’s own hand
            Am         Am    G         G         F        F       G
So goes the prayer, if for a day peace on Earth, and good will to men
