Chorus 1: 
     G                       C  D
He met her up in Delaware in 1937
G                                C                 D
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
G                    C             D             C                        
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when he finally gained the 
            D
courage to ask her to dance

G    C  D   (4X)

Verse 1:
             G                             C              G
It was the night before Christmas, it was love at first sight
        G                   D                  D   
The carolers sang as they danced through the night
           G                         C        G
She was a small town girl, he was a traveling guy
           G                         D                G
He never caught her name before they said their goodbyes
G                            C           G
A couple years later he was out on the road
G                            D      D
Having Christmas dinner in a diner alone
         G                           C            G
When he saw a young waitress with a gleam in her eye
             G                             D             G
Her favorite day of the year she showed her spirits were high
         C                       G        D
She said sir can you share a little holiday cheer
G                                     D         D
A simple Christmas story was all she wanted to hear
              G                         C         G              G       
He looked prepared with a smile as he started to say here’s my favorite 
                         D
Christmas story about a girl with no name



Chorus  2:
G                                   C  D 
He said I met her up in Delaware in 1937
G                                C                D
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
G                    C            D           G
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when I               
                               D          G
finally gained the courage to ask her to dance


Verse 2:
       G                      C                                            
Every holiday season as he traveled he’d 
G               G
tell about his Christmas dance 
                 D           D 
partner that he never knew well
       G                                C         G
He’d share his favorite story with the locals he met
         G                                D         G  
He was called the Christmas story tellin traveling man


G                 C            G  
By age 53 he had done settled down
G                                   D          D  
All the neighborhood kids liked to gather around
             G                            C          G              
Just to listen to his stories about his life on the road
G                           D          G
All he had now were these children he told
      G                            C          G    
And every Christmas eve they showed up before dark
 G                                 D           D  
He’d tell them all the story but they knew it by heart
            G                             C          G  
They could quote it word for word, he always told it the same.
                       G                        D
It was his favorite Christmas story called the girl with no name



Chorus  2:
G                                   C  D 
He said I met her up in Delaware in 1937
G                                C                D
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
G                    C            D           G
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when I               
                               D          G
finally gained the courage to ask her to dance




Verse  3:
G                        C             G
Twenty years later as he took his last breath
             G                          D        D
It was on a cold Christmas morning on a hospital bed
       G                      C        G
The children were grown, he had nobody left
             G                        D
Except the little old nurse who was holding his hand
                C                                      G              
He said Ma’am can you share a little holiday cheer
    G                                D     D      
A simple Christmas story was all he wanted to hear
         G                             C          G 
But his eyes filled with tears at the words that she spoke
                      G                    D
Because his favorite Christmas story was the one that she told


Chorus 3:
            G                        C   D 
She said I met him up in Delaware in 1937
          G                           C         D 
Though I never caught his name he was a traveling man
   G                 C      D 
December 24th at a quarter till eleven
        G                      D          G
I’m so glad he got the courage to ask me to dance.
