CHRISTMAS SONG - Hootie and the Blowfish arrangement
Transposed up one step and simplified from Mel Torme's "Christmas Song" of 1946 [Mel 
Robt. Wells (c) 1946]
Tabbed by Tyler Sinks (12/11/04)
Standard tuning
Intro: D
D A                   D         A
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
D   A                          G  G   Gm
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Bm Bm    Gm               D D D            G#m      C#
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
F#m            Bm                    Em    A   D   A
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

D
Everybody knows
A                     D    A
a turkey and some mistletoe
D     A                     G   G   Gm
Help to make the season bright.
Bm Bm  Gm      D D D   G#m  C#
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow
F#m           Bm     Em        A   D
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

Am               Am
They know that Santa's on his way;
Am               Am                           G
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
Gm           C                      F
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy
Bm            E     A
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

D     A                   D         A
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
D     A                     G G Gm
To kids from one to ninety-two;
Bm       A            D Bm  Em A
Although it's been said many times, many ways
D Bm Em A D    A
"Merry Christmas to you."
