Jethro Tull A Christmas Song capo 2 C G D Am Once in royal davids city C G D Am Em Am stood a lonely cattle shed, C G D Am Where a mother held her baby. C G D Am G Em Am Youd do well to remember the things he later said. C G D Am When youre stuffing yourselves at the christmas parties, C G D Am Em Am Youll just laugh when I tell you to take a running jump. C G D Am C Em Am Youre missing the point Im sure does not need making C G D D G Em Am That christmas spirit is not what you drink. C G D Am So how can you laugh when your own mothers hungry, C G D Am G Em Am And how can you smile when the reasons for smiling are wrong? C G D Am And if I just messed up your thoughtless pleasures, C G D Am G Em Am Remember, if you wish, this is just a christmas song.
