E              F#m11
    Hello Dan,    it's Joe here,
Emaj7                     F#m11
    I hope you're keeping well,
E                        F#m11
    it’s the 21st of December
Emaj7                            F#m11
    now they’re ringing the last bell.
Aadd9                        Emaj7
    If I get good behaviour
Aadd9                            Badd11
    I'll be out of here by July,
E                             F#m11
    won’t you kiss my kids on Christmas day,
Emaj7      F#m11                    E
    please don't let them cry for me.
F#m11    Emaj7    F#m11


E                                              F#m11
    I guess the brothers are driving down from Queensland
Emaj7                               F#m11
    and Stella's flying in from the coast.
E                                    F#m11
    They say it's gonna be a hundred degrees, even more maybe,
Emaj7              F#m11
    but that won't stop the roast.
Aadd9                    Emaj7
    Who's gonna make the gravy now?
Aadd9                        Badd11
    I bet it won't taste the same
E                         F#m11
    Just add flour, salt, a little red wine and don't forget a
Emaj7                      F#m11
dollop of tomato sauce for sweetness and that extra tang.


                    E            F#m11
And give my love to Angus and to Frank and Dolly,
                 Emaj7           F#m11
Tell 'em all I'm sorry I screwed up this time.
               E                      F#m11
And look after Rita, I'll be thinking of her,
                Emaj7             F#m11         E    
early Christmas morning, when I'm standing in line.
F#m11    Emaj7    F#m11


E                           F#m11
    I hear Mary's got a new boyfriend,
Emaj7                      F#m11
    I hope he can hold his own
E                                 F#m11
    Do you remember the last one?    What was his name again?
Emaj7                           F#m11
   (Just a little too much cologne)
Aadd9                                  Emaj7
    And Roger, you know I'm even gonna miss Roger
Aadd9                                      Badd11
'Cause there's sure as hell no one in here I want to fight


                   E                   F#m11
Oh praise the Baby Jesus, have a Merry Christmas,
                 Emaj7                             F#m11
I'm really gonna miss it, all the treasure and the trash
                 E                    F#m11
And later in the evening, I can just imagine,
                     Emaj7                      F#m11
You'll put on Junior Murvin and push the tables back
                      E                       F#m11
And you'll dance with Rita, I know you really like her,
                    Emaj7                 F#m11
Just don't hold her too close, oh brother please don't stab me in the back
                 E                              F#m11
I didn't mean to say that, it's just my mind it plays up,
                Emaj7               F#m11
Multiplies each matter, turns imagination into fact
                    E                       F#m11
You know I love her badly, she's the one to save me,
                    Emaj7                      F#m11
I'm gonna make some gravy, I'm gonna taste the fat
                  E                      F#m11
Tell her that I'm sorry, yeah I love her badly,
                 Emaj7                      F#m11
tell 'em all I'm sorry, and kiss the sleepy children for me.
                      E                    F#m11
You know one of these days, I'll be making gravy,
               Emaj7             F#m11       E
I'll be making plenty, I'm gonna pay 'em all back.
F#m11     Emaj7     F#m11

E    F#m11    Emaj7    F#m11
E    F#m11    Emaj7    F#m11

Hi there good job on a great song. Can I suggest 1 improvement where you have A B A B try A G#m A B
Also use the open chord fingering in this link

In the line

Who's gonna make the gravy now?

I think the B should be a G#

The 2nd B in

I bet it won't taste the same

Is fine

Any chance you could continue the chords the whole way through - for us beginner?
