This song is in 3/4.
The first G of every stanza can be done as a little G - Gsus4 - G figure if you want some ornamentation.
[Intro]
G - Dm - F - C
G - Dm - F

[Verse]
G          Dm        
Oh, no one else is happily
F          C          G
Recklessly asking for more than
     Dm
What they may need
        F
I can't say what I need

[Verse 2]
G                   Dm
Oh, temper what you say if you've
F               C
Nothing nice to say
      G           Dm
So my grandmother says to me
         F
With her heart on her sleeve

[Verse 3]
G           Dm
So, sadly I left the door
F          C           G          Dm
Open and I let the dog out in the snow
   F
Oh where did she go?

[Verse 4]
G                           Dm         F
Oh, father friend, will you punish me, punish me
       C           G            Dm
With a look of contempt, with a look of contempt
F
I can recall

[Verse 5]
G                  Dm           F
Oh, I know you did right by me, right by me
C            G              Dm
Wagging your hands when you found me
       F
With a bag of your things

[Verse 6]
G                         Dm
Please, please don't be a stranger here
  F            C              G
A stranger who takes from the world
    Dm                     F
Who takes from the world

[Verse 7]
G                  Dm                F
You, you must be a Christmas tree, a Christmas tree
    C            G             Dm
You light up the room, oh, you light up the room
       F
Oh you light up the room

[Verse 8]
G                Dm
So, suddenly you kiss me
    F             C             G
You tickled me in front of your mother
    Dm
Who looked away
         F
With her hands on her face

[Instrumental break]
G - Dm - F - C
G - Dm - F

[Coda]
(quietly, building over next four stanzas)

G
Don't run away my friend
Dm
You won't be back again
C
You said you needed me
      G
But I know that you needed yourself to be cleaned of me

G
Don't run away my friend
Dm
You won't be back again
C
You said you needed me
      G
But I know that you needed yourself to be cleaned of me

G
Don't run away my friend
Dm
You won't be back again
C
You ran your hands through my hair in the snow
          G 
Where the frost of it blows with the terrible ghost

G
Don't run away my friend
Dm
You won't be back again
C
You said you needed me
      G (hold)
But I know...

[Instrumental break] 
G - G7 - Dm - F, repeat ad infinitum
