D                D
 Once bitten and twice shy
Bm7
 I keep my distance

But you still catch my eye
E9sus4    Em7
 Tell me, baby
E9sus4      Em7
Do you recognize me?
A7sus4       A7    
  Well, it's been a year

It doesn't surprise me


[Verse]
Dsus2   D
 (Merry Christmas)
  Dsus2             D
I wrapped it up and sent it
Bm11        Bm7
With a note saying
 Bm11           Bm7
"I love you," I meant it
E9sus4 Em7         E9sus4    Em7
Now I  know what a fool I've been

But if you kissed me now
             A7sus4   A7
I know you'd fool me again


[Chorus]

A crowded room
D
 Friends with tired eyes
    Bm7
I'm hiding from you
         Bm7
And your soul of ice
E7sus4    Em7              E7sus4       Em7
 My God I thought you were someone to rely on
A7sus4 A7            A7sus4      A7
Me?  I guess I was a shoulder to cry on


[Verse]
  Dsus2     D
A face on a lover 
       Dsus2       D
With a fire in his heart
  Bm11      Bm7
A man under cover 
        Bm11     Bm7
But you tore me apart
| E9sus4 Em7 |  %  | 
              Ooh-hoo
         A7sus4       A7                 A7sus4   A7
Now I've found a real love, you'll never fool me again

[Chorus]
Dsus2 D
Last  Christmas
  Dsus2       D
I gave you my heart
        Bm11      Bm7
But the very next day

You gave it away (you gave it away)
E9sus4 Em7
This   year

A man under cover 
        Bm11     Bm7
But you tore me apart

         Maybe ... next year
     A7sus4     A7 
I'll give it to someone 
     A7sus4     A7 
I'll give it to someone

This is a great tab IMO, sounds very good when played properly, very guitary.

'Thank you! I always try to turn even the least guitar oriented songs into something that sounds "guitary". Enjoy playing!
