Intro: C – Fm – F – G (2x)

    C                   Dm                   C            - Dm
1.     Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
C                    Gm                   F       - Fm
    Jack Frost nipping at your nose.
Am              Fm                C              B7
    Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
E                   Fm                         Dm   - G
    and folks dressed up like Eskimos.


                          C        Dm                       C             - Dm
2. Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
C              Gm                        F         - Fm
    help to make the season bright.
Am       Fm                  C             B7
    Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow,
          Em     Dm        F     G  C
    will find it hard to sleep tonight.

                                Gm  - C           Gm  - C
     They know that Santa's   on his way,
                        Gm      C                                    F
    he's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.

    And ev'ry mother's child       is gonna spy,
                  Am       -  D                             F  - G7
    to see if reindeer     really know how to fly.

   C                     Dm                             C      - Dm
3.    And so, I'm offering this simple phrase,
C                      Gm                F     - Fm
    to kids from one to ninety-two,
Am                            Fm            C                  B7
    although it's been said many times, many ways,
                      F        - G      C         - G
    "Merry Christmas       to you!"
