The Christmas Song Chords

I wanted to share a cool version of Mel Torme's classic that I figured out on the piano,
and it sounds excellent on the guitar.  This is a more "folksy" version of it, much
simpler than the actual song and many other versions.  You can even speed up the song 
and play it with a rock tempo.  I typed in the chords EXACTLY where they are supposed to be
played, but this website moves things in the transfer, so you will just have to figure 
out where the changes are.  Enjoy.  -Steve Westfall
