The Christmas Song Chords

C	      Dm                     C/E    (F, C/E, Dm)
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 
C          C7               F       Bb7
Jack Frost nipping on your nose, 
Am7       Ab          C/G        F#m
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, 
     Em7         Ab7       Dm7     C/G     G7
And folks dressed up like Eskimos. 
[ Tab from: ]
          C	 Dm               C/E    (F, C/E, Dm)
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe, 
C       C7               F       Bb7
Help to make the season bright. 
Am7  Ab              C/G      F#m
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, 
      Dm7             G7     C
Will find it hard to sleep tonight. 

               Gm7  C7          F
They know that Santa's on his way; 
            Gm7               C7              F
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. 
             Fm2   Bb7/9	           Eb9
And every mother's child is going to spy, 
          Dm7/9           F7           G7
To see if reindeer really know how to fly. 

    C	     Dm          C/E          (F, C/E, Dm)
And so I'm offering this simple phrase, 
    C        C7             F       Bb7
To kids from one to ninety-two, 
Am7                Ab        C/G        F#m
Although its been said many times, many ways, 
        Dm7,   G7,  C
Merry Christmas to you
