THE CHRISTMAS SONG
(as performed by Nat King Cole)

Db6 Ebm7  Fm7 Gbmaj7 (Fm7 Ebm7)

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Db6 Abm7 Db7 Gbmaj7 B9

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Db6 B9    Bbm7 Gm7 Gb7

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

Fmaj7 F#m7 B9 Emaj7 Ebm7 D9

And folks dressed up like Eskimos.......everybody

Db6 Ebm7  Fm7 Gbmaj7 (Fm7 Ebm7)

knows a turkey and some mistletoe

Db6 Abm7 Db7 Gbmaj7 B9

Help to make the season bright

Db6 B9    Bbm7 Gm7 Gb7

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Fm7 E9 Ebm7 D9 Db6

Will find it hard to sleep tonight

        Abm7 Db7 Gbmaj7

They know that Santa's on his way

Abm7      Db7 Gbmaj7

He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

F#m7      B7 Emaj7

And every mother's child is gonna spy

Eb7 Ab7

To see if reindeer really know how to fly

Db6 Ebm7  Fm7 Gbmaj7 (Fm7 Ebm7)

And so I'm offering this simple phrase

Db6 Abm7 Db7 Gbmaj7 B9

To kids from one to ninety-two

Db6 B9 Bbm7 Gm7 Gb7

Although it's been said many times, many ways

Fm7 E9 Ebm7 Ab7 Db6

Merry Christmas to you
