Auld Lang Syne

Robert Burns

G                                          D                        G                                 C

Should auld acquaintance be forgot And never brought to mind?

               G                            D                            Em         D            G
Should auld acquaintance be forgot And days of Auld Lang Syne?


G                            D                            G                  C
For Auld Lang Syne, my dear, For Auld Lang Syne

            G                 D                Em   D         G
We'll take a cup of kindness yet For Auld Lang Syne

And here's a hand, my trusty friend, And gives a hand o' thine
We'll take a cup of kindness yet For Auld Lang Syne


Away in a Manger

James Murray

G                                      C                 G            D                                         C                     G

Away in a manger, no crib for His bed, The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head.

G                                 C                           G              
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay. 

D            G                  C         D   G

The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.


The cattle are lowing, the poor Baby wakes, But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes;
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky

And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay, Close by me forever, and love me, I pray!
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care

And take us to heaven, to Live with Thee there


Deck the Halls

J.P. McCaskey

G                                                             D               G      D      G

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la...

D                            G                                  A            D

Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la, la la la, la la la

G                                                    C                   G     D       G

Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la, la la la la.


See the blazing Yule before us, Fa la la...

Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la...

Follow we in merry measure, Fa la la...

While I tell of Yuletide pleasure, Fa la la la la, la la la la.


Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la...

Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la...

Sing the joyous song together, Fa la la...

Leave us of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Frosty the Snowman


G                                                C                       G

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly, happy soul,

               C            D               G                                        D                            G

With a corncob pipe and a button nose, And two eyes made out of coal.

Frosty the Snowman was a fairy tale they say,

He was made of snow, but the children know, How he came to life one day.


               C                                    G                      D                          G

There must have been some magic, In that old silk hat they found,

               D                                                A                            D

For when they put it on his head, He began to dance around.


Oh, Frosty the Snowman was alive as he could be;

And the children say he could laugh and play, Just the same as you and me.


G                                                                                                                       D

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump, Look at Frosty go;

D                                                                                                                       G

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump, Over the hills of snow.


Oh, Frosty the Snowman knew the sun was hot that day,

So he said, Let's run, and we'll have some fun, Now before I melt away.

Down to the village with a broomstick in his hand,

Running here and there all around the square, Saying catch me if you can.


He led them down the streets of town, Right to the traffic cop,

And he only paused a moment, when he heard him holler, Stop!


So Frosty the Snowman had to hurry on his way;

But he waved good-bye, saying, Don't you cry, I'll be back again someday.


Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

Elmo Shropshire

G                                                                                                                                          C

Grandma got run over by a reindeer, Walking home from our house Christmas eve.

C                                                                 G                 D                                               G   F-D-G

You can say there's no such thing as Santa, But as for me and Grandpa we believe.


                                                             D                                                    G-G7

She'd been drinking too much eggnog, And we begged her not to go.

                                              C                           D                                                G

But she forgot her medication, And she staggered out the door into the snow.


When we found her Christmas morning, At the scene of the attack,

She had hoofprints on her forehead, And incriminating Claus-marks on her back.


Grandma got run over by a reindeer...


Now we're all so proud of Grandpa, He's been taking this so well.

See him in there watching football, Drinking ‘nogg and playing cards with cousin Mel.


It's not Christmas without Grandma, All the family's dressed in black.

And we just can't help but wonder, Should we open up her gifts or send them back!


Grandma got run over by a reindeer...


Now the goose is on the table, And the pudding made of fig,

And the blue and silver candles, That would have matched the hair in Grandma's wig.


I've warned all my friends and neighbors, Better watch out for yourselves.

They should never give a license, To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves.


Grandma got run over by a reindeer...


Jingle Bells

J. Pierpont



Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,

C                       G       A                           D

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!


Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,

C                            G                    D                           G

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!


G                                                                                         C

Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh,

C                              D                                G

O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way.

Bells on bobbed tails ring, making spirits bright,

What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight. (Chorus)



A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride

And soon Miss Fanny Bright, was seated by my side;

The horse was lean and lank, misfortune seemed his lot,

We ran into a drifted bank, and there we got upsot. (Chorus)



A day or two ago, the story I must tell

I went out on the snow and on my back I fell;

A gent was riding by, in a one-horse open sleigh

He laughed as I was sprawling laid, and quickly drove away. (Chorus)


Now the ground is white.  Go it while you're young.

Take the girls tonight, and sing the sleighing song.

Just get a bob-tail bay, two-forty for his speed,

Then hitch him to an open sleigh, and Crack! you'll take the lead. (Chorus)


Joy to the World

Isaac Watts

G                                   D              G             C          D                    G

Joy to the world, the Lord is come; Let earth receive her King.


Let every heart prepare Him room,

               G                                           D           

And heaven and nature sing, And heaven and nature sing,

               G       C         G         C    G-D    G

And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.


Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns; Let men their songs employ,

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains

Repeat the sounding joy...


No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground.

He comes to make His blessings flow

Far as the curse is found...


He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness,

And wonders of His love...


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

John Marks

                    C                       Bm            Am                     G

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

C                    Bm                Am           G

Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen.

Em                                          A                               D

But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?


G                                                                                         D

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, had a very shiny nose,

D7                                                                            G

And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows.

G                                                                                           D

All of the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names;

D7                                                                                      G

They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.


C                            G                            D                     G

Then one foggy, Christmas eve, Santa came to say,

D                                                          A                                  D

Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?


Then how the reindeer loved him, as they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the red-nose reindeer, you'll go down in history.


Silent Night

Joseph Mohr

G                                        D              G

Silent night, Holy night, All is calm all is bright

C                                 G                           C                           G
'Round yon virgin Mother and Child, Holy Infant so tender and mild
D               D7              G                      D                   G

Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace


Silent night, holy night, Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar, Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia;
Christ the Savior is born; Christ the Savior is born.


Silent night, holy night, Son of God, love's pure Light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth; Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth


Silver Bells

Jay Livingston/Ray Evans

G                                           G7                         C            Am

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style,

               D                                           G

In the air there's a feeling of Christmas.

Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile,

And on every street corner you hear



G                  C          Am     D                                           G

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmastime in the city.

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, Soon it will be Christmas day.


Strings of street lights, even stop lights blink a bright red and green

As the shoppers rush home with their treasures.

Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch, this is Santa's big scene,

And above all this bustle you hear (Chorus)

Glad tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.


So bring us some figgy pudding, so bring us some figgy pudding,

So bring us some figgy pudding, and bring it right here.


Glad tidings we bring...


We won't go until we get some, we won't go until we get some,

We won't go until we get some, so bring it right now.


Glad tidings we bring...
