      WHEN IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME IN TEXAS    George Strait

C                     B7      C
When it's Christmas time in Texas
C
It's a very special time for me
Dm                    F       C
In Texas we'll be swinging around the Christmas Tree
Dm               D        G
Dancing to a Christmas melody
C                    B7       C
When it's Christmas time in Texas
C                                 F
It might look just like a summer day
F                 Dm     C      A7
There may not be snow in San Antonio
Dm                  G         C
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
F                   E7       F
When Santa crosses over the border
        C
He'll sound a little different when he sings
              F          E7            F
'Cause he'll hear those twin fiddles playing
           Dm            D                G
Christmas songs with a touch of western swing
F                Dm       C       A7
There may not be snow in San Antonio
Dm                  G          C
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
C               B7       C
It's Christmas time in Texas
C
I love to hear those Christmas carolers sing
Dm            F               C          A7
People on the go children's faces all a-glow
Dm               D             G
Wondering what Santa's gonna bring
C               B7              C
Grandpa been chasing grandma around
C                                     F
Trying to catch her 'neath the mistle-toe
F              Dm        C                     A7
Everything is right The Lone Star is shining bright
Dm                 G          C
and it's a Texas Christmas to me
F                   E7        F
When Santa crosses over the border
        C
He'll sound a little different when he sings
              F          E7            F
'Cause he'll hear those twin fiddles playing
           Dm            D                G
Christmas songs with a touch of western swing
F                 Dm      C       A
There may not be snow in San Antonio
Dm                 G           C
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
             F         Dm             C       A
And here's wishing you all a Merry Christmas
Dm                     G       C
Merry Christmas from Texas and me
