THE CHRISTMAS SONG                      Christmas Songs
(Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)

C6         Dm7     G7     Cmaj9     Dm7 G7-9 
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
C6          Gm7    C7       F    E7
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Am        Fm6          C        F#m7-5   B7
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
     E            Fm7     Bb7-9     Eb 
And folks dressed up like Eski  -  mos
Dm7   G7     C     Dm7/g           Cmaj7        Dm7/g G7-9     
Every-body knows a turkey and some mistletoe
C        Gm7      C7       F    Bb9
Help to make the season bright
Am   Fm6               C        B7-9       
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow 
     Em&-5    A7     Dm7-5  G7       C
Will find it hard to sleep      to-night
                Gm7  C9          Gm7
They know that San - ta's on his way
C9           Gm7               C9             Fm9
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
            Fm7     Bb9           Ebmaj9
And ev'ry mohter's child is gonna spy 
           Am7             D7-5       G7
To see if reindeer really know how to fly
        C9  B9   Bb9         A9 Ab9    G9  G7-9
And so I'm offer-ing   this sim-ple phrase
     C       Gm7      C7    F   Bb9
To kids from one to ninety-two
    Am7              Bb9       Cmaj7      D13-9 
Al-though it's been said many times many ways
        Em7-5  Am7  Dm7-5  G7-9   Cmaj7
Merry Christ - mas         to     you.
