C       Em       Dm    G7
I'll be home for Christmas, 
C       Gm    A   Dm
You can count on  me 
Fm          G7        C     Am
Please have snow, and mistletoe, 
    D7       Dm     G7
and presents on the tree 

C         Em       Dm   G7
Christmas Eve will find me, 
C         Gm   A     Dm
Where the love light gleams 
F       Fm       C     A7
I'll be home for Christmas, 
   D7   Dm  G  C
If only in  my dreams

  1. christmas aaaaaaaaa

    i like to transpose +5. Easier to sing and quite simple to play.

  2. Phoenomenon742

    This is the traditional version not Bing’s. His is:
    G A7 D7, G E7 Am, C D7 G Em, A7 Am D7
    G A7 D7, G E7 Am, C Cm G E7, A7 D7 Am G

  3. DarkSummerDay

    This is so cool!

  4. marinasaurus

    for the last line I replace the G with G7.

  5. ooopsnevermind

    In the line “and presents on the tree ” I like to add G at the end like:
    D7 Dm G7 G

  6. When the chords are D7-Dm-G-C it sounds a lot better to use F instead of D7 as it blends better with the vocal dynamics both soprano and alto
