Intro: C Am  C Am  C Am  G

     F         C
It's coming on Christmas 
        F            C
They're cutting down trees 
        F          C
They're putting up reindeer 
                     F       C
And singing songs of joy and peace 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
 

    F        C
But it don't snow here 
   F            C
It stays pretty green 
             F             C
I'm going to make a lot of money 
                            F     C
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on 


  F                     G
I wish I had a river so long 
        C                F Am Dm   Dm7
I would teach my feet to fly       wooh
  C            F             G          C
I wish I had a river I could skate away on 
C         G    C
I made my baby cry


   F             C
He tried hard to help me 
             F         C
You know, he put me at ease 
       F           C
And he loved me so naughty 
        F           C
Made me weak in the knees 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on 


    F          C
I'm so hard to handle 
    F               C
I'm selfish and I'm sad 
         F                 C
Now I've gone and lost the best baby 
     F      C
That I ever had 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on 


  F                     G
I wish I had a river so long 
        C                F Am Dm   Dm7
I would teach my feet to fly       wooh
  C            F             G          C
I wish I had a river I could skate away on 
C         G            C
I made my baby say goodby


     F         C
It's coming on Christmas 
        F            C
They're cutting down trees 
        F          C
They're putting up reindeer 
                     F       C
And singing songs of joy and peace 
      Am                         G
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Outro: C Am  C Am  C Am  Am

This sounds perfect! The chords are so easy that you don’t even need to transpose it. Thanks to whoever published this!

if you do the chords the way they are and put a capo on 1 it sounds right.
