Verse:
    A
You better watch out
    D
You better not cry
A   
Better not pout
    D
I'm telling you why
A     Gbm      Bm    E7  A
Santa Claus is coming to town

Verse - same as first -:   
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town


   D
He sees you when you're sleeping
   D
He knows when you're awake
   B7
He knows if you've been bad or good
      E7 - stop -
So be good for goodness sake!
E7     A
O! You better watch out!
    D
You better not cry
A
Better not pout
    D
I'm telling you why
A     Gbm      Bm   E7   A
Santa Claus is coming to town
A     Gbm      Bm   E7   A
Santa Claus is coming to town

  6. ALYways playing

    Amazing chords, sounds fun and festive. -2 is the easiest for me.

  7. DarkSummerDay

    For a little extra bounce, at the very end go G D G. Makes a fun little outro and also works on any other song that ends in G! ?

  8. Its October…Why am I playing this…

  9. Dont Worry Bout Me

    I make the second to last A an F so i can end better

  10. This song isn’t “misc traditional”, it’s by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie, and it’s still under copyright until 2029.

  11. yes, -2 is super easy
