And when those blue snowflakes start fallin'

But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas

Frosty the Snowman
Frosty the Snow Man [C] was a jolly happy soul [F] [C]
With a corn-cob pipe and a button nose [F] [C] and two eyes made out of
coal. [G7] [C] [G7]
Frosty the Snow Man is a fairy tale they say [C] [F] [C]
He was made of snow [F F#dim] but the children know [C Am] how he came to
life one day. [Dm7 G7 C]
There must have been some magic in [F] [Em7] [A7] that old silk hat they
found, [Dm7] [G7] [Cmaj7]
For when they put it on his head [G G#dim] he began to dance around. [Am7]
[D7] [G] [G7]

Oh, Frosty the Snow Man [C] was alive as he could be, [F] [F#dim] [C]
And the children say [F] he could laugh and play [Em7] [A7] just the same as
you and me. [Dm7] [G7] [C]

Frosty the Snow Man [C] knew the sun was hot that day, [F] [C]
So he said, "Let's run [F] and we'll have some fun [C] now before I melt
away." [G7] [C] [G7]
Down to the village [C] with a broomstick in his hand, [F] [C]
Running here and there [F] [F#dim] all around the square, [C] [Am] saying
"Catch me if you can." [Dm7] [G7] [C]

He led them down the streets of town [F] [Em7] [A7] right to the traffic cop,
[Dm7] [G7] [Cmaj7]
And he only paused a moment [G] [G#dim] when he heard him holler, [Am7] [D7]
"Stop!" [G] [G7]
For Frosty the Snow Man [C] had to hurry on his way, [F] [F#dim] [C]
But he waved good-bye, [F] saying, "Don't you cry; [Em7] [A7] I'll be back
again some day." [Dm7] [G7] [C]

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpety
thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow. [C] [G7] [G7] [G7] [C]

To save us all from Satan's pow'r [Am] [B7]
When we were gone a-stray [Em] [D/F#]

O tidings of comfort and joy, [G] [CG] [B7] [Em]
Comfort and joy! [D]

In Bethlehem, in Israel, this blessed Babe was born,
And laid within a manger upon this blessed morn;
The which His Mother Mar-y did nothing take in scorn.

From God our heav'nly Father, a blessed angel came;
And unto certain shepherds brought tidings of the same;
How that in Bethlehem was born the
Son of God by name.

[E] Dashing through the snow,
in a one horse open [A] sleigh
O're the fields we [B7] go
laughing all the [E] way.
Bells on bobtail ring,
making spirits [A] bright.

O Holy Night

C F C
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
G C
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth
C F C
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Em B7 Em
Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn
Am Em Dm Am
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices

O night, O holy night, O night divine

Verse 2:
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here came the wise men from Orient land
The King of Kings, lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger
Behold, your king
Before Him lowly bend
Behold, your king before Him lowly bend

Verse 3:
Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love, and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever
His power and glory ever more proclaim

[E7] Sleep in heavenly [A] peace,
Sleep in [E7] Heavenly [A] peace.

[A] Silent night, Holy night
[E7] Shepherds quake [A] at the sight.

[E7] Christ the Savior is [A] born;
Christ the [E7] Savior is [A] born.

[A] Silent night, Holy night,
[E7] Son of God [A] loves pure light,
[D] Radiant beams from thy [A] holy face,
[D] with the dawn of re [A] deeming grace,
[E7] Jesus Lord at thy [A] birth,
Jesus [E7] Lord at thy [A] birth.

The First Noel

The first Noel the angel did say, [C] [Am] [G] [F] [C] [F] [C]
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay; [F] [C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [G7] [C]
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep [C] [Am] [G] [F] [C] [F] [C]
On a cold winters night that was so deep [F] [C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [G7] [C]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel [C] [Em] [F] [C] [G]
Born is the King of Israel. [F] [G] [F] [C] [F] [G] [C] [G7] [C]

They looked up and saw a star, Shining in the East, beyond them far;
And to the earth it gave good light;
And so it continued both day and night.

This star drew nigh to the North West, O'er Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Then enter'd in there Wise Men three Full rev'rently on bended knee, And
offered there in His presence Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.

Up On The Housetop

Up on the housetop, reindeer pause [D]
Out jumps good ol' Santa Claus [G] [D] [A]
Down through the chimney with lots of toys [D]
All for the little ones, Christmas joys [G] [D] [A7] [D]

Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn't go? [G] [D]
Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn't go? [A7] [D]
Up on the housetop, click, click, click. [D] [G]
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick [D] [A7] [D]

First comes the stocking of little Nell, O dear Santa, fill it well;
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries, One that will open and shut her eyes

Next comes the stocking of little Bill, Oh just see what a glorious fill.
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks, Also a ball and a whip that cracks.

What Child Is This

What Child is this, who laid to rest, [Em] [G] [D] [Bm]
On Mary's lap is sleeping? [Em] [Bm]
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet [Em] [G] [D] [Bm]
While shepherds watch are keeping? [Em] [B7] [Em]

This, this is Christ the King [Bm] [G] [D] [Bm]
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing. [Em] [Bm]
Haste, haste to bring Him laud, [Bm] [G] [D] [Bm]
The Babe, the Son of Mary. [Em] [B7] [Em]

Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear for sinners here,
The silent Word is pleasing. (repeat refrain)

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh;
Come, peasant king, to own Him.
The King of Kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone Him. (repeat refrain)

White Christmas

G C D G
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones I used to know
C
Where the tree tops glisten and children listen
G D
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
G C D G
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas with every Christmas card I write
C
May your days be merry and bright
G D G
And may all your Christmas's be white,
G D G
And may all your Christmas-es be white....

Winter Wonderland

[tacit] Sleigh bells [C] ring are you listenin'
In the [G7] lane snow is glistenin'
A beautiful sight were happy tonight
Walkin' in the winter wonder [C] land
Gone away is the blue bird
Here to [G7] stay is the new bird
He sings our love song as we go along
walkin' in the winter wonder [C] land

(Chorus:)
[E] In the meadow [B7] we can build [E] snowman
and pretend [B7] he is parson [E] Brown
[G] He'll say are you [D7] married
we'll say no [G] man
But you can do the [D7] job when you're in [G] town.
Later [C] on we'll conspire
as we [G7] dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we made
walkin' in a winter wonder [C] land.
[D7] Walkin' in a [G7] winter wonder [C] land.
