Video #1: Here is a video of my daughters and me performing the Christmas song "Christmas Time's A-Comin'."
"Christmas Time's a Coming" is a popular bluegrass Christmas standard song written by Bell Labs engineer Benjamin "Tex" Logan.
Originally recorded by Bill Monroe in 1951, the song was covered in 1994 by American country music singer Sammy Kershaw on his album of the same name, charting in 1995 and 1998 on the Billboard country charts, respectively reaching #50 and #53 those years.
Christmas Time's a Comin' (chords and lyrics) E B Snowflakes falling, my old home's a calling E B E Tall pines are humming Christmas time's a comin'. Refrain: E A Can't you hear them bells ringin' bringin' joy to all hear them singin' E B E When it's snowing I'll be going back to my country home E B Christmas times a' comin', Christmas times a' comin' E B E Christmas times a' comin' and I know I'm going home. Holly's in the window. Home's where the wind blows Can't walk for running, Christmas time's a comin'. Home fire is burning, my heart's a yearning For the folks at home when Christmas time's a comin'.
