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'.

    This is the first time I’ve ever heard this song, and it’s wonderful! Thank you so much for another lesson!
    I can keep pace (sort of) for the first part of the song, but the part with the double stings (is it the chorus?) I kind of lose it 🙂 but it’s great to have something to work on!
    Thank you, Mr. Cockman (and your family) for all the work you’re putting into these lessons!

    Thank you, Gu and Kaeleigh! This song is a little tough, but great practice for playing a fast song in the key of E.
