Skip Ewing – “Christmas Carol”

G C
I was playin’ Santa Claus downtown on Christmas Eve
D G
When a little girl of 3 or 4 climbed up onto my knee
G C
I could tell she had a Christmas wish behind those eyes of blue
D G
So I asked her What’s your name and what can Santa do for you?

Chorus:
C G
She said, “My name is Christmas Carol, I was born on Christmas Day
C G A7 Daa
I don’t know who my daddy is and mommy’s gone awaye-
C G C,.-
All I want for Christmas is someone to take me home
D G
Does anybody want a Christmas Carol of their own?”

A D
Well all that I could say was Santa would do the best he could
E7 A
And I set her down and told her now remember to be good
A D
She said ‘” will” and walked away, turned to wave goodbye
E7 A
And I’m glad she wasn’t close enough to see old Santa cry

Chorus in A

Change to Key of B
B E
Early Christmas morning I got up and dialed the phone

And made a few arrangements at the County Children’s home

They told me it would be all right to pick her up today
F#7 B
Now my little Christmas Carol won’t ever have to say

Chorus in B
