BLUE CHRISTMAS    Time: 2/2    Key: C
- Billy Hayes, Jay Johnson, 1948
            1    *              57      *
I'll have a blue Christmas with-out you___

           2m7  57         1        *
I'll be so blue thinking a-bout you___

     5m 67       5m  67   2m              *
Deco-ra-tions of red on a green Christmas tree

27           *        57                   *
Won't mean a thing if you're not here with me
            1    *                 57      *
I'll have a blue Christmas, that's certain___

              2m7  57               1       *
And when that blue heartache starts hurtin'___

          5m 67      5m    67        2m           *
You'll be do-in' all right with your Christmas of white

    57          2m    57   1         *
But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas___
