 CC/AC/FG
(Play "Jingles Bells" melody using the C chord)

 Dm/CC
It's coming on Christmas    
 Dm/CC
They're cutting down trees  
 Dm/CC
They're putting up reindeer 
 Dm/CC
And singing songs of joy and peace
 Am
Oh I wish I had a river
 G
I could skate away on
 Dm/CC
But it don't snow here      
 Dm/CC
It stays pretty green       
 Dm/CC
I'm going to make a lot of money
 Dm/CC
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
 Am
I wish I had a river
 G
I could skate away on
 FG
I wish I had a river so long   
 CFEmDm
I would teach my feet to fly                  
 C
Oh I wish I had a river
 GFm
I could skate away on    
 C
I made my baby cry       

 Dm/CC
He tried hard to help me    
 Dm/CC
You know, he put me at ease 
 Dm/CC
And he loved me so naughty  
 Dm/CC
Made me weak in the knees   
 Am
Oh I wish I had a river
 G
I could skate away on
 Dm/CC
I'm so hard to handle       
 Dm/CC
I'm selfish and I'm sad     
 Dm/CC
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
 Dm/CC
That I ever had             
 Am
Oh I wish I had a river
 G
I could skate away on
 FmG
I wish I had a river so long     
 CFEmDm
I would teach my feet to fly                  
 GFm
Oh I wish I had a river  
 C
I made my baby say goodbye
 Dm/CC
It's coming on christmas    
 Dm/CC
They're cutting down trees  
 Dm/CC
They're putting up reindeer 
 Dm/CC
And singing songs of joy and peace
 Am
I wish I had a river
 G
I could skate away on
