[C]           [C/A]     [C/F]             [G]        
(Play "Jingles Bells" melody using the C chord)

It's com[Dm/C]ing on Christmas   [C]
They're [Dm/C]cutting down trees [C]
They're [Dm/C]putting up reindeer[C]
And sing[Dm/C]ing songs of joy an[C]d peace
Oh I wis[Am]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on
But it d[Dm/C]on't snow here     [C]
It stays[Dm/C] pretty green      [C]
I'm goin[Dm/C]g to make a lot of [C]money
Then I'm[Dm/C] going to quit this[C] crazy scene
I wish I[Am] had a river
I could [G]skate away on
I wish I[F] had a river so long  [G]
I would [C]teach my feet to fly        [F]    [Em]     [Dm]
Oh I wis[C]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on   [Fm]
I made my baby cry      [C]

He tried[Dm/C] hard to help me   [C]
You know[Dm/C], he put me at ease[C]
And he l[Dm/C]oved me so naughty [C]
Made me [Dm/C]weak in the knees  [C]
Oh I wis[Am]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on
I'm so h[Dm/C]ard to handle      [C]
I'm self[Dm/C]ish and I'm sad    [C]
Now I've[Dm/C] gone and lost the [C]best baby
That I e[Dm/C]ver had            [C]
Oh I wis[Am]h I had a river
I could [G]skate away on
I wish I[Fm] had a river so long    [G]
I would [C]teach my feet to fly        [F]    [Em]     [Dm]
Oh I wis[G]h I had a river [Fm]
I made my baby say goodb[C]ye
It's com[Dm/C]ing on christmas   [C]
They're [Dm/C]cutting down trees [C]
They're [Dm/C]putting up reindeer[C]
And sing[Dm/C]ing songs of joy an[C]d peace
I wish I[Am] had a river
I could [G]skate away on
