Intro:

E/B | A | G#m | Asus2
E/G# | C#m | A | B

When J[E/B]ack Frost came for Ch[A]ristmas [G#m]
With a brass monkey d[Asus2]ate
The r[E/G#]ail-king and the s[C#m]carecrow
Hopped a Fl[A]orida freight [A/F#]
And they bl[E/B]ew on their p[A]aper cups  [G#m]
And stared through the st[Asus2]eam
Then they dr[E/G#]ank half a b[C#m]ottle
Of R[A]agpicker's Dr[Fm]eam where

The wh[A6]iskey keeps fo[Am6]llowing
Cold p[B]itchers of b[E/G#]eer
[C#m]Me and my ass[E/B]ociate
Like the cl[Asus2]ientele here g[B]et
The [E/G#]onions and the 't[A]aters [G#m]
Rib-eyes on the gr[Asus2]ill
T[E/G#]oothpicks and l[C#m]uckies
And a c[A]offee r[A/F#]efill
E/B | A | G#m | Asus2
E/G# | C#m | A | B

As the r[E/G#]ail-king lay r[A]ocking [E/G#]
He was leaving the gr[Asus2]ound
Then he was fl[E/G#]ying like S[C#m]anta Claus [A]
Over the t[A/F]own where
He c[E/G#]ame to the w[A]indow  [E/G#]
Of a house by a str[Asus2]eam    [E/G#]
It was a family Chr[C#m]istmas
In the R[A]agpicker's Dr[A/F#]eam there

Were k[E/G#]ids at the t[A]able [E/G#]
All aglow in the l[Asus2]ight   [E/G#]
Music in the w[C#m]intertime
Sure c[A]arries at n[A/F#]ight there
Was t[E/G#]urkey and gr[A]avy
P[E/G#]ie and ice cr[A#m7/5-]eam
And g[E/B]ifts for each and [C#m]everyone
In the R[A]agpicker's D[F#m]ream where
The r[A6]ed-eye keeps t[Am6]umbling
In our gl[B]asses of b[E/G#]eer
[C#m]Me and my ass[E/B]ociate
Like the s[Asus2]ervice in h[B]ere there's
A t[E/G#]en for your tr[A]ouble [E/G#]
You have b[Asus2]eautiful hair
Make the l[E/G#]ast one two d[C#m]oubles
It's a c[A]old one out th[A/F#]ere where
The sc[E/G#]arecrow and the r[A]ail-king [E/G#]
Have started to d[Asus2]ance
But a n[E/G#]ightstick and a b[C#m]illyclub
Won't[A] give peace a ch[A/F#]ance here
I th[E/G#]ink they went th[A]ataways [E/G#]
Your song and dance t[A#m7/5-]eam
Heading h[E/B]ome for the h[C#m]olidays  [A]
With the Ragpicker's Dr[A/F#]eam on
His kn[E/B]ees like a f[A]ighter [E/G#]
The rail-riding k[Asus2]ing    [E/G#]
Like a sack of pot[C#m]atoes
Like a b[A]ull in the r[A/F#]ing where
The sc[E/G#]arecrow falls [A]over [E/G#]
With a tear in the s[A#7/5-]eam      [A6]
H[E/B]ome for the r[C#m]over
In the R[A]agpicker's Dr[A/F#]eam where
The r[A6]ed-eye keeps t[Am6]umbling
Like t[B]ears in our b[E/G#]eer
[C#m]Me and my ass[E/B]ociate
Like the [A]ambience h[B]ere where
They c[E/G#]ornered two c[A]astaways [E/G#]
In a white flashlight b[A#dim]eam     [A6]
E\B C#m
Merry Christmas and happy days
In the R[A]agpicker's Dr[A/F#]eam    [C6]
