Christmas Eve Can Kill You  The Everly Brothers

Written by Dennis Linde

[F] [G] [C] [F] [C] [F] [G]  
Verse 1:
[C]The winter's flaking [F]snow is brushin' [G]through the wiry [C]trees
I [F]stuff my hands down [C]deep inside my [G]coat
I [F]think of years a[G]go and half rem[C]embered Christmas [F]trees
And [C]faces that still [F]warm me with their [G]glow
The [C]cold and empty [F]evening hangs ar[G]ound me like a [C]ghost
I [F]listen to my f[C]ootsteps in the [G]snow
The [F]sound of one man [G]walking through the [C]snow can break your [F]heart
But [C]stopping doesn't [F]help, so on I'll [G]go
And [F]Christmas Eve can [Em]kill ya
When you're [F]trying to hitch a [G]ride to anywh[C]ere
Verse 2:
[C]The icy air I'm br[F]eathin's all that [G]keeps me on my [C]feet
I [F]feel like I've been w[C]alking all my l[G]ife
A [F]car goes runnin' [G]by; the man don't [C]even turn his [F]head
Guess he's [C]busy bein' [F]Santa Claus ton[G]ight
The [C]saddest part of [F]all is knowin' [G]if I switched with [C]him
I'd [F]leave him stumbling [C]ragged by the [G]road
I'd [F]ride that highway [G]to the arms of [C]my sweet fami[F]ly
And forg[C]et about the st[F]ranger in the [G]cold
And [F]Christmas Eve can [Em]kill ya
When you're [F]tryin' to hitch a [G]ride to anyw[C]here
Verse 3:
And [C]as I walk I'm s[F]inging to myself[G], Oh Silent[C] Night
[F]Hopin' I can [C]save those other [G]souls
Oh, [F]God forgive the [G]man that drives right [C]by the other [F]man
Take [C]pity on the st[F]ranger in the [G]cold
Cause [F]Christmas Eve can [Em]kill ya
When you're [F]tryin' to hitch a [G]ride to anyw[C]here
