Grateful for Christmas  Hayes Carll

Capo- II
[G]Well we'd all head to Waco, for the birth of our Lord
[C]My folks and my brother in an 82 Ford
[D]We'd pull in the driveway filled up with cars
[C]Old aunts and old uncles, L[D]ord I see stars
[G]And then we'd run to the kitchen, you know kids and their games
[C]Play fetch with old Buster, call each other names
[D]Aunt Betty'd be singing while supper was cookings
[C]We'd unwrap the gifts w[D]hen no one was lookin
[C]Let's all gather [G]round, G[C]randpa say the ble[G]ssing
[C]Aunt Jane, she fell [G]asleep, M[G]ary Kay burned the d[D]ressing
[C]But we got all our friends and [G]family here
[C]And I'm grateful for [D]Christmas this y[G]ear
[G]Well this year we're in Houston, lets all get together
[C]Man I almost snow can you believe this weather
[D]Who's gonna be here, Uncle Frank can't make it
[C]Since Grandpa died, [D]I don't know if Nana can take it
[G]Well this present's a sweater and the pie don't taste right
[C]And Dad and the TV are starting to fight
[D]I wish I had a drink or maybe a dozen
[C]Lord what I'd give for [D]one good lookin cousin
[C]So lets all gather[G] round,[C] dad you say the[G] blessing
[C]Aunt Jane, she fell[G] asleep,[G] Mary Kay burned the[D] dressing
[C]But we got all our friends and[G] family here
[C]And I'm grateful for[D] Christmas this[G] year
[G]Hey Mom how you doing, yeah I miss him too
[C]Nah the Christmas light don't make your hair look blue
[D]The cousins ain't coming Jon's overseas
[C]And I guess my wife loves her [D]folks more then me
[G]But the ladies from the church said, they might stop by
[C]I brought you this picture, ahh mama don't cry
[D]Let's play cards and watch the news channel
[C]I love you too, a[D]nd thanks for the flannel
[C]So lets all [G]gather round, [C]I gues I'll say the [G]blessing
[C]Aunt Jane, [G]she fell asleep, [G]I never cared for [D]dressing
[C]But we got all our friends and [G]family here
[C]And I'm grateful for [D]Christmas this [G]year
[C]Oh, I'm grateful for Chri[D]stmas this year[G]
