Christmas BluesWords & Music by Sammy Cahn & David Holt
Recorded by Dean Martin, 1953
D Dsus4 D Em F#m G6 The jingle bells are jinglin', the streets are white with snow, D Dsus4 D Em D7 D6 Am Am7 D9 The happy crowds are minglin' but there's no one that I know; G7 Edim G7 G D F#7 B7 I'm sure that you'll forgive me if I don't enthuse -- G Em7 Edim A7 F#7 B7 G/B A7 I guess I've got the Christ - mas blues. D Dsus4 D Em F#m G6 I've done my win - dow shopping, there's not a store I've missed; D Dsus4 D Em D7 D6 Am Am7 D9 But what's the use in stopping when there's no one on your list? G7 Edim G7 G D F#7 B7 You'll know the way I'm feeling when you love and you lose -- G Em7 Edim A7 D Bm7 I guess I've got the Christ - mas blues. F#7 B7 F#7 B7 When somebody wants you, somebody needs you, Em Am7 Em Christmas is the joy of joys; C#7 F#m C#7 F#m But friends, when you're lonely, you find that it's only F#m7 B7 E7 A7 A thing for little girls and little boys. D Dsus4 D Em F#m G6 May all your days be merry, your seasons full of cheer, D Dsus4 D Em D7 D6 Am Am7 D9 But 'til it's Jan - u - ar - y, I'll just go and dis - ap - pear; G7 Edim G7 G D F#7 B7 Ol' Santa may have brought you some stars for your shoes -- G G/F# E7 Bm7-5 F#7 But Santa only brought me the blues; E7/9 E7 Cdim Bm7-5 G/B A7 D Those brightly - packaged, tinsel - covered Christ - mas blues.
