Jim Henry - The Tree



Intro:
A chord diagramG+G
Verse 1:

The first one I remember
     A chord diagramC majorC                   A chord diagramG+G
Was about three times my size
A chord diagramD MajorD
We all stood there watching
   A chord diagramG+G
As Dad brought it inside
   A chord diagramC majorC
It took almost an hour
   A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramG+G
To stand it up just right
            A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramG+G
When he was done he held my Mama tight


Verse 2:

We made cookies and hot chocolate
      A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramG+G
Sewed popcorn on a string
        A chord diagramD MajorD
Cranked up the record player
             A chord diagramG+G
So Mom could sing along with Bing
        A chord diagramC majorC
We hung candy canes and ornaments
    A chord diagramG+G      A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramG+G
And tinsel liberally
               A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramG+G      A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramG+G
Turned off the light, plugged in the Christmas tree


Chorus:
         A chord diagramC majorC
We can't start until it gets here
             A chord diagramG+G
And we won't stop until it goes
     A chord diagramC majorC
It arrives on top of Dad's old Ford
         A chord diagramG+G               A chord diagramD MajorD
But only stays a week or so
         A chord diagramG+G
It's the one family tradition
   A chord diagramC majorC
On which we all agree
     A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramG+G
It's just not Christmas 'til we've got the tree


Verse 3:

We wrote down what we wanted
        A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramG+G
All the bikes and guns and games
    A chord diagramD MajorD
Mom set the list on fire
                A chord diagramG+G
Sent 'em up the chimney in flames
A chord diagramC majorC
Tucked us all in tight
             A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramG+G
Said, in the morning we will see
           A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramG+G
What Santa leaves under the Christmas tree


Chorus:
         A chord diagramC majorC
We can't start until it gets here
             A chord diagramG+G
And we won't stop until it goes
     A chord diagramC majorC
It arrives on top of Dad's old Ford
         A chord diagramG+G               A chord diagramD MajorD
But only stays a week or so
         A chord diagramG+G
It's the one family tradition
   A chord diagramC majorC
On which we all agree
     A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramG+G
It's just not Christmas 'til we've got the tree


Verse 4:

The tree looked different in the morning
        A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramG+G
All its promise was fulfilled
   A chord diagramD MajorD
Surrounded by our presents
     A chord diagramG+G
From floor to window sill
          A chord diagramC majorC
And after all the noise and Polaroids
    A chord diagramG+G         A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramG+G
And shouts of joyful glee
        A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramD MajorD         A chord diagramG+G
I fell asleep under the Christmas tree


Chorus:
         A chord diagramC majorC
We can't start until it gets here
             A chord diagramG+G
And we won't stop until it goes
     A chord diagramC majorC
It arrives on top of Dad's old Ford
         A chord diagramG+G               A chord diagramD MajorD
But only stays a week or so
         A chord diagramG+G
It's the one family tradition
   A chord diagramC majorC
On which we all agree
     A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD       A chord diagramG+G
It's just not Christmas 'til we've got the tree
