But do you recall

               A7                       D7

The most famous reindeer of all?

 

w/strum pattern:

  G (3)

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

                           D

Had a very shiny nose

 D (3)

And if you ever saw it

                                  G

You would even say it glows

G (3)

All of the other reindeer

                                        D

Used to laugh and call him names

    D (3)

They never let poor Rudolph

                               G

Join in any reindeer games

 

    C                      G

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

  C                   G

Santa came to say:

   D (2)

"Rudolph with your nose so bright

   A7                         D7

Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

    G (3)

Then how the reindeer loved him.

                                       D

As they shouted out with glee:

   D (3)

"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

                                 G (hold 3rd beat)

You'll go down in history"
