    / G/C - G - /

    It’s coming on Christmas

    / G/C - G - /
    They’re cutting down trees

    / G/C - G - /
    They’re putting up reindeer

    / G/C - G - /
    And singing songs of joy and peace

    / Em - - - / - - - - /
    Oh I wish I had a river I could skate

    / D - - - / Dsus4 – D - /

    away on

    But it don’t snow here

    / G/C - G - /
    It stays pretty green

    / G/C - G - /
    I’m going to make a lot of money

    / G/C - G - /
    Then I’m going to quit this crazy scene

    / D - - - / Dsus4 – D - /

    away on

    CHORUS:

    / C - - - / D - - - /

    I wish I had a river so long

    / G - - - / C – C/B - / Am - - - / - - - - /
    I would teach my feet to fly
    / G - - - - / D - - - - /

    Oh I wish I had a river I could skate

    / Cmaj7 - - - / - - - - /

    away on

     

     

    / - - - - /

    I made my baby cry

    Intro

     

    / G/C - G - /
    You tried hard to help me

    / G/C - G - /
    You know, you put me at ease

    / G/C - G - /
    And you loved me so naughty

    / G/C - G - /
    Made me weak in the knees

    / Em - - - / - - - - /
    Oh I wish I had a river I could skate

    / D - - - / Dsus4 – D - /

    away on

     

    / G/C - G - /
    I’m so hard to handle

    / G/C - G - /
    I’m selfish and I’m sad

    / G/C - G - /
    Now I’ve gone and lost the best baby

    / G/C - G - /
    That I ever had

    / Em - - - / - - - - /
    Oh I wish I had a river I could skate

    / D - - - / Dsus4 – D - /

    away on

     

    Chorus

     

    / - - - - /
    I made my baby say goodbye

    Intro

    / G/C - G - /

    It’s coming on Christmas

    / G/C - G - /
    They’re cutting down trees

    / G/C - G - /
    They’re putting up reindeer

    / G/C - G - /
    And singing songs of joy and peace

    / Em - - - / - - - - /
    Oh I wish I had a river I could skate

    / D - - - / Dsus4 – D - /

    away on

     

    End on D
