    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"
