A                                D                  E
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
A                    D             E             D

VERSE 1:
             A                             D              E
It was the night before Christmas, it was love at first sight 
      A                                     E   
The carolers sang as they danced through the night
           A                         D        E
She was a small town girl, he was a traveling guy
           D                          E                A
He never caught her name before they said their goodbyes
A                            D           E
A couple years later he was out on the road
A                                   E
Having Christmas dinner in a diner alone 
       A                           D            E
When he saw a young waitress with a gleam in her eye
             D                              E            A
Her favorite day of the year she showed her spirits were high
         D                         A        
She said sir can you shed a little holiday cheer
  F#m                                E
A simple Christmas story was all she wanted to hear
              A                         D                      F#m   
He looked prepared with a smile as he started to say here's my favorite                          
E
Christmas story about a girl with no name
 
 
 
 
CHORUS 2:
A                                   D  E 
He said I met her up in Delaware in 1937
A                                D                E
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
A                    D            E           
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when I
              D                               E          A
finally gained the courage to ask her to dance
 
 
 
 
VERSE 2:
       A                      D                                            E
very holiday season as he traveled he'd 
E               A 
tell about his Christmas dance                            
E 
partner that he never knew well
       A                                D         E
He'd share his favorite story with the locals he met         
D                                E         A  
He was called the Christmas story tellin traveling man
A                 D            E  
By age 53 he had done settled down
A                                             E  
All the neighborhood kids liked to gather around
             A                                      D            E  
Just to listen to his stories about his life on the road
D                           E          A
All he had now were these children he told
      D                            A              
And every Christmas eve they showed up before dark
 F#m                                  E  
He'd tell them all the story but they knew it by heart
            A                             D          
They could quote it word for word, he always told it the same.
           F#m                                  E
It was his favorite Christmas story called the girl with no name
 
 
 
 
Verse  3:
A                        D             E
Twenty years later as he took his last breath
             A                          E
It was on a cold Christmas morning on a hospital bed
       A                      D        E
The children were grown, he had nobody left
             A                        E         A
Except the little old nurse who was holding his hand
        D                            A            
He said Ma'am can you share a little holiday cheer
    F#m                             E    
A simple Christmas story was all he wanted to hear
         A                             D          
But his eyes filled with tears at the words that she spoke
            F#m                              E            A
Because his favorite Christmas story was the one that she told
 
 
 
CHORUS 3:
            A                                         D   E 
She said I met him up in Delaware in 1937
          A                           D         E 
Though I never caught his name he was a traveling man
   A                 D      E 
December 24th at a quarter till eleven
        D                      E          A
I'm so glad he got the courage to ask me to dance.
