Song:   Christmas Eve Can Kill You
Artist: The Everly Brothers
Written by Dennis Linde


Intro:
C   F   G   C   F   C   G
F   G   C   F   C   F   G


Verse 1:
C                    F                G                C   
The winter's flaking snow is brushin' through the wiry trees
  F                   C              G
I stuff my hands down deep inside my coat
  F               G              C                 F
I think of years ago and half remembered Christmas trees
    C                F                  G
And faces that still warm me with their glow
    C              F               G              C
The cold and empty evening hangs around me like a ghost
  F             C               G
I listen to my footsteps in the snow
    F                G                   C                   F
The sound of one man walking through the snow can break your heart
    C                F                G
But stopping doesn't help, so on I'll go


Refrain:
    F                 Em
And Christmas Eve can kill ya
            F                 G            C
When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere


Verse 2:
C                 F                 G              C  
The icy air I'm breathin's all that keeps me on my feet
  F                    C              G
I feel like I've been walking all my life
  F                G                 C             F
A car goes runnin' by; the man don't even turn his head
           C          F              G
Guess he's busy bein' Santa Claus tonight
    C               F              G                  C 
The saddest part of all is knowin' if I switched with him
    F                   C             G
I'd leave him stumbling ragged by the road
    F                 G              C            F
I'd ride that highway to the arms of my sweet family
        C              F             G
And forget about the stranger in the cold


Refrain:
    F                 Em
And Christmas Eve can kill ya
            F                 G           C
When you're tryin' to hitch a ride to anywhere


Verse 3:
    C              F               G          C 
And as I walk I'm singing to myself, Oh Silent Night
F            C                G
Hopin' I can save those other souls
    F               G                     C            F
Oh, God forgive the man that drives right by the other man
     C             F             G
Take pity on the stranger in the cold


Refrain:
      F                 Em
Cause Christmas Eve can kill ya
            F                 G           C
When you're tryin' to hitch a ride to anywhere
