Old Christmas Card - Recorded by Jim Reeves

(I don't know who wrote the song.  I do it in the key of G
and in 4/4 time.)

           G                        C         G
There's an Old Christmas Card in an old dusty trunk
       D7                                 G
And it brings back sweet mem'ries dear to me
          G                       C               G
'Tho it's faded and worn, it's as precious as the morn
        D7                                 G
When I found it 'neath our first Christmas tree

[ Tab from: ]
  D7                            G
I thrill with every word, every line
          A7                             D7
Guess I'm always sentimental 'round this time
       G                    C                G
Pardon me if a tear falls among my Christmas cheer
         D7                         G
It's the mem'ry of an Old Christmas Card


You know, I don't know why I get to feeling sentimental

about this time, every year

But every time I see a Christmas card,

I somehow can't help reminiscing

About the very first Christmas that you and I spent together

What a beautiful Christmas card you gave me that year

Why I know you must have looked through thousands of cards

To find that wonderful poem that still brings a tear to my eyes

Repeat chorus
