Verse 1:
             G
It’s the news that no one hopes for,
          Em
Every parent's greatest fear
C
Finding out the child you love so much
                                                  G 
Might not make it through the year
                  G
Now the thought of spending Christmas
      Em
Without him just feels wrong
                         C
They’ve been praying for a miracle,
                                                            G
Now they're praying he can just hold on


Chorus:
       C2                           Em
For one last Christmas, one last time,
 C2                                     D                      
One last season when the world is right,
                 Em
One more telling of the story,
               D                         Em
One more verse of Silent Night,
                       C2                               D
They’d give anything so he could have
                  G
One last Christmas.

Verse 2:
   G
Middle of September
         Em
Still seventy degrees
           C2
Daddy climbs up in the attic

Brings down candles
                                             G
Hangs the lights on all the trees,
                G
Then the neighbors started asking
                Em
And pretty soon word got around
C2
First it was the neighborhood,
                                                              G
Before too long they lit up that whole town. 


Chorus:
       C2                          Em
For one last Christmas, one last time,
C2                                      D
One last season when the world is right,
                  Em
One more telling of the story,
                 D                          Em
One more verse of Silent Night,
                      C2                                D
They’d give anything so he could have
                       G
One last Christmas.


Verse 3:  
               G
Twenty-seventh of October,
       Em
His time was wearing thin
                    C2
Friends and family, even strangers
                                                                G
That they didn’t know brought presents in
               G
He was weak but he was smiling
          Em
Like there was nothing even wrong
          C2
They said he wouldn’t make it,
                                                    G
Looks like he got to see it after all


Chorus:
C2                              Em    
One last Christmas, one last time,
C2                                     D
One last season when the world is right,
                 Em
One more telling of the story,
                   D                      Em
One more verse of Silent Night,
                      C2                              D
They’d give anything so he could have
                 G
One last Christmas.
