CHORDS

The tabs in PJVillanueva's excellent tab of this song reproduce the keyboard voicings perfectly 
(http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/p/paul_mccartney/wonderful_christmas_time_tab.htm). 
But I found it hard to accompany myself singing this song and simultaneously playing the chords 
on the higher frets. If you have the same problem this might be a solution:

VERSES/INTROS
         e-B-G-D-A-E
Amaj7    0-2-1-2-0-x
A6       2-2-2-4-0-x
E/A      0-0-1-2-0-x

"Ding dong" part #1
         e-B-G-D-A-E
A7       x-2-0-2-0-x
A6       x-2-2-4-0-x
A        x-2-2-2-0-x
D6       2-3-4-0-x-x

CHORUS/SOLO
The chords in the chorus and in the solo are not easy to play. But it is possible to leave 
all the jazzy options aside and play them straight. 
If you want to hear the voicings of the original, however, here are some suggestions:

         e-B-G-D-A-E
Bm7      2-3-2-4-2-x
E7/9     2-0-1-0-2-0
C#m7     4-5-4-6-4-x
F#m9     4-2-2-2-4-2
D        5-3-2-0-x-x
G(add9)  5-3-0-0-x-3
A        0-2-2-2-0-x

CODA
         e-B-G-D-A-E
Amaj7    4-5-6-7-0-x
Amaj13   7-7-6-6-x-5

or (easier)
         e-B-G-D-A-E
Amaj7    0-2-1-2-0-x
Amaj13   2-0-1-2-0-x
