G C G/B Am DG C Am DAmber called her uncle, said "We're up here for the holiday,G C Am D DJane and I were having Solstice, now we need a place to stay."G C Am DAnd her Christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang Mary on a tree,G C Am D DHe watched his son hang candy canes all made with red dye number three.G C Am DHe told his niece, "It's Christmas Eve, I know our life is not your style,"G C Am D DShe said, "Christmas is like Solstice, and we miss you and it's been awhile,"G C Am DSo the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,G C Am DFinding faith and common ground the best that they were able,G C Am DAnd just before the meal was served, hands were held and prayers were said,G C Am D DSending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses.G C Am DThe food was great, the tree plugged in, the meal had gone without a hitch,G C Am D DTill Timmy turned to Amber and said, "Is it true that you're a witch?"G C Am DHis mom jumped up and said, "The pies are burning," and she hit the kitchen,G C Am D DAnd it was Jane who spoke, she said, "It's true, your cousin's not a Christian,"G C Am D"But we love trees, we love the snow, the friends we have, the world we share,G C Am D DAnd you find magic from your God, and we find magic everywhere."G C Am DSo the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,G C Am DFinding faith and common ground the best that they were able,G C Am DAnd where does magic come from? I think magic's in the learning,G C Am D D'Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans only pumpkin pies are bur-ning.G C Am DWhen Amber tried to do the dishes, her aunt said, "Really, no, don't bother."G C Am D DAmber's uncle saw how Amber looked like Tim and like her father.G C Am DHe thought about his brother, how they hadn't spoken in a year,G C Am D DHe thought he'd call him up and say, "It's Christmas and your daughter's here."G C Am DHe thought of fathers, sons and brothers, saw his own son tug his sleeve, saying,G C Am D D"Can I be a Pagan?" Dad said, "We'll discuss it when they leave."G C Am DSo the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,G C Am DFinding faith and common ground the best that they were able,G C Am DLighting trees in darkness, learning new ways from the old, andG C Am D DMaking sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold.G C G/B Am D G
