           A                             D              
It was the night before Christmas, it was love at first sight
    F#m                   E                     
The carolers sang as they danced through the night
           A                        D        
She was a small town girl, he was a traveling guy
   F#m                               E                
He never caught her name before they said their goodbyes

  A                         D           
A couple years later he was out on the road
F#m                          E
Having Christmas dinner in a diner alone
         A                          D            
When he saw a young waitress with a gleam in her eye
             F#m                            E
Her favorite day of the year she showed her spirits were high
         D                         A        
She said sir can you shed a little holiday cheer
  F#m                                E
A simple Christmas story was all she wanted to hear
          A                           D                        F#m       
He looked prepared with a smile as he started to say here’s my favorite 
                        A
Christmas story about a girl with no name

She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
A                  D            E                D

Every holiday season as he traveled 
                  F#m                             E
He tell about his Christmas dance partner that he never knew well

   A             D              
By age 53 he had done settled down
        F#m                        E  
All the neighborhood kids liked to gather around
        A                               D              
Just to listen to his stories about his life on the road
       F#m                A          
All he had now were these children he told
    D                         A              
And every Christmas eve they showed up before dark
   F#m                              E 
He tell them all the story but they knew it by heart
            A                         D            
They could quote it word for word, he always told it the same.
           F#m                                 A
It was his favorite Christmas story called the girl with no name

          A                         D  E
He said I met her up in Delaware in 1937
        A                       D                E
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
  A                D            E                D

Verse  3:
A                        D             
Twenty years later as he took his last breath
            F#m                         E
It was on a cold Christmas morning on a hospital bed
    A                           D        
The children were grown, he had nobody left
           F#m                        E
Except the little old nurse who was holding his hand
        D                            A              
He said Ma’am can you share a little holiday cheer
  F#m                               E      
A simple Christmas story was all he wanted to hear
         A                            D           
But his eyes filled with tears at the words that she spoke
                     F#m                     A
Because his favorite Christmas story was the one that she told

Outro:
           A                         D  E 
She said I met him up in Delaware in 1937
          A                             D         E 
Though I never caught his name he was a traveling man
  A                D            E 
December 24th at a quarter till eleven
        D                         E          A
I’m so glad he got the courage to ask me to dance.
