Intro:
G     -       G-C-Em-Am -  D   -

G         C
Amber called her uncle
Am                       D
Said "We're up here for the holiday
G              C
Jane and I were having solstice
Am             D          -
Now we need a place to stay"
     G                C
And her Christ-loving uncle
  Am                   D              -
Watched his wife hang Mary from the tree
  G             C
He watched his son hang candy canes
Am                  D        -
All made with Red Dye Number 3
G                C
He told his niece, "It's Christmas Eve
Am                 D
I know our life is not your style"
G                        C
She said, "Christmas is like Solstice
    Am                       D         -
And we miss you, and it's been a while"

CHORUS:
      G              C               Am              D
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table
         G             C              Am               D
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
Em                 C
And just before the meal was served
   Am                   D
Hands were held and prayers were said
Em               C
Sending hope for peace on Earth
    Am                D
To all their gods and goddesses

(like first verse)
The food was great, the tree plugged in
The meal had gone without a hitch
'Till Timmy turned to Amber
And said, "Is it true that you're a witch?"
His mom jumped up and said, "The pies
Are burning," and she hit the kitchen
And it was Jane who spoke and said
"It's true your cousin's not a Christian
But we love trees, we love the snow
The friends we have, the world we share
And you find magic in your God
And we find magic everywhere

CHORUS: (like first chorus)
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
And where does magic come from?
I think magic's in the learning
'Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans
Only pumpkin pies are burning

When Amber tried to do the dishes
Her aunt said "Really, no, don't bother"
Amber's uncle saw how Amber
Looked like Tim and like her father
He thought about his brother
How they hadn't spoken in a year
He thought he'd call him up and say
"It's Christmas and your daughter's here"
He thought of fathers, sons and brothers
Saw his own son tug his sleeve
Saying, "Can I be a pagan?"
Dad said, "We'll discuss it when they leave"

CHORUS:
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
Lighting trees in darkness
Learning new ways from the old
Making sense of history
And drawing warmth out of the cold

End like the intro but if it
doesn't sound right it's because this
time it's played with a mandolin. So
Unless you have a mandolin, forget it.
