Capital Lights - His Favorite Christmas Story

Chorus 1: 
     A                       D  E
He met her up in Delaware in 1937
A                                D                  E
She was wearing red lipstick to match her pretty dress
A                    D             E             D                        
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when he finally gained the 
            E
courage to ask her to dance

A    D  E   (3X)   D  E A   (1x)

Verse 1:
             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                        A                      A  D A
He never caught her name before they said their goodbyes
A                            D           
A couple years later he was out on the road
F#m                           D      
Having Christmas dinner in a diner alone
         A                           D            
When he saw a young waitress with a gleam in her eye
             F#m                             A             
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

 
Chorus  2:
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           A
December 24th at a quarter till eleven is when I               
                               E          A
finally gained the courage to ask her to dance

A  E A


Verse 2:
       A                      D                                            
Every holiday season as he traveled he’d 
                F#m 
tell about his Christmas dance 
                 E           
partner that he never knew well
       A                                D         
He’d share his favorite story with the locals he met
         F#m                               A           
He was called the Christmas story telling traveling man

A    E   A

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                         E          
All he had now were these children he told
      D                            A              
And every Christmas eve they showed up before dark
 F#m                               E             
He’d 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


Chorus  2

F#m   A    E  (3X)       E   E

Verse  3:
A                        D             
Twenty years later as he took his last breath
             F#m                        D        
It was on a cold Christmas morning on a hospital bed
       A                      D        
The children were grown, he had nobody left
             F#m                      A
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                              D           
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


Chorus 3:
            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
        A                      E          A
I’m so glad he got the courage to ask me to dance.
