C – G/B – Am – G/B
C – G/B – Em – D
C – G/B – Am – G/B 
C/A – Bm – C

     G/D   C       D      Em
The family car, we barely fit
G         C        D      Em
Christmas time had come again
G       C     D         Em      D
Bundled up to fight the freeze
C               D      G
Picking out the family tree

     G/D  C        D      Em
We'd decorate with clumsy hands
    G        C     D      Em
In hope that Santa comes again
     G     C        D       Em   D
And in the morning, wake to see
C                 D      G
Gifts beneath the family tree

      D           G    G/B  C
And I don't know where I'm going
      D       G   G/B  C
But I do know who I'll be
          D        G      G/B  C           C/B     Am
These memories and names, like leaves, all hang on us
       D   G
The family tree

C – G/B – Am – G/B  C/A – Bm – C

      G/D   C        D        Em
We're older now, we all have changed
    G      C            D        Em
But we all laugh at the same old things
      G         C          D     Em    D
We'll spend the night with memories
C                   D      G
Gathered 'round the family tree

      D          G     G/B  C
And I don't know where I'm going
      D        G   G/B C
But I do know who I'll be
          D        G      G/B  C           C/B     Am
These memories and names, like leaves, all hang on us

       C      G/B       Am           G         D     D C/D D
We're so much more than blood, we're more than names
      G        G/B        C    C/B    Am
We're bound by bonds that only God sustains
         C       G    G Am G/B      C          G
But this time of year            we all gather here
      Am       C      D
And I always know I'm home

          G/D    C         D       Em
There are voices now where silence was
     G      C        D      Em
The subtle signs of growing up
      G/D    C     D        Em      D
Where one is born, another leaves
C                D     G
Branches on the family tree

C – G/B – Am – G/B
C – G/B – Em – D
C – G/B – Am – G/B 
C/A – Bm – G
