I can not take credit for the following.  Someone else posted
it last year (sorry I don't have that person's name).
Best regards,

This is not straight off the record and I didn't compare the two.

The song is in 4/4 time.  Almost every note is an 1/8 note. When you see 0^2 it
means play the string open then quickly hammer on at the 2nd fret.  It is
called a grace note.  The hammer should fall on the beat.

Additional Lyrics
Verse2
Now we're all so proud of grandpa
He's been taking this so well
See him in there watching footbal
drinking beer and playing cards with Cousin Mel
It's not Christmas without Grandma
All the family's dressed in black
and we just can't help but wonder
Should we open up her gifts or send them back.

verse 3.
Now the goose is on the table
and the pudding made of fig
and the blue and silver candles
that would just have matched the hair on grandma's wig
I've warned all my friends and neighbors
better watch out for yourselves
they should never give a license
to a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves.


And yes, I can accept the Pack-Rat of the Year Award :>

        Do not save your loving speeches
        For your friends 'til they are dead;
        Do not write them on their tombstones,
        Speak them now instead.
