The Christmas Song Ukulele Chords by Nat King Cole

by Per Kjeller

The Christmas Song Ukulele Chords by Nat King Cole. The chords in the song are Cmaj7, Dm7, Em7, and E7.

“The Christmas Song” (commonly subtitled “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” or, as it was originally subtitled, “Merry Christmas to You”) is a classic Christmas song written in 1945 by Robert Wells and Mel Tormé. The Nat King Cole Trio first recorded the song in June 1946. At Cole’s behest – and over the objections of his label, Capitol Records – a second recording was made in August utilizing a small string section. This version became a massive hit on both the pop and R&B charts.

And Emaj7folks dressed Fmin7up like EskiDmin7mos      G 

Everybody Cmaj7knows a Dmin7turkey and some Emin7mistleDmin7toe

C7They know that Gmin7Santa’s C7on his Fmaj7way

He’s loaded Gmin7lots of toys and C7goodies on his Fmaj7sleigh

And every Fmin7mother’s Bb7child is gonna Ebspy

To see if D7reindeer really know how to Gfly

And Cmaj7so I’m Dmin7offering this Emin7simple Dmin7phrase

To Cmaj7kids from Gmin7one to C7ninety-Fmaj7two

AminAlthough it’s been Fmin6said many Ctimes, many B7ways

Merry Emin7Chri – A7st – Dmin7mas    Gto Cyou.
