Blue Christmas

Elvi

    **Capo 2 for the key Elvis recorded it in**

            D                 A
I'll have a blue Christmas without you
           A7                  D
I'll be so blue just thinking about you
    Am         D        G                 (walkdown)
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
E                           A                   A7
Won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me

               D                     A
And when those blue snowflakes start fallin'
                  A7                  D
That's when those blue memories start callin'
          Am      D               G            E7
You'll be doin' alright with your Christmas of white
    A                                 D
But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas


Instrumental: D  A  A7  D


          Am7     D               G            E7
You'll be doin' alright with your Christmas of white
    A                                 D
But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas



*Walkdown is optional, G-F#-F-E using bar chords

There is a 3rd verse in some recordings of this song:

I'll have a blue Christmas that's certain
And when that blue heartache starts hurtin'
You'll be doin' all right, with your Christmas of whiteH
But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas
