A road weary troubadour makes his Christmas wish in a Motel bar.

Lyrics

MAYBE CHRISTMAS
A
I write these lines at a bar on Christmas
Bm
Behind the eightball again
E
Pickin’ carols on a guitar
D A
For the bartender, my new found friend


Another motor lodge Christmas
Bm
On this never ending troubadours’ road
E
Someday I’m gonna hit the big time
D A
And ring in the holidays at home

A7 D
And then maybe christmas
A
Won’t be so lonesome and blue
E
I won’t need Jack or Johnnie Black
A
To give my wish list to

A7 D
And then maybe christmas
A F#m
Might maybe feel like it used to do
D
Home in your arms
E A
Where Christmas wishes come true




Time runs a race to december
Bm
Before you know it’s here
E
With resolutions half remembered
D A
Before I make them again next year


How you believe in me’s a mystery
Bm
When I’ve barely made a living so long
E
You’re the light that keeps the dream alive
D A
One day I’ll write that big Nashville song

(Chorus)

C D
Wonders can happen this time of year
C D
Stories have often been told
Cm F
Christmas is a time for miracles
Bm G E
Even in a bar this far from music row


A
So I write these lines in a bar on Christmas
Bm
And pray to the angels above
E
Send me a tune to make the whole world sing
D A
About the wonderful gift of your love



A7 D
And then maybe Christmas
A
Won’t be this sad lonely hue
E
I won’t need Jose or Johnnie black
A
To help me make it through


A7 D
And then maybe christmas
A F#m
Might maybe come wrapped in baby blue
Bm E A
Home in your arms where Christmas wishes come true
Bm E D A
Home in your arms where all my wishes come true
