    Honky Tonk Christmas

    (K. WILLIAMS, Z. TURNER, B. BROCK)

    "Pretty Paper" is playing on the jukebox
    And mistletoe is hanging above the bar
    I want to thank you for this
    Broken heart that I got
    Merry Christmas Girl
    Wherever in the world you are

    It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
    For these silent nights at home are killing me
    It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
    But I'll be over you by New Year's Eve
    "Blue Christmas" turn it up I wanna hear it
    So I can unwrap all them Mem'ries in my mind
    Hey Joe!! pour me some Christmas spirit
    If I make it through December I'll be fine

    It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
    For these silent nights at home are killing me
    It's going to be a honky tonk Christmas
    But I'll bi over you by New Year's Eve
    Yeah I'll be over you by
    New Years Eve

    The Angels Cried (with Allison Krauss)

    (Harley Allen, Debbie Nims)

    They came from near they came from far following a distant star to where he lay
    Not being sure of what it meant but knowing it was heaven sent they made their way
    And the creatures gathered round and didn't make a sound and the angels cried
    The angels knew what was to come the reason God had sent his son from up above
    It filled their hearts with joy to see and knowing of his destiny came tears of love
    And the creatures gathered round and didn't make a sound and the angels cried

    I've often thought about that night and wondered if they realized that star so bright
    Was sent to tell all the land the son of God would soon become the son of man
    And the creatures gathered round and didn't make a sound and the angels cried
    And the angels cried and the angels cried

    If We Make It Through December

    (Merle Haggard)

    If we make it through December
    Everything's gonna be all right I know
    It's the coldest time of winter
    And I shiver when I see the falling snow
    If we make it through December
    Got plans to be in a warmer town
    Come summer time
    Maybe even California
    If we make it through December
    We'll be fine

    Got laid off down at the factory
    And their timing's not the greatest
    In the world
    Heaven knows I've been working hard
    Wanted Christmas to be right
    For daddy's girl
    I don't mean to hate December
    It's meant to be this happy time of year
    And my little girl don't understand
    Why daddy can't afford no Christmas here

    If we make it through December
    Everything's gonna be all right I know
    It's the coldest time of winter
    And I shiver when I see the falling snow
    If we make it through December
    Got plans to be in a warmer town
    Come summer time
    Maybe even California
    If we make it through December
    We'll be fine...

    If You Don't Wanna See Santa Claus Cry

    Well I'm making out my list
    For ole St.Nick tonight
    But I'm afraid what I want this year
    Can't be had

    But Santa he's the kind
    When he makes up his mind
    Wishes can come true
    And I bet my Christmas stockin'
    If my wish don't come knockin'
    He's gonna be blue

    So baby come home
    If you don't wanna see Santa Claus cry
    He can't see where he's going
    When it's snowing
    If there tears in his eyes

    And don't you know his ho ho ho will be
    A sad sad sigh
    So baby come back to me
    If you don't wanna see Santa Claus cry

    And don't you know his ho ho ho will be
    A sad sad sigh
    So baby come back to me
    If you don't wanna see Santa Claus cry

    So baby come back to me
    If you don't wanna see Santa Claus cry

    Merry Christmas To Me

    (Alan Jackson)

    Today I took some paper from the closet
    And wrapped the wedding ring
    You left behind
    And I addressed it to the man
    Who vowed to love you
    And on the little card
    I wrote these words inside

    Merry Christmas to me
    Just one gift beneath my tree
    For the fool who let you leave
    Merry Christmas to me

    Then I sat down in my chair
    And thought about you
    About the many reasons why you're gone
    And I opened up the present that I gave to me
    And realized how much it hurts to be alone

    Merry Christmas to me
    Just one gift beneath my tree
    For the fool who let you leave
    Merry Christmas to me

    I'm the fool who let you leave
    Merry Christmas to me

    A Holly Jolly Christmas

    (J. Marks)

    Have a holly jolly Christmas
    It's the best time of the year
    Well I don't know if there'll be snow
    But have a cup of cheer

    Have a holly jolly Christmas
    And when you walk down the street
    Say hello to friends you know
    And everyone you meet

    Ho ho the mistletoe
    Hung where you can see
    Somebody waits for you
    Kiss her once for me

    Have a holly jolly Christmas
    And in case you didn't hear
    Oh bygolly have a holly jolly Christmas
    This year

    Have a holly jolly Christmas
    And when you walk down the street
    Say hello to friends you know
    And everyone you meet

    Have a holly jolly Christmas
    And in case you didn't hear
    Oh bygolly have a holly jolly Christmas
    This year

    There's A New Kid In Town (with Keith Whitley)

    (Curly Putman, Don Cook, Keith Whitley)

    We're looking for the King the new messiah
    We're following the star shining brighter
    Old man won't you help us if you can
    He shook his head but he pointed with his hand
    There's a new kid in town and he's lying in a manger down the road
    There's a new kid in town but he's just another baby I suppose
    Heaven knows there's a new kid in town here in Bethlehem

    I see you traveled far bearing treasures
    You say these gifts are for the new king's pleasures
    I've heard that a king might come but up till now there hasn't been one
    There's a new kid in town...
    There's a new kid in town...

    Santa's Gonna Come In A Pickup Truck

    (Don Rich, Red Simpson)

    Well I've been sorta worried
    About Santa Claus this year
    Cause we live way down south
    And it didn't snow down here
    But I'm telling you not to worry
    Cause I just got the word
    Everybody listen closely
    And I'll tell you what I heard

    Santa's comin in a pickup
    Instead of his trusty sleigh
    He'll have a truck instead of reindeer
    To carry him on his way
    Cause the weatherman had some problems
    He couldn't get snow you see

    Santa's gonna come in a pickup truck
    When he visits you and me

    Santa can't bring his reindeer
    He'll leave them far away
    But don't you worry 'bout him
    He's gonna be here Christmas day
    He's got a big red pickup
    With four-wheel drive and all
    And there's gonna be a Merry Christmas
    A Merry Christmas for all

    Santa's gonna come in a pick up truck
    When he visits you and me

    Please Daddy (Don't Get Drunk This Christmas)

    (BILL DANOFF, TAFFY NIVERT)
    "Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
    I don't want to see my Momma cry
    Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
    I don't want my Momma cry

    Just last year when I was only seven
    Now I'm almost eight, as you can see
    You came home a quarter past eleven
    And fell down underneath
    Our Christmas tree

    "Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
    I don't want to see my Momma cry
    Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
    I don't want to see my Momma cry

    "Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
    I don't want to see my Momma cry
    Please Daddy don't get drunk this Christmas
    I don't want to see my Momma cry

    Mama smiled and looked
    Outside the window
    She told me son
    You better go upstairs Then you laughed and hollered
    "Merry Christmas"
    I turned around and saw
    My Momma's tears
    Everybody sing now...
    No,I don't want to see my Momma cry
