1. It’s Christmas Time

John Cee Stannard  (CastIron Music / Stannard)

It’s Christmas time let me tell you ‘bout the Christmases I’ve had
It’s Christmas time let me tell you ‘bout the Christmases I’ve had
Some of them were lonesome, some of them were oh so sad

It’s Christmas time, you’re not here, and I feel so all alone
It’s Christmas time, and you’re not here, I feel so all alone
At Christmas time, you know you should be back home.

Christmas, it’s time for the family
Christmas, it’s time for the family
Chistmas time,   is all about you and me

Repeat all three

2. Beggin’ Santa Claus

B.K. Turner         Arr.John Cee Stannard  (CastIron Music / Stannard)

Santa Claus, what are you gonna bring
Santa Claus, what are you gonna bring
If you ain’t gonna bring my baby, don’t bring me a doggone thing

You know I love her Santa Claus, why don’t you bring her home
Yes I love her Santa Claus, why don’t you bring her home
If you bring her back to me, I will never do her wrong

Oh Lord it’s Christmas time, and I want to see my baby once more
It’s Christmas time, and I want to see my baby once more
I ask me baby to come home for Christmas she said go and speak to old Santa Claus

Please Santa Claus, you know it’s almost Christmas time
Please please Santa Claus, you know it’s almost Christmas time
I’m looking for you Christmas morning, before I lose my mind

I’m gonna buy me a Shepherd dog, keep him at my door
I’m gonna buy me a Shepherd dog, keep him at my door
And he’s gonna follow my baby, everywhere she goes

3. Let Me Go Home It’s Christmas

S Henry       Arr.John Cee Stannard  (CastIron Music / Stannard)

Let me go home whisky, let me walk out that door
Let me go home whisky, let me walk out that door
It’s Christmas morning and I need to see my baby once more

Let me go home whisky, let me walk out of this room
Let me go home whisky, let me walk out of this room
If I leave right now it won’t be a moment too soon

Let me go home whisky, before I’m needing that bail
Let me go home whisky, before I’m needing that bail
Don’t want to spent another Christmas morning in jail

Let me go home whisky, let me walk out of that door
Let me go home whisky, let me walk out of that door
It’s Christmas morn I need to go and see my baby once more

Let me go home whisky, let me walk out of that door
Let me go home whisky, let me walk out of that door
It’s Christmas morn I need to go and see my baby once more

Let me go home whisky, let me go before I fall
Let me go home whisky, let me go before I fall
She said if you don’t get home for Christmas  –
Don’t you bother coming home at all

4. Christmas On My Own

John Cee Stannard  (CastIron Music / Stannard)

The road seems long and lonesome, the sky is dark and cold
Freedom’s not such a pretty word, when you’re free and on your own
I think of you at your fireside,   keeping yourself warm
Don’t wanna spend, another year, at Christmas on my own

You can be on your own in the Springtime
And the Summer when it’s warm and clear
But when you’re alone at Christmas
It’s the worst time of the year

This road keeps getting longer, and more lonesome as time goes by
I know I should settle down, and I believe I’m gonna try
I’m packing up my suitcase, making my way home
Ain’t gonna spend even one more year, at Christmas on my own

Instrumental Break

You can be on your own in the Springtime
And the Summer when it’s warm and clear
But when you’re alone at Christmas
It’s the worst time of the year

I sometimes wonder, what goes on in my mind
Why did I ever go out on my own, leaving you behind
I remember times together, now I’m here alone
Don’t wanna spent, another year, at Christmas on my own
Don’t wanna spend even one more year, at Christmas on my own

5. Winter Love

John Cee Stannard  (CastIron Music / Stannard)

April sings a song of spring, she knows what the summer will bring
She sees it every year
And when autumn sang of a chill, my heart was warming still
Burning with Winter Cheer

That was when our love began, with snowball fights and nights that ran
Well into the early hours, a winter love, for ever ours

And I promised you then, as each season ends
A new one will unfold
In all its glory, revealing our love story
May it be for ever told

Telling how our love began, with snowball fights and nights that ran
On into the wee small hours, a winter love, forever ours

That was when our love began, with snowball fights and nights that ran
Way beyond the midnight hour, A winter love, forever ours

When April sang her song of spring, knowing that summer would bring
A warmth from the sun above
And then when autumn brought her chill, my heart was warming still
Burning with our winter love

Burning with winter love
