I am thankful to have found this song for my Christmas party next week, however, I just couldn’t get it match up with any version of this song that I know of. It was perfect for the first verse and the first chorus, but after that I am lost. Can you lead me to the right direction, or refer me to the version of the song that this SNG is based on? Thanks a bunch.

I could not find out who this particular version was recorded by and that’s why I posted it as “various artists.” All I could find was that it was written by American composer Johnny Marks.

Let me see if I can work up a Brenda Lee version.

Brenda Lee


  • Written in Ab by Johnny Marks and recorded by Brenda Lee in the same key; use CAPO 1 to play using G shape chords
  • What’s updated? Different source file; lowered velocities; refreshed cheat sheet (and in the right key this time :grinning:).
  • Link (in blue font) to new user resources
