Twas A DYLAN NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS With apologies to Bob Dylan & Clement Clarke Moore Monday, December 24, 2007 by Wade Farlowe (Capo 2nd Fret) G Em C G 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Am C D Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; G Em C G The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, Am D In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; D7 Gmaj7 D Then you'd better start sleeping or he'll pass by your home G C D G For Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G The children were nestled all snug in their beds, Am C D While visions of video games danced in their heads; G Em C G And mamma in her pj's, cause I'm such a sap, Am D Had just settled down for a long winter's nap, D7 Gmaj7 D For the loser now will be later to win G C D G For Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, Am C D I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. G Em C G Away to the window I flew like a flash, Am D Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. D7 Gmaj7 D It soon shook my windows with a rattle in my room G C D G ...... Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Am C D Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, G Em C G When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, Am D But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, D7 Gmaj7 D Please rub my eyes if you could lend me your hand G C D G ...... Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G With a little old driver, so lively and quick, Am C D I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. G Em C G More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, Am D And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; D7 Gmaj7 D I must be dreamin', I can't believe my ears G C D G For Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G "Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen! Am C D On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen! G Em C G To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Am D Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!" D7 Gmaj7 D So, you'd better go to bed, better get there fast G C D G For Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, Am C D When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, G Em C G So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, Am D With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too. D7 Gmaj7 D So, I'd better stop creepin' or old Santa won't stop by G C D G ...... Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof Am C D The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. G Em C G As I drew in my hand, and was turning around, Am D Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. D7 Gmaj7 D Now I'd better start hidin' and not make any sound G C D G ...... Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, Am C D And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; G Em C G A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, Am D And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. D7 Gmaj7 D He knows when we're sleepin' and knows when we're awake G C D G For Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! Am C D His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! G Em C G His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, Am D And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow; D7 Gmaj7 D Now I'd better start hidin' and not make any sound G C D G For Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, Am C D And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath; G Em C G He had a broad face and a little round belly, Am D That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly. D7 Gmaj7 D I don't think those cookies and milk will be enough G C D G Now Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, Am C D And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; G Em C G A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Am D Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; D7 Gmaj7 D Cause the younguns' were now laying fast asleep G C D G Now Christmas Times a comin' G Em C G He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, Am C D And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, G Em C G And laying his finger aside of his nose, Am C D And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; G Em C G He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, Am D And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. D7 Gmaj7 D But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, G C D G "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."
