The Christmas Tree That Ran Away Chords - The Caroleers


 
The Christmas Tree That Ran Away Chords
[Verse 1]
C                               G
He was just a little tree, kinda scrawny, kinda thin,
Am                              Em
and in that great big house, didn’t seem to fit in.
F                                       A7
On Christmas Eve he heard the mistress of that big ole house say,
D7                             Am               G
“That little tree is ugly. Get a new one right away!”

[Chorus]
C                       G
Nobody wants me, and tomorrow’s Christmas Day.
Am                      Em
Nobody needs me for the Christmas holiday.
F                       A7
Nobody loves me, and I have no place to stay.
D7               Am       G             C
Nobody wants me.       I’m going to run away!

[Verse 2]
C                                       G
The cold wind whistled and it howled as he trudged through the snow
Am                      Em
with ornaments a-janglin’ and icicles aglow
F                               A7
Passed factories and houses and the ole saw mill
D7                     Am                       G
when suddenly he saw the little cabin on the hill.

[Chorus]
C                       G
Nobody wants me, and tomorrow’s Christmas Day.
Am                      Em
Nobody needs me for the Christmas holiday.
F                       A7
Nobody loves me, and I have no place to stay.
D7               Am           G       C
Nobody wants me.           I’m going to run away!

[Verse 3]
C                               G
Through the window he could see little Tommy’s curly head,
Am                              Em
and he heard little Tommy prayin’ before he climbed in bed,
F                               A7
“We don’t expect presents, God, but maybe you could see
D7                      Am                              G
some way of getting us just a little Christmas tree.”

[Bridge]
C       G
Am      Em
F       A7
D7      Am      G       C

[Verse 4]
C                               G
The little gift-laden tree crept inside late that night,
Am                              Em
and next morning, he was greeted with squeals of delight.
F                               A7
“It’s a miracle!” they shouted, and he knew it was true
D7                      Am                              G
for he had found a home and a loving family, too.

[Chorus] 
C                       G
Somebody wants me, and today is Christmas Day.
Am              Em
Somebody needs me for a happy holiday.
F                       A7
Somebody loves me, and I have a place to stay.
D7                Am            G             C
Somebody loves me      and I’ll never run away!
