Intro:
Strumming A

Verse 1
[A]There was a baby Jesus
Many years ago
Rooming with the animals
[G]Cold but not much [A]snow
Laying near his mama
A cradle filled with hay
Not too many babies
[G]Come out that way to[A]day

{soc}Chorus 1
[D]Not much [C]Christmas [A]cheer
When [G]Jesus was [D]born that [A]year
[D]Wonder what he [C]thinks to[A]day
[G]Wonder [D]what he [C]hears [A] {eoc}

Verse 2
I wonder if he had an
Idea what was ahead
Cradled in a manger
[G]Hay mattress for a [A]bed
Simple scene before him
But with shepherds and with kings
Gifts they gave this baby
Or [G]so the carolers [A]sing

{soc} Chrous 2
A [D]simple [C]Christmas [A]scene
We [G]call the na[D]tivi[A]ty
[D]Hono[C]ring his [A]birth
And [G]what his [D]life would [C]be [A]{eoc}

Verse 3
Today we shop for presents
To give both young and old
Forgetting where it came from
[G]The story we’d been [A]told
About a baby in a manger
A simple holy scene
Somehow put into this world
And [G]whom the carolers [A]sing

{soc} Chorus 3
[D]Away [C]in a [A]manger
[G]About [D]Jesus’ [A]birth
[D]Joy [C]to the [A]world
[G]And [D]peace on [C]earth  [A] {eoc}
