"It's Starting to Feel Like Christmas!" "Merry Christmas, to one and all!!!"

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

This song is written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane in 1943.

Introduced by Judy Garland in the 1944 MGM musical "Meet Me in St. Louis".

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Let your heart be light

From now on, all our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Make the yuletide gay

From now on, our troubles will be miles away

Here were are as in olden days

Happy golden days of yore

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together

If the fates allow

Hang a shining star upon the highest bough

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Feedback is much appreciated. Thank you.

Really nice.

Keeping the arrangement sparse like this is a good example of how you can take what is usually a "piano song" and play it on guitar.

Have a Merry Christmas, Rene. Thanks for making my heart light with your wonderful performances this year. I hope to see lots more in the new year and beyond.

All the best. Have a safe and happy holiday.
