G   Cadd9  (x4)
INTRO


G                 Cadd9
Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk,
G              Cadd9
At a christmas party
G                Em                  C           D
We were drinkin' champagne punch and homemade eggnog.
G                         Cadd9
Little sister brought her new boyfriend,
G        Cadd9
He was a Mexican.
G                      Em
We didn't know what to think of him,
        C               D              G   Cadd9  G  Cadd9
'Til he sang Feliz Navi Da, Feliz Navi Da.


G                       Cadd9
Brother Ken brought his kids with him.
G                  Cadd9
The three from his first wife Lynn,
G       G/F#  Em                      C                D 
And the two  identical twins from his second wife Mary-Nell.
G                         Cadd9
Of course, he brought his new wife Kaye,
G                   Cadd9
Who talks all about AA.
G     G/F#              Em             C     D
Chain smokin' while the stereo plays Noel, Noel.
            G   Cadd9  G   Cadd9
The First Noel.


D
Carve the turkey, turn the ball game on,
C
Mix margaritas when the eggnog's gone.
D
Send somebody to the Quik-Pak store,
C
We need some ice and an extension cord.
D
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rite,
C
A box of Pampers, some Marlboro Lights.
G    G/F#        Em
Hallelujah, everybody say cheese
      C                  D   G   Cadd9  G  Cadd9
Merry Christmas from the family.


G                        Cadd9
Fran and Rita drove from Harlingen,
G                        Cadd9
I can't remember how I'm kin to them.
G             G/F#                Em
But when they tried to plug their motorhome in,
     C                  D
They blew our christmas lights.
G                      Cadd9
Cousin David knew just what went wrong,
G                       Cadd9 
So we all waited out on our front lawn.
G            G/F#            Em
He threw the breaker and the lights came on,
       C           D             G     Cadd9
And we sang Silent Night, Silent Night.
           G    Cadd9
Oh, Holy Night.


D
Carve the turkey turn the ballgame on,
C
Make Bloody Marys cause we all want one.
D
Send somebody to the Stop 'n Go,
C
We need some celery and a can of fake snow.
D
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprite,
C
A box of Midol, some Salem Lights
G    G/F#        Em
Hallelujah, everybody say cheese.
      C                  D   G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9
Merry Christmas from the family

           G6
Feliz Navi Da.

One little nit pick... it is Feliz Navidad not Feliz Navi Da. Looks cool
otherwise.

Montgomery Gentry did this and so did the Dixie Chicks.

Robert Earl King wrote the song and does a great
version of it.
