Now, I'd like to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for helpin' my family gather around here today and puttin' all this great food on our table and I just hope He's just as generous to all the other fine country families out there on this special day.
We're havin' a country Christmas - I hope you'll have one too
Santa Claus is bakin' biscuits - what did he bake for you?
Daddy's got the fire a-blazin' - it's such a fine sight to see
Now all the cow hands are amazin' - and Santa left a gift for me
It's a country, country Christmas - people are gathered around
Country, country Christmas - baby Jesus is in town
And Santa gave Daddy some whiskey - an iron's what he gave to my mom
I promise ol' Kris Kringle - I write a song a night on my guitar
Turkey with all the fixins' - thank the Lord for all-a my food
For the wise men and the manger - to this game I'll always stay true
Well it's a country, country Christmas - sleigh bells and reindeer
Country, country Christmas - just good old family cheer
Look Daddy...Santa came down the chimney and he drank the milk and ate the cookies I left for him. Look, an iron for Maw, see that Daddy? Little whiskey for you...and even left a gift for me! Thank you, Santa...Merry Christmas!
