VERSE 1

  G               D G 
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree

     Am             D7 G     
Your branches green delight us.

                  D G 
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, 

     Am             D7 G 
Your branches green delight us.

                   C      D7  
They're green when summer days are bright;

                          G 
They're green when winter snow is white.

                  D G         E7 
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, 

     Am             D7 G 
Your branches green delight  us.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, 

    Am         D7   G  
You give us so much pleasure!

                  D G 
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, 

    Am         D7   G 
You give us so much pleasure!

           C         D7 
How oft at Christmas tide the sight,

                        G 
O green fir tree, gives us delight!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, 

    Am         D7   G 
You give us so much pleasure!
