CHRISTMAS MUST BE TONIGHT- The Band

G  Em  G  Em
                    G                      Am
Come down to the manger, see the little stranger
  C                     D                     G
Wrapped in swaddling clothes, the prince of peace
                G                     Am
Wheels start turning, torches start burning
         C              D              G
And the old wise men journey from the East

CHORUS:
        Em         D              C             G
How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
            Am
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
                              D    G
This must be Christmas, must be tonight

A shepherd on a hillside, while over my flock I bide
Oh a cold winter night a band of angels sing
In a dream I heard a voice saying "fear not, come rejoice
It's the end of the beginning, praise the new born king"
CHORUS

I saw it with my own eyes, written up in the skies
But why a simple herdsmen such as I
And then it came to pass, he was born at last
Right below the star that shines on high
CHORUS
