A                     A7                    D
City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style;

        E             E7          A          Edim  -  E7
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas.

          A               A7                D   
Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile,

        E7                          A   Edim   E7
And on every street corner you'll hear.


 A             D             E                          A   Edim  E7
Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city.

A             D                E                         A   Edim   E7
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring ? soon it will be Christmas day.


Strings of street lights, even stop lights,

 twinkle bright red and green,

As the shoppers rush home with their treasures.

Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch,

 this is Santa's big scene,

And above all this bustle you'll hear.


Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city.

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring ? soon it will be Christmas day.


Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city.

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring ?

E            E7           F#m  -  F#m7
Soon it will be Christmas day.

E            E7            A
Soon it will be Christmas day.
