  A      Amaj7    D     Dmaj7  E   E6
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas
 A        Amaj7      D   Dmaj7 E E6
Let your hearts be light
Amaj7    F#m      D       Dmaj7    E   E7   A  Amaj7 D Dmaj7 E E6
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight                 

 A        Amaj7   D      Dmaj7 E   E6
Have yourself a merry little Christmas

(Bridge:)
Dmaj7    D6       C#m        Amaj7
Here we are as in olden days
      Bm7        Fdim   Amaj7 C#m7
Happy golden days    of yore
 F#m      Cdim           Amaj7      F#m
Faithful friends who are dear to us
        B7        Bm7-5      Fdim    E7 
Travel near to us      once more.

  A         Amaj7     D       Dmaj7  Fdim
Through the years we all will be together 
A      Amaj7    D    Dmaj7  E
If the fates allow;
 A      F#m    D    Fdim     E        F#m    F#m9    F#m  - F#m7
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
    Dmaj7     D6    Bm7-5   E     E6   E7
And have yourself a merry little Christmas
  A  Amaj7 A Amaj7 A A9 Amaj7
Now.


Had Judy Garland not balked at the idea, this song from the movie "Meet Me 
In St. Louis" might have been even bleaker, starting as "Have yourself a 
merry little Christmas, it may be your last...." The closing guitar run 
suggests the tune of "Jingle Bells."
