Sharing This Christmas With The Blues

Long title! The holidays can be the worst time of all, or the best. I hope this shows it. Man, did Johnny and I fight over the phrasing on this guitar solo...

 

Don't worry about me
'Cause man, I'm doing fine
I got some luncheon meat
And some Mad Dog wine
Yeah I'm making merry, with my new friend
Who's come around to stay
I'll be sharing this Christmas with the blues

I was mistaken
To treat you so bad
You know your worst
Was the best I ever had
But I'm movin' on, I'm standin' tall
And I'm gonna have a ball
'Cause I'll be sharing this Christmas with the blues

Got me a Christmas tree from the five and dime
I've got my plans all made, we're gonna have a time
On Christmas morning, wonder if you'll be
Holding onto someone else and wishing it was me

Come home baby,
I know that I was wrong
I'll be a different man
Before New Year's comes along
Please forgive me, I'm sorry
I'll do anything you say
Don't want to be sharing this Christmas with the blues

My plastic fireplace is lighting up the room
The hot plate's sizzling, the Spam is cooking soon
You know it's party time, Santa's on his way
But what I really want, he won't have on his sleigh

Come home baby,
I know that I was wrong
I'll be a different man
Before New Year's comes along
Please forgive me, I'm sorry
I'll do anything you say
Don't want to be sharing this Christmas with the blues
