(Play that whole tab 2 times for the intro)

VERSE 1:  (Palm-mute the chords. There's a note picked 3 times in between each chord. It's an open-D)
G5                               E5                                  
   Outside the carolers start to sing, 
                              C5                                       D5
I can't describe the joy they bring, cause joy is something they don't bring me.
G5                        E5
   My girlfriend is by my side,
                                    C5                                  D5
from the roof are hanging cicles of ice, they're whining voices get irritating.

INTERLUDE:  (Just play pretty fast an open G-string)

VERSE 2:  (Play like verse 1)
So I stand with a dead smile on my face, wondering how much of my time they'll waste
Oh God, I hate these Satan's helpers.
And then I guess I must have snapped, because I grabbed the baseball bat,
and made them all run for shelter.

CHORUS:
               G5      D5         E5                     C5               G5
It's Christmas time   again, it's time to be nice to the people you can't stand,
    D5        E5               C5                 G5         D5               E5
all year, I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer. You people scare me, 
       C5                G5       D5                       E5         C5
please stay away from my home, if you don't wanna get beat down, just leave the
              D5            G5     <-- (On that G5, go back to intro)
presents, and then leave me alone.

INTERLUDE:  (Play the intro on 2 times)

VERSE 3:  (Play like previous verses)
Well I guess it's not cool to freak on Christmas Eve, 
cause the cops came and arrested me, they had an unfair advantage.
And even though, the jail didn't have a tree,
Christmas came a night early, cause a guy named Bubba unwrapped my package.

CHORUS:  (Play like first chorus)
It's Christmas time, again, it's time to be nice to the people you can't stand,
all year, I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer. You people scare me, 
please stay away from my home, if you don't wanna get beat down, just leave 
the presents, and then leave me alone.

#3t1#OUTRO:  (This is bass playing, and it's something like this)
   G5             A             B             G
#3t2#G|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|

G5           A        B            G
  I won't be home,      I won't be home for Christmas.
G5           A        B            G
  I won't be home,      I won't be home for Christmas.
(Then here singing something with Mark, and whoever is singing this
 just keep playing the "I won't be home, I won't be home for christmas" part. It 
 sound like he's saying "he broke my leg," so I'll just put that for now)
                G5           A        B            G
                  I won't be home,      I won't be home for Christmas.
(He broke my leg)                                       (he broke my leg)
G5           A        B            G
  I won't be home,      I won't be home for Christmas.
                                              (he broke my leg)
G5           A        B            G
  I won't be home,      I won't be home for Christmas
                                              (he broke my leg)
G5           A        B            G                  G5   (let ring, and fadeout)
  I won't be home,      I won't be home for Christmas
