A                        D
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A                          E   E7
I don't wanna see my momma cry
A                        D

VERSE 2

E                              A
Just last year when I was only seven
E                                      A
Now I'm almost 8 as you can as you can see
A                             D      B7
You came home a quarter past eleven 
    A              E                   A
And fell down underneath our Christmas tree

CHORUS

A                        D
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A                          E   E7
I don't wanna see my momma cry
A                        D        
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A             E            A
I don't wanna see my momma cry

VERSE 3

E                              A
Momma smiled and looked outside the window
E                                      A
She told me, "Son you better go upstairs"
A                             D      B7
Then you laughed and hollered Merry Christmas
    A              E                   A
I turned around and saw my momma's tears

CHORUS

A                        D
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A                          E   E7
I don't wanna see my momma cry
A                        D        
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A             E            A
I don't wanna see my momma cry

CHORUS

A                        D
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A                          E   E7
I don't wanna see my momma cry
A                        D        
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
A             E            A
I don't wanna see my momma cry
