A Bluegrass Christmas
Performed by all the kids: Karrterisa, CJ, Scotty and Edith. Also grandkids, Cayce and Dawson, and son-in-law Brian.

Verse 1:

The chilly wind is blowing, for winter's all around.
The snow is gently falling and resting on the ground.
The once-green grass is frozen, icicles hanging in sight.
And if we get snowed in, well that’ll be alright…
We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!


Verse 2:

Now Joe’ll take out his fiddle and rosin up the bow.
Then he’ll play “Little Drummer Boy”, a song that we all know.
Rex will pick his guitar with a rhythm that’s just right.
Mom’ll grab a set of spoons and play with all her might…
We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!


Verse 3:

Then Sue will grab her banjo and get ready to jump in, 
But she’ll wait for Randy, to tune up his mandolin.
Then they’ll play “Joy to the World”, O what a happy sight.
We’ll tap our toes to Don’s base fiddle way into the night…
We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!


Verse 4:

Then Dad will stand and motion to all to gather ‘round.
We’ll harmonize to “Silent Night”, O what a haunting sound. 
Silent night, holy night! All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild.
“Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace”


Verse 5:

We’ll read the Christmas story, hold hands and then we'll pray.
We’ll thank God for His precious Gift that came on Christmas day.
And then the kids yelled, “Hey y’all! 'Play Jingle Bells' tonight!" 
So in our Bluegrass style, we’ll play to their delight…
We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!

We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!
We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!
We’re gonna have a blue, blue, Bluegrass Christmas!

Merry Christmas Y’all!
