C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
Amber called her uncle said We're up here for the holiday
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
Jane and I were having Solstice now we need a place to stay
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
And her Christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang Mary on a tree
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
He watched his son hang candy canes all made with red dye number three
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
He told his niece It's Christmas Eve I know our life is not your style
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
She said Christmas is like Solstice and we miss you and it's been awhile

C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
And just before the meal was served hands were held and prayers were said
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 C chordC
Sending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses

C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
The food was great the tree plugged in the meal had gone without a hitch
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
Till Timmy turned to Amber and said Is it true that you're a witch
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
His mom jumped up and said The pies are burning and she hit the kitchen
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
And it was Jane who spoke she said It's true your cousin's not a Christian
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
But we love trees we love the snow the friends we have the world we share
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
And you find magic from your God and we find magic everywhere

C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
And where does magic come from I think magic's in the learning
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 C chordC
Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans only pumpkin pies are burning

C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
When Amber tried to do the dishes her aunt said Really no don't bother
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
Amber's uncle saw how Amber looked like Tim and like her father
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
He thought about his brother how they hadn't spoken in a year
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
He thought he'd call him up and say It's Christmas and your daughter's here
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
He thought of fathers sons and brothers saw his own son tug his sleeve saying
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 G7 chordG7
Can I be a Pagan Dad said We'll discuss it when they leave

C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7
Lighting trees in darkness learning new ways from the old and
C chordC F chordF Dm chordDm G7 chordG7 C chordC
Making sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold
