George Strait – Old Time Christmas lyrics

(Aaron Barker/John Jarvis)

Tricycles, Bicycles
Candy canes and candlelight
Tryin' to stay awake all night
To catch a glimpse of Santa's reindeer
Mama bakin', sister makin'
Angels in the fallin' snow
Now it seems so long ago
I wish they all were here

We'd have an old time Christmas
An old time Christmas
Just like the ones from yesterday
We'd leave the world behind us
Let the spirit find us
And have an old time Christmas
For old times sake

Friends singin', bells ringin'
Snowman standing in the yard
It's a living Christmas card
Captured in our hearts forever
Friends scatter, it's won't matter
The magic never melts away
It only takes a Christmas Day
To make it reappear


So leave the world behind you
Let the spirit find you
And have an old time Christmas
For old times sake
