If We Make It Through December
Merle Haggard

Bb F
If We Make It Through December ev'rything's gonna be alright I know;
F7 Gm7 C7 F
It's the coldest time of winter and I shiver when I see the falling snow;
F7 Bb
If We Make It Through December,
F
Got plans to be a warmer town come summer time;
F7 Gm7
Maybe even California,
C7 Gm7 C7 F
If We Make It Through December, we'll be fine;
Gm7
Got laid off down at the fact'ry
C7 Gm7 C7 F
And their timing's not the greatest in the world;
F7 Gm7 C7 Gm7 C7 F
Heaven knows I been working hard, wanted Christmas to be right for daddy's girl;
F7 Bb
I don't mean to hate December,
F
It's meant to be the happy time of year;
F7 Gm7 C7 F
And my little girl don't understand why daddy can't afford no Christmas here;
Bb F
If We Make It Through December ev'rything's gonna be alright I know;
F7 Gm7 C7 F
It's the coldest time of winter and I shiver when I see the falling snow;
F7 Bb
If We Make It Through December,
F
Got plans to be a warmer town come summer time;
F7 Gm7
Maybe even California,
C7 Gm7 C7 F Eb Bb F
If We Make It Through December, we'll be fine.
