Title: Christmas Song
Artist: Lyle Watson and the Water’s Edge
Album: Just a Moment

Copyright 2000 Blue Bean Productions. I’m sure all rights are reserved, so if
you choose to do anything illegal with this, I have nothing to do with it.  Now
that all the legal stuff is aside, this is a very beautiful christmas song
(hence the name) by Lyle Watson and his band, the Water’s edge. What I have
written here is just about correct. The riff below (the first line of tab) is
basically played over and over again except for in the chorus. I have that
tabbed lower down. J If you have to, don’t be ashamed to separate the lower
part from the top and have two guitars play it. I can’t play it all at once,
so there’s no reason you should, too. There are a few small variations on the
riff. Most of the time, you don’t play the bold notes. I’ve made the lines
when you do bold as well. Aside from that, the only variations are the chorus
and the occasional missed string. (It is quite a hard guitar part.) Enjoy!

Standard Tuning; no capo

Intro: (play riff once for a line, then once without lyrics)

Cool Heavenly night
Cobalt blue Skies
Stars peirce the darkness           \This part counts as one line as
Spectators of this miracle tonight  /far as riffs go.
Angels, sound your horns
Heavenly Host, sound your horns

(play once)
Verse: play riff once per line. 

For unto us a child is born 
Unto us a gift is given
Unto us His son is given
For hope and life and our salvation
Hope and life and our salvation
Hope and life and our salvation

(Play riff once)
