A Holly Jolly Christmas Chords & Guitar Lesson

Welcome to my A Holly Jolly Christmas chord chart. Another Christmas classic that I grew up listening to. This one has some pretty simple chords as well making it nice and easier for beginners to play.

A Holly Jolly Christmas Chords:

If you see 7 chords (D7, G7) and don’t know what those are, don’t worry. You can easily play the regular D and G chords and do just fine.

There is an F chord the comes in on the bridge, but again, if you are a beginner, you can play an Fmaj7 chord instead of trying to attempt a difficult barre chord.

                C                     C
Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
                C                             G7
It's the best time of the year.
G7                         G7
I don't know if there'll be snow,
         G7                          C
But have a cup of cheer.

                C                     C
Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
                               C                            G7
And when you walk down the street,
G7                     G7
Say hello to friends you know,
           G7                        C  
And everyone you meet.

F                    Em
Oh, ho the mistletoe
|Dm                 G7|           C
Hung where you can see.
Dm                 Am
Somebody waits for you;
D7                             G7
Kiss her once for me.

                C                    C
Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
                C                           G7
And in case you didn’t hear,
G7                                  C                |D7     G7|
Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas
This year.
