Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Chords & Guitar Lesson

Welcome to my Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 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.

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer 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.

Intro: One Strum Each

You know
|C                    Dm|                |Am                  G|

Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
|C                     Bm|             |Am                G|
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,
But do you recall
                     A7                                D7
The most famous reindeer of all?

G                                             G
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
G                                D7
Had a very shiny nose,
D7                          D7
And if you ever saw it,
D7                                         G
You would even say it glows.

G                             G
All of the other reindeer
G                                                    D7
Used to laugh and call him names.
D7                                   D7
They never let poor Rudolph
D7                                    |G      G7|
Join in any reindeer games.

C                                   G
Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
D7                          G
Santa came to say,
D                                      D
"Rudolph, with your nose so bright,
|Em               A7|              D7
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

G                                            G
Then how the reindeer loved him,
G                                                 D7
As they shouted out with glee:
D7                                             D7
"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
D7                            D7              G
You'll go down in his - to - ry!"
