8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I'll have a blue Christmas without you.
I'll be so blue thinking about you.
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree,
Won't mean a thing if you're not here with me.
I'll have a Blue Christmas that's certain,
And when that blue heartache starts hurtin',
You'll be doing all right, with your Christmas of white,
But I'll have a blue, Blue Christmas.
