Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea

 

 

       Amaj9        A          Amaj9

I'm driving home for Christmas

A           Dmaj7             D6     Dmaj7

Oh, I can't wait to see those faces

       Amaj9        A          Amaj9

I'm driving home for Christmas, yea

A           Dmaj7         D6     Dmaj7  D6

Well I'm moving down that line

 

         C#m7    F#m7   Bm7    

And it's been so long

    Esus4

But I will be there

  C#m7      F#m7   Bm7

I sing this song

   Esus4         C#m7

To pass the time away

F#m7          Bm7

Driving in my car

Esus4            Amaj9     A   Amaj9  A

Driving home for Christmas

 

           Dmaj7          D6 

It's gonna take some time

             Dmaj7  D6

But I'll get there

Amaj9         A         Amaj9  A

Top to toe in tailbacks

          Dmaj7       D6        Dmaj7  D6

Oh, I got red lights all around

    Amaj9              A        Amaj9  A

But soon there'll be a freeway

       Dmaj7        D6       Dmaj7  D6

Get my feet on holy ground

 

     C#m7      F#m7  Bm7

So I sing for you

       Esus4              C#m7  

Though you can't hear me

           F#m7    Bm7  

When I get through

       Esus4             C#m7

Oh and feel you near me

F#m7          Bm7

Driving in my car

     Esus4            Amaj9      A

I am driving home for Christmas

                 Dmaj7     D6  Dmaj7  D6

Driving home for Christmas

 

                         Amaj9  A  Amaj9  A

With a thousand memories

 

                   Dmaj7          D6  Dmaj7  D6

I take look at the driver next to me

              Amaj9

He's just the same

         Dmaj7

Just the same

 

Middle:

Bm  C#m  D  E  Fm  E  D  C#m  Gmaj7  Em9

 

Amaj9         A         Amaj9   A

Top to toe in tailbacks

          Dmaj7           D6     Dmaj7  D6

Oh, I got red lights all around.

    Amaj9             A             Amaj9  A

I'm driving home for Christmas, yea

       Dmaj7        D6      Dmaj7    D6

Get my feet on holy ground
