A Christmas Letter

When it's Christmas time in heaven Do the angels trim the tree? And if angels sing Christmas carols Please ask them, sing one for me Folks, I'm a tired old postman Then Christmas eve is here And I guess I've been kind of grumpy 'Cause the load's been mighty heavy this year But this morning I picked up a letter Written in childish scrawl It said "to my daddy in heaven" With no return address at all "Dear daddy" I read "I miss you so much tonight Christmas eve is near Always before this at Christmas You been living down here The carols we sang together at night by the open fire Are you singing them tonight, daddy To all the kids up there? I couldn't buy you presents So I'm lighting a Christmas candle tonight And I hope when you read my letter That you look down and see the light I'll close for now 'Cause I'm crying and I can't see to write But don't grieve, they're happy tears, daddy Still I'll miss you, tomorrow on Christmas eve" When it's Christmas time in heaven Do the angels trim the tree? And if angels sing Christmas carols Please ask them, sing one for me I folded the letter and put it away While I brushed aside a tear Somehow I knew for certain That there'd been a daddy to hear 'Cause all at once in the distant south I saw a shining white light And from far, far away were voices like bells A great choir sang silent night When it's Christmas time in heaven Do the angels trim the tree? And if angels sing Christmas carols Please ask them, sing one for me Sonny James 1961
