G
A cold tear fall from his eyes
                                     D7
As he turns into the night and walks away

Lucille runs outside
                                G
Just to see if there might be a sleigh

Little Bobby he stares down
                   G7            C
At the plate where cookies still lay
    G
And tries to understand
D7                         G
Why momma said Santa can't stay

C          D7          G
Momma said Santa can't stay
         C        D7               G
Said she told him that twice yesterday
       C             D7    G                    Em
Then a car just like dad's pulled out and drove away
      C                         D7
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

G
They both heard him coming
                                     D7
Saw mom run down the hall and holler wait

Doug you're drunk don't come inside
                                       G
I'm not joking I've had all this I can take

He threw a present really hard
                          G7        C
That almost hit mom's new boyfriend Ray
           G
And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here
    D7                    G
And said that Santa can't stay

C          D7          G
Momma said Santa can't stay
         C        D7               G
Said she told him that twice yesterday
       C             D7    G                    Em
Then a car just like dad's pulled out and drove away
      C                         D7
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

C          D7          G
Momma said Santa can't stay
         C        D7               G
Said she told him that twice yesterday
       C             D7    G                    Em
Then a car just like dad's pulled out and drove away
      C                         D7
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

C          D7          G
Momma said Santa can't stay
         C        D7               G
Said she told him that twice yesterday
       C             D7    G                    Em
Then a car just like dad's pulled out and drove away
      C                         D7
After momma said Santa couldn't stay

G          D7          G
Momma said Santa can't stay
