Home for the Holidays (Big Band)
© Bruce Mills 2006 (ASCAP / SOCAN)

I'm coming home for the holidays
You better get ready for me
Put up the tree and some mistletoe
I'm coming home to see

I'm going to be home for the holidays
Tune up that old grand piano
We're going to sing carols in the soft candle light
I'll be there - as sure as snow

Chorus:
Do you remember the old melodies?
And we're sitting and we're singing by the fire
I hear your voice in the midnight air
I'm really hoping you're going to be there - 'cause

I'm coming home for the holidays
I'm already on my way
I'm boarding the train - getting ready to leave
I'll be there for Christmas Day

[All Aboard!]

Sax solo

Chorus:
Do you remember those old melodies?
When we're sitting and we're singing by the fire
I hear your voice in the midnight air
I know in my heart you're waiting for me there

I'm coming home for the holidays
This time I'm really going to be there
We'll hitch up the horses - ride off in the sleigh
Over those hills and away
Oh baby - Up over those hills and away
Oh - darling - I'll be holding you in my arms on Christmas Day!
Description

Like the title - the wonderful experience of returning home for Christmas
Long Song Description:
After many years away from home, what could make everybody happier than if you came home for Christmas! Especially if there's somebody special who's been waiting for you ...
Story Behind the Song:
searching for that classic "standards" kind of vibe to reflect the true feelings of coming home for Christmas - old words and ideas like trains, fires, candles, sleighs ... you know ... cheesy stuff that brings a warm fuzzy feeling to you!
