We're having a special Christmas
Down in the country this year
For the very first time -
From places far and near -
Everyone's coming back home!

The tide rises high
Like the moon in the sky -
And a silver road across the sea
Leads safely to the lighthouse on shore
Everyone's coming back home!

From the snowy mountain
To the valley and the bay
So many memories come tonight -
Oh - harbour light - shine bright -

Oh - church bells will ring -
As carols we sing
We'll remember all our yesterdays -
Come sit by the fire
And celebrate with cheer -
Everyone's going to be here

Instrumental break

Come on home
Come on home
Come on home - it's Christmastime
Everyone's coming - everyone's going to be here

In every window - a candle
In every heart - a happy song
In every eye - a tear of joy
You've been away so long [hold through transition]

We're having a Merry Christmas
Down in the country this year
No matter how far away you are -
Your heart will lead you home -
You'll find your way back home
Short Song Description:
Waiting for long-lost love to come home at Christmas
Long Song Description:
In the Bing Crosby tradition - a soft take on the nostalgia of Christmas is reflected in our "down in the country" theme for this beautiful new classic
