Ralph Stanley ?

Out in the country about this time of year
Everybody's happy Christmas time is near
Little children playing running to and fro
Santa Claus is coming riding on the snow

I remember years ago when just a lad at home
How I longed for Christmas time and nothing could go wrong
Now today as I look back it seems like just a year
Going back to see 'em all Christmas time is near

Holly in the window the fireplace burning bright
Candle lights a glowing on a Christmas night
I'll see the smiling faces once again this year
Waiting for me at the door Christmas time is near

I can see the pine trees now swaying here and there
They seem to know it's Christmas there's joy everywhere
Ice froze on the branches the water cool and clear
Snowflakes a falling Christmas time is near
