Christmas Must Be Tonight by Daryl Hall feat. Shelby Lynne

A very special rendition of “Christmas Must Be Tonight” recorded Live at Daryl’s House. I think this is a somewhat obscure Christmas song; perhaps in time Daryl Hall’s version will help it gain recognition, deservedly so!

Going down to Bethlehem, see the little son of man
Lying away in the manger, praise the Prince of Peace
Wheels start turning, fires start burning
Shine a light on the wise men journeying from the East.

[Chorus:]

How could a little baby boy, be bringing down so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas, must be tonight

See the shepards on a hillside, looking up at the sky
On a cold winter night they hear the angel’s sing
In a dream I heard a voice, said fear not, come rejoice
It’s the end of the beginning, praise the new born King

Just a little baby boy, he’s brining us so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas, must be tonight

[Chorus]

Then it came to pass, the child was born at last
Happened right before the star that shines on high

How could a little baby boy, be bringing down so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
It must be Christmas, must be tonight

[Chorus]

Must be tonight, it must be tonight
Christmas must be tonight
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
All right and it’s all right, Mary carried the holy light

The original recording by The Band (1977), written by Robbie Robertson.
