Lyrics
Take me back to Christmas in New England
To the comforting traditions that warm the winter air
All the old, familiar faces offer glad hearted embraces
Gathered round the ageless evergreen that's lighted in the square.

The church is filled with families at midnight
And sweet angelic voices --- ascending from the choir
While every child's eyes are glowing --- every Mom and Dad smile knowing
There'll be secret sleepless hours before they drift off by the fire

These memories of Christmas scenes --- the joy we bring's the gift that we receive
And this all we'll ever want and everything that we could need
In these reveries of Christmas dreams sometimes it seems so easy to believe
That maybe for a day at least --- we can live in love and hope and peace

These granite hills are echoing the feeling
That's closer to contentment than any feeling I have known
So take me back to Christmas in New England
It's the only place I'll ever call my own
It's the only place I'll ever call my home
