The stars— and the moon               F#m  G#dim
December to June                             Dmaj7   D7sus4
We’ll be with you soon, my love.    Bm7  E7  A   D7b9        

The moon and the stars
Wherever you are
We’ll be with you soon, my love.     Bm7  E7  Amaj7-9  A7

Going places                             D E
Show our faces,                       Amaj7  A#dim
Friends’ embraces,                 Bm7  E7
Smiling again.                        A    D7b9

The light will appear                    F#m   G#dim
The end of the year                     Dmaj7    D7sus4
And I wish you good cheer        Bm7  E
tonight                                     A  Amaj7-9  A7

So unkind, those
Seasons confined
Locked out of school.
Frozen in time. A    D7b9

The sun will return               F#m   G#dim
So rest your concern            Dmaj7    D7sus4
And be of good cheer tonight.           Bm7  E    A   D7b9

Goin’ places,
We’ll show our faces,
See our friends
Smiling again.        D7b9

The light will appear                  F#m   G#dim
The end of the year                     Dmaj7    D7sus4
And I wish you good cheer        Bm7  E

2020 has been a very hard year. It’s challenge enough to endanger the global population with a lethal new virus. It’s far worse when the basic public health are manipulated into a political issue, creating public angst, ill will and certainly increasing our death toll from this formidable pathogen.

Happy new year to everyone. May the coming year be kinder than the past one! My wish is that our dangerously divided nation learn patience, and practice talking to one another!
