Christmas Where I Come From Lyrics – Ron Pope

I know that it’s Christmas where I come from,
It don’t feel like Christmas where I am.
All the love I’ve known, people made that house a house,
They’re so far away from this place that I’ve run,
(but) I know that it’s Christmas where I come from.

I know that it’s Christmas where I come from,
It don’t feel like Christmas where I am.
Mama’s not cookin’, cousins aren’t lookin’
To get into the booze ’til Grandma hears somebody shootin
off their mouth,
Then from the edge of the couch,
Tells us “Be careful now”
Like when she used to ground
the whole gang of us for destroying her house.

So deck the halls without me, it’s all right,
Maybe call me after dinner if there’s time.

I know that it’s Christmas where I come from,
It don’t feel like Christmas where I am.
All the love I’ve known, people made that house a house,
They’re so far away from this place that I’ve run,
(but) I know that it’s Christmas where I come from.

It’s not gonna snow here, wish I had some reindeer and a sleigh,
To get me home by Christmas Day.

So, I know that it’s Christmas where I come from,
It don’t feel like Christmas where I am.
All the love I’ve known, people made that house a house,
They’re so far away from this place that I’ve run,
(but) I know that it’s Christmas, yes I know that it’s Christmas
I know that it’s Christmas where I come from.
