White Christmas
Otis Redding Lyrics

I, I'm dreaming, dreaming of a white, white Christmas, y'all
Just like the one that I used to know, oh
Honey, it's where the treetops, treetops glisten
Little bitty, little bitty, little bitty children
They trying to listen
To hear, before the sleigh bells that are ringing in the snow
I want to tell you one more time what I'm thinking about

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, yeah
With every Christmas card that I write you, oh
I want you to know
May your days, may your days
Be so merry, merry and bright
Oh darling I wished all of them
One more thing
And may all, all of your Christmases
And be all, and be all of your Christmases

Baby may your days, may your days
Be merry, merry, so merry and bright
Lord have mercy, I wished all of 'em honey

And may all your Christmases
Be so white
Have mercy, all the white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm dreaming, dreaming of a white, white Christmas
Baby, baby, Lord I'm dreaming, dreaming of a Christmas
Yeah, baby, Merry Christmas

My parents use to dance to this song when we played it on Christmas Day..This is one beautiful song and soulful


By far my favorite version of this song. Amazing how Otis managed to take a classic and completely redefine it, and make it his own.

I love this song!

Empress of Gospel

This is the best version of this song!


Otis is always fantastic and empathic. For me, this version is tinged with some wistfulness and longing, reminding me that Christmas can be really hard for some people. It has been for me in the past, and likely will again at some point in the future, and I think Otis knew that too. Beautiful.

I'm glad you said that because Christmas can be very emotional, especially with the overwhelming pressure to be happy in this season. I have always found this song wistful and a bit melancholy- but beautiful.
