Lyrics to "Christmas Tears" song by Freddie King: I hear sleigh bells ring I haven't heard a word from you in years I hear sleigh bells ringin' But . .You been gone such a long, long time But it's Christmas and I can't get you off of my mind Seems like you been gone a hundred years or more But if you were here with me now I'd hang "Merry Christmas" on my door. I need ya darling Kiss and hold me tight I need ya darling On a lonely Christmas night And as I sit and think of the lonely years I can't help but cry, oh, Christmas tears Oh, Christmas tears.
