lyrics

The courthouse is lit like a great big pyramid
Piping songs of holiday cheer
Angels hark from the hay from live nativity
Proclaiming that Christmas is near

Its Christmas time in Winterset, Iowa
Its Christmas time you can feel it in the air
Its Christmas time in Madison County
And I can’t wait to be there

West Bridge’s halls are decked with plastic holly
And Montross’s has your hallmark ornaments
The High School Choirs sing Hallelujah
While the band warms up their instruments

Its Christmas time in Winterset, Iowa
Its Christmas time you can feel it in the air
Its Christmas time in Madison County
And I, for one, can’t wait to be there

The light posts on the square are wrapped in garland
And tied with pretty red bows
Even the turbines south of town have got the spirit
blinking brightly like Rudolph’s shiny nose

Its Christmas time in Winterset, Iowa
Its Christmas time you can feel it in the air
Its Christmas time in Madison County
And I, for one, can’t wait to be there

I hope that it will snow come Christmas Morning
So we can make some fresh tracks on our way
Through the City Park and on to Clark’s Tower
Where from the top we’ll shout out and say

Its Christmas time in Winterset, Iowa
Its Christmas time you can feel it in the air
Its Christmas time in Madison County
And I’m so glad to be here
