ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS (ACROSS THE MILES TONIGHT) (Rita MacNeil (m & l) ) Lyrics as released by Rita MacNeil 1993 'Once Upon A Christmas'. The apples in December were still upon the tree A lone bird was singing sweet, by the frozen stream Once upon a Christmas, how I long to see A hint of white, all is bright You waiting for me. The ribbons and the presents were never very far You always knew just what to give, to touch somebody's heart Once upon a Christmas, how it used to be A winter's night, all is bright And you waiting for me. I know it's that time again, you must feel it too We live in different places now, it's Christmas without you But if I take a moment, I close my eyes real tight I'll send you my best wishes, across the miles tonight. Do you watch the snowflakes fall, like you used to do And worry when that day arrives, forget a gift or two Once upon a Christmas, when there was you and me Making lists, wrapping gifts and sharing all our dreams. I know it's that time again, you must feel it too We live in different places now, it's Christmas without you But if I take a moment, I close my eyes real tight I'll send you my best wishes, across the miles tonight. I'll send you my best wishes, across the miles tonight NOTES: Rita MacNeil, a Canadian from Big Pond on Cape Breton Island, province of Nova Scotia, Canada composes music and lyrics together spontaneously before recording to tape and has over 200 BMI registrations in 38 years.
