Nestor The Long Eared Christmas Donkey
Recorded by Marty Robbins
Written by Dave Burgess, Gene Autry, Don Pfrimmer

C G7 C
Everyone knows about Rudolph
F G7 C
Our fleet-footed friend from the north
F C
Who lights Santa's way through the darkness
D7 G7
As he drives his sleigh back and forth

C G7 C
There's someone else we should mention
F G7 C
If we want the whole story told
F C
He carried the first gift of Christmas
G7 C
More precious than diamonds or gold

F G7 C
Nestor was a donkey who seldom laughed or played
F G7 C
Cause no one ever used him in the stable where he stayed
F G7 F C
And all the camels teased him the other donkeys too
F G7 C
They said look at little Nestor there's nothing he can do

F G7 F C
Look at little Nestor his ears hang to his knees
F C D7 G7
When he looks at his reflection ears are all he sees
F G7 F C
Nestor's heart was broken and his eyes were full of tears
F G7 C
If only there was somethin' he could do about his ears

F G7 C
One dark night two strangers gave Nestor a surprise
F G7 C
They chose him from all others for they loved his gentle eyes
F G7 F C
A man was called by Joseph Mary was his bride
F G7 C
She needed help to Bethlehem and Nestor's back to ride

F G7 C
They traveled through the desert but hadn't gone too far
F G7 C
When winter clouds no longer let them see their guiding star
F G7 F C
But Nestor learned a secret as he listened to the breeze
F G7 C
And the angels gave directions to the ears that touched his knees

Repeat #4

F G7 C
And so it was that Nestor found the manger where they stayed
F G7 C
Where kings and wise men bowed before the baby where he lay
F G7 F C
Mary bore our Savior and Nestor brought them there
F G7 C
A gift of love from God above for all the world to share

F G7 C
Though Rudolph I just love you I know you'd want it said
F G7 C
Nestor's ears are lovely as a reindeer's nose is red
F G7 F C
So children if you're happy when you trim your Christmas trees
F G7 C
You might thank a little donkey whose ears hung to his knees

F G7 F C
Look at little Nestor his ears hang to his knees
F C D7 G7
They shouted as they praised him and his friends were all so pleased
F G7 F C
Nestor was so happy and his eyes held no more tears
F G7 C
Now all the world knows Nestor for his laughter and his ears
