Legendary country singer, Kenny Rogers brings true Christmas cheer.

Releasing a hit album in each of the last seven decades, Rogers launched his first Christmas album in 17 years this fall and also started off on a holiday tour for the album, Once Again It's Christmas

Appearing as the special musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Rogers performed the timeless Christmas song, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" which also is part of his latest album. 

The Christmas classic was originally made famous by Bing Crosby in 1943 when Rogers was just five years old! The song is written about a solider stationed overseas speaking to his family in a letter and requesting holiday staples like snow, presents beneath the tree, and mistletoe with the tune taking a more somber tone through the final line: "if only in my dreams."

Rogers' performance of this traditional song is as beautiful as the message the song gives listeners. He opened with a non-traditional verse and flows effortlessly through the song with strategic pauses and and powerful ending.

Watch Kenny Rogers sing "I'll Be Home For Christmas" in the video below! 

LYRICS BELOW

I'm dreaming tonight
Of a place I love
Even more than I usually do

Although I know
It's a long road back
This I promise you:

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
