Father Christmas by The Kinks

I play all chords as power chords, ie E5, Eb5, etc.
Transpose so C takes the place of E for originial key.

Intro

Verse 1
E Eb C# B When I was small I believed in Santa Claus
E Eb E B 'Though I knew it was my dad
E Ab C# B And I would hang up my stocking at Christmas
E Eb E B Open my presents and I'd be glad
Bridge 1
C# B A G# But the last time I played Father Christmas
