Artist: Orla Gartland
Song: North Pole Bank
Website: www.facebook.com/OrlaGartland
This work is only the artists (version a) and then my own interpretation of the song
(version b). All copyright to Orla - you can also find the chords and tabs on her Facebook-page.

I will put in two different versions the first is the chord/strumming version without
the little flicks in the start. Orla states that it's capo 4 and
Chorus: C-G-Am-F
Every other part: Am-C-F-G

=================================

I, however, play it a little different. I see her having the capo on 4 on the video
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14-gjqhKIdA) but simply don't find the sound fitting on my
guitar - for some wierd reason. Yes, I am in standard tuning (EADGBE). So usually I 
would go for "this version" when I play it:

I think this sound pretty accurate:
Capo 3

Where will he get those toys
For all them girls and boys
What is there for Santa Clause to do

Hes feeling helpless now
The cause of many a row
These hard financial times affect him too

The elves had had enough
Less than minimum wage is tough
So saint nick had sent them on their way

With no one to assist,
Bills longer than the naughty list (#END OF FINGERSTYLE#)
 G                    F (let ring)
How on earth would poor Santa Clause pay

E
Children all over the world, all countries, all races
F
Wake up demember 25th with disappointed faces
E
None of them with a clue what poor Saint Nick has been through
F
Underneath the Christmas tree is an I.O.U

---Chorus---
C/G                G
Spare a thought for Santa Clause this year
Am
Wont hear a ho ho ho exchange rates low low low
F
Its pretty hard to spread that Christmas cheer
C/G
Hes trying to make it better, he goes through all the letters
G
Molly wants a dolly and John wants a tank
Am
Well thats all good and jolly kids,
                      F
but my children there is just no money in the North Pole Bank

(middle stuff)
   Am          C               G         F

Am
A lot on Santas plate,
C
Mrs. Clause says lose weight
G                               F

That clunky old time sleigh,
C                       G                               F
Was really past its day so Santa clause he bought a Porshe instead

Am                         C                                 G
Borrowed the money from Rudolf and now hes charging interest rates,
                 F                              Am
After being made redundant him and Nick no longer mates
                             C
The systems falling apart, the children still in his heart,
G                                F
Oh where did this whole thing start?

Em (eventually add pinky on 3rd fret, high e-string and release again)
Children all over the world, all countries, all races
F
Wake up demember 25th with disappointed faces
Em
None of them with a clue what poor Saint Nick has been through
F
Underneath the Christmas tree is an I.O.U

---Chorus---
C/G                  G
Spare a thought for Santa Clause this year

Wont hear a ho ho ho exchange rates low low low

Hes trying to make it better, he goes through all the letters
G
Molly wants a dolly and John wants a tank

Puts the key in the ignition and off he goes
                           F

Am                      C
Ann wants a Barbie doll, Mary has one of those
G                                    F

Am                        C
The fat boy down the road, he wants a rocking horse
G                                               F

Am                    C
Satisfies the kiddies, with not a penny to pay,
G                     F
Move over baby Jesus, hes the saviour of the day

C/G            G
So we can all celebrate Christmas this year
Am
Wont hear a ho ho ho exchange rates still quite low
F
But its not hard to spread that Christmas cheer
C/G
He tried to make it better, he went through all the letters
G

F
