Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a gorgeous cover by Kate of a Tim Minchin song :)
Just listen to the song to get the hang of the finger-picking, it's really simple!

Capo 4

INTRO:  C x 4

C
I'm looking forward to Christmas
           F                               C
It's sentimental I know, but I just really like it
C
I'm hardly religious
                   F                                        C       
I'd rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu to be honest
               G                                  F
And yes I have all of the usual objections to consumerism
                                       C
The commercialisation of an ancient religion

And the western-isation of a dead Palestinian
                                             G
Press-ganged into selling PlayStations and beer
                            F
But I still really like it.


C
I, I really like Christmas
               F                      C
Though I'm not expecting a visit from Jesus
                   G     
I'll be seeing my dad
     F                       E          Am
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
                F                       C
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun
                   G
I'll be seeing my dad
    F                       E          Am
My sisters and brother, my gran and my mum
             F                       C
We'll be drinking white wine in the sun.



C
I don't go for ancient wisdom
           F                                                          C
I don't believe just 'cause ideas are tenacious it means that they're worthy
C
I get freaked out by churches
             F                                                       C
Some of the hymns that they sing have nice chords but the lyrics are dodgy
               G                                       
And yes I have all of the usual objections 
               F                                         C
To the mis-education of children forced into a cult institution

And taught to externalise blame

And to feel ashamed
                                        G
And to judge things as plain right and wrong
                      F
But I quite like the songs.


C
I'm not expecting big presents
    F                                                             C
The old combination of socks, jocks and chocolate is just fine by me.
                          G
'Cause I'll be seeing my dad
    F                       E          Am
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
              F                         C
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun
                   G
I'll be seeing my dad
   F                        E          Am
My sisters and brother, my gran and my mum
              F                        C
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun.



    F
And you my baby girl
    C
My jetlagged infant daughter
           F
You'll be handed round the room
        C
Like a puppy at a primary school
    F
And you're too young to know
               C            
But you will learn yourself one day
          F
That wherever you are and whatever you face
F                                                       Am
These are the people who'll make you feel safe in this world
                   ?
My sweet blue-eyed girl


        F
And if my baby girl
              C
When you're twenty-one or thirty-one
     F
And Christmas comes around
         C
And you find yourself nine thousand miles from home
        F                         G
You'll know whatever comes
       G                                E                   Am
Your brother and sister, and me and your mum
              F                          C
Will be waiting for you in the sun
C                              G
Girl, when Christmas comes
G                                                           
Your brothers and sisters, your aunts and your uncles
                                                 E                     Am
Your grandparents, cousins, and me and your mum
                 F                                  C
Will be drinking white wine in the sun
           F                                C
We'll be waiting for you in the sun
F
Baby, whenever you come
                                     C
We'll be drinking white wine in the sun
 F
Waiting.


C
I, I really like Christmas
           F              C
It's sentimental I know...
