There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
If you have a harmonica... well... that can liven it up a bit.


Capo 5 (Roy plays it on capo 6, but do whatever you can sing to).  He also throws a hammer on the C chords.

Same chord progression throughout.

[Verse 1]
           C                 F          C
There's a turkey a gobblin' out in the yard
                                      F           G
Now he's gutted and stuffed and he's basted and charred  
          F         C             F          Am              G
And your father is whistlin' and washin' the blood down the drain
Christmas is pain

[Verse 2]
           C                          F            C
There's a crowd on the hillside with hatchets and saws
                               F        G
With a keen disregard for the forestry laws
          F       C             F            Am            G
And they happily hum while the stumps slowly bleed in the rain
Christmas is pain

[Verse 3]
          C                         F           C
And the stockings are hung by the chimney with care
                                       F          G
As if anyone in their right mind would hang 'em there
          F         C          F           Am      G
And some tired old crooner is croakin' out carols again
Christmas is pain

[Verse 4]
         C                      F       C
And you wait for an hour to see Santa Claus
                                  F           G
And he's covered with velveteen, bourbon and gauze
        F            C             F              Am         G
And he pinches your mother and she can't find the words to explain
Christmas is pain

[Verse 5]
         C                       F      C
And the hungry are hungering on Hunger Street
                      F                  G
While the people on Plenty Street . . . eat
         F             C            F             Am       G
And you punctured the roof of your mouth on a sharp candy cane
Christmas is pain

[Verse 6]
                  C               F          C
And all the good cheer is just Madison Ave..news
                                        F         G
And all the best Christmas songs were written by Jews
         F          C             F         Am         G
And the eight tiny reindeer have left an embarrassing stain
Christmas is pain

[Verse 7]
        C                                 F      C
And two-thirds of the world doesn't give half a damn
                                   F           G
And the rest are all bloated on marshmallowed yams
         F        C             F          Am           G
And if Jesus was here, he'd be sent to the back of the train
Christmas is pain

[Verse 8]
          C                    F           C
And they double the price of whatever you need
                                  F         G
Singin', "I pledge allegiance to corporate greed"
            F            C               F                   Am         G
And you're forced to spend several hours conversing with your old Aunt Lorraine
who's insane
with a brain on a plane to Spain
where the main stays rainly in the flat terrain
Christmas is pain
