It doesn't go C G F G C G F C x 2.
It goes C G F C x 4.

The bass notes are C B A G, it sounds like a G chord because the (loud) bass note is a G. Similar after the key change.

Listen to any live version by The Kinks, Ray Davies or the Kast off Kinks (The Kinks minus Ray Davies) and it'll become clear.

Also the first chorus has an Em in it instead of a G CGFC CGFEm. Similar after the key change (F#m)
