I’m a sucker for a depressing Christmas song. And this is one of the best.
The original version was in the uke-tricky key of Eb. So I’ve written up the version she’s been singing in recent years which is in the easy key of C.
You can use this strum almost all the way through:
d – d – d u d u
Do that twice for every chord.
- You can do just one down strum per chord in the bridges.
- Play the pattern five times on the “PLEASE!”s at the end of verse three.
- Just strum up and down on the big-ass finish until you run out of breath.
