I Believe In Father Christmas

Coversong originally made famous by Greg Lake
Written by Greg Lake with lyrics by Peter Sinfield

Dsus2                 G6      D   
They said there'll be snow at Christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth,
But instead it just kept on raining,
A veil of tears for the Virgin birth.

C  G           D
I remember one Christmas morning,
C            G           D
The Winter's light and a distant choir,
         D        A             G              D
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell,
    D            G6         Dsus2
And eyes full of tinsel and fire.

They sold me A dream of Christmas,
They sold me A silent night,
They told me A fairy story,
'Til I believed in the Israelite.
I wish you A hopeful Christmas,
I wish you A brave New Year,
All anguish, pain and sadness,
Leave your heart and let your road be clear.

Dsus2                 G6      D
They said there'd be snow at Christmas,
They said there'd be peace on earth,
D            A           G6        D
Hallelujah! Noel!, be it Heaven or Hell,
     D           G6   Dsus2
The Christmas we get, we deserve.
