Connect The Chords: Somebody Stole My Santa Claus Suit

Posted on: December 14th, 2011 by dville





Welcome to another edition of Connect The Chords!  In this episode we’ll examine the chord progression to the Dan Hicks Christmas Jug Band classic Somebody Stole My Santa Claus Suit.  If you know howSomebody Stole My Gal goes, you’ll have a leg up on learning this song.  I’ll post the chords to each section of the song, your job is to listen to the recording and find where the changes in the song take place.  Happy Holidays!

Key of G:  
IMajor  iiminor  iiiminor  IVMajor V-D Major (D7) vi-E minor vii-F# dim
I-V7-I
Somebody stole my Santa Claus suit
Somebody ripped off my beard, hat and boots

VI7-II7-V7

Some little fatso is all dressed in red
He even had the gall to swipe the pillow off my bed

I-V7-I

Now what my kids going to think?
If Santa’s a no-show, well boy, they’ll raise a stink
I-I7-IV-iv
But Deck the Halls and “What the Hell!”
I still got my Jingle Be-ll-s
I-VI7-II7-V7-I
So sucker, you can keep the suit!
Cause frankly I don’t give a HOOT!
I-V7-I
But where, oh where’s my Santa Claus suit?
That git-up set me back a bundle of loot!
VI7-II7-V7
The beard alone was four-ninety-eight
The box it came in was an antique orange crate!
I-V7-I
Somebody took the whole she-bang.
If I find that roly-poly mother he’s going to hang!
I-I7-IV-iv
But, gee, I guess that’s no way to be
He might do some good with it and all thanks to me!
I-VI7-II7-V7-I
So sucker, you can keep the suit!
Frankly I don’t give a HOOT!
