A Long December

Counting Crows

 BbFCGm
 A long December and there's reason to believe
 BbFBb
Maybe this year will be better than the last
 GmBbFC
can't remember the last thing that you said
 Gm
as you were leavin'
 FBb
Now the days go by so fast
 FBbGmBb
And it's one more day up in the canyons 
 FBbGmBb
And it's one more night in Hollywood  
F Bb Gm -stop- F
If you think that I could be forgiven...I wish you would
Bb Gm Bb ....
nanananananananana..
The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl
And it's one more day up in the conyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California...I think you should
Drove up to the Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about
the things you could not show her
And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And it's been one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean...I guess I should

A Long December
by The Counting Crows
from Recovering The Satellites
brought to you by Tony Donato and Sal Ferrarello
NOTE: This is A Long December in a different key than already exists
in the file by Michael A. Mazur. I find this key easier to play in and
it
still sounds great.

If you transpose this to -1 semitone from the drop down above, and put a capo 1st fret , it is a great way to keep the same key and I find it a little easier to play. Starting off with "A" seems a little easier for me than the nasty Bb ...
