[F]Na na na [Bb]na yeah[Am]

[Bb]The smel[F]l of hospitals in winter (w/ fill [C]1, then fill[Gm] 2 here)
And the feeling th[Bb]at it's all a l[F]ot of oysters, but no [Bb]pearls *
[Gm]All at [Bb]once you look acros[F]s a crowded room          [C]       [Gm]
To see the way [F]that light atta[Bb]ches to a girl *(and fill 3 here)
And it's one [F]more day up in the canyon[Bb]s                 [Gm]
And it's one [F]more night in Hollywood  [Bb]              [Gm]
If you thi[F]nk you might c[Bb]ome to California... I think you[Gm] should

[Bb]Drove up[F] to Hillside Manor sometime after [C]two a.m.    [Gm]
And talked a littl[Bb]e while about t[F]he year               [Bb]
[Gm]I guess[Bb] the winter makes y[F]ou laugh a little slower, [C]            [Gm]
Makes you talk a l[F]ittle lower about the things you could n[Bb]ot show her

[Bb]And it's[F] been a long December and there's [C]reason to be[Gm]lieve
Maybe this year wi[Bb]ll be better th[F]an the last *(fill 2)      [Bb]
[Gm]I can't[Bb] remember all the t[F]imes I tried to tell mysel[C]f                       [Gm]
To ho[F]ld on to these moments as they pass *(f[Bb]ill 4)
And it's one [F]more day up in the canyon[Bb] *(fill 5, played [Gm]w/ a slide)
And it's one[F] more night in Hollywood [Bb]              [Gm]
It's been [F]so long since I've seen t[Bb]he ocean... I guess I s[Gm]hould

[F]Na na na [Bb]na yeah[Am]...... yea[Am]h
