January Hymn  The Decemberists

There are really only three parts to this song. Very simple and very beautiful.
This is used for both intro and verses. BE SURE TO RECOGNIZE THE OPEN G STRING AS
A BASS NOTE! CAPO 2!

REPEAT THE ABOVE FOR INTRO AND VERSES!!
On a winter's sunday I go,
To clear away the snow,
To green the ground below,
April all an ocean away,
Is the better way to spend the day,
Keeping the winter at bay,
CHORUS
[F]What were the [G]words I mean to [C]say before you [F]left?
[F]When [Am]I could see your [F]breath lead where you were [G]going to
THE TAB LEADING BACK TO INTRO/VERSE TAB

INTRO/VERSE PROGRESSION
Maybe I should I just let it be,
Maybe it will all come back to me,
[F]Sing Oh [G]january, Oh (back to INTRO/VERSE)
How i lived a childhood in snow,
and all my teens in tow,
stuffed in a strata of clothes,
Hail the winter days after dark,
Wandering the gray memorial park,
A fleeting beating heart,
[F]What were the [G]words I mean to [C]say before you [F]left?
[F]When [Am]I could see your [F]breath lead where you were [G]going to

INTRO/VERSE:
Maybe I should just let it be,.
and maybe it will all come back to me,
[F]Sing all J[G]anuuu..[F]All Jan[G]uary Oh
INTRO/VERSE tab to fade out.
Little drunk while doing this, but you should get the idea.
