The picking during the G in the intro and beginning of the verse is:

[G] [G]  
A winter's[G] day, in a[C] deep and dark[G] December;
[Am] I [D]am [C]alo[G]ne,
[Am7]Gazing from my [Bm7]window to the [Am7]streets [Bm7]below
On a [Am]freshly fallen [C]silent shroud of [D]snow.
[C]I am a [G]rock, [C]I am an [D]i__[G]_s[-]la[Em]nd.
I've built [G]walls, a [C]fortress deep and [G]mighty,
[Am] That none [D]may p[C]enetr[G]ate.
I [Am7]have no need of [Bm7]friendship; [Am7]friendship causes [Bm7]pain.
It's [Am]laughter and it's [C]loving I [D]disdain.
[Repeat Cborus] 
Don't talk of [G]love, but I've [C]heard the words [G]before;
It's [Am]sleep[D]ing in [C]my mem[G]ory.
I [Am7]won't disturb the [Bm7]slumber of [Am7]feelings that have [Bm7]died.
If I [Am]never loved I [C]never would have [D]cried.
[Repeat Cborus] 
I have my [G]books and my [C]poetry to [G]protect me;
I am sh[Am]ielded [D]in my [C]arm[G]or,
[Am7]Hiding in my [Bm7]room, [Am7]safe within my [Bm7]womb.
I [Am]touch no one and no [C]one touches [D]me.
[Repeat Cborus] 
And a [Am]rock feels [D]no [G]pain;
And an i[Am]sland [D]never [G]cries.
