Intro: G - Bm - C Cadd9hC - C Cadd9hC (x4)
(Cadd9 : x30010. Hammer-on middle finger to change from Cadd9 to C)
[Em] Hey sweet [C]Annie, don't t[G]ake it so bad
[D] you know the summer's coming s[A7]oon
though the [C]interstate is ch[D]oking under s[Bm]alt and dirty s[C]and
and it s[Am]eems the sun is hiding[C/B] from the [C]moon
[G] Your daddy t[C]old you when y[D]ou were a g[G]irl
the k[B7]ind of things that come to those who [C]wait
so g[C]ive it a r[G]est girl, t[C]ake a deep br[G]eath girl
and m[Am]eet me at the Bay State[C/B] to[C]night

The sn[D]ow is coming down on [C]our New England t[G]own
and [D]it's been falling all day l[Am]ong
wh[C]at else is n[D]ew?, w[C]hat could I [Em]do?
I wr[C]ote a valley winter song to pl[D]ay for y[G]ou

G Bm C C (x2)
[Em] And late De[C]cember, can d[G]rag a man down
[D] you feel it deep in your g[A7]ut
[C] short days and [D]afternoons spent p[Bm]ottering around[C]
in a d[Am]ark house with the windows [C/B]painted [C]shut
[G] Remember N[C]ew York st[D]aring outs[G]ide
[B7] as wreckless winter made its w[C]ay
fr[C]om Staten [G]Island to the [C]Upper West S[G]ide
[Am]whiting out our streets a[C/B]long the [C]way

Chorus 2:
The sn[D]ow is coming down on [C]our New England t[G]own
and [D]it's been falling all day l[Am]ong
wh[C]at else is n[D]ew?, wh[C]at can I [Em]do?
but s[C]ing this valley winter song I wr[D]ote for y[G]ou
