Black Day in December  Said the Whale

Awesome song and really fun to play!
Not sure about some of the chords in the interlude and these are just the
basic progressions (I didn't tab any of the other parts) but still sounds
good. Have fun!

Song:
[-----]  
[Dm]Mermaid sits on a [F]side wash rock in the [A#]harbor
Watching the [C]children play
And [Dm]every day, [F]sun or rain,
[A#]Old Man kneels to the [C]earth to pray
For the [Dm]rain and stars
And the [F]cars at the heart
[A#]The dark, and windy, Van[C]couver
(break) F
A black day in December
A A\G
She sees the worst is yet to come, yeah
A [F]big wave on [E]the horizon[Dm]
F/A A\G
The first wind blowing in
Left [F]Stanley soldiers[E] felled and broken[Dm]
And we went [F]oh, [C]oh?
[Dm]And Old Man kneels to the [F]earth
In his mother's [A#]garden
Where his own [C]father was laid
And [Dm]every day, [F]sun or rain
[A#]Mermaid sits on her [C]rock and she prays
For the [Dm]salmon in the sea
For the [F]winged in the trees
For the [A#]Old Man on his knees
Oh and for the [Dm]beauty in the park
And the [F]cars at the heart
Her own[A#] sisters and her brothers
And ten [C]thousand friends and lovers
(break) F
Black day in December
[A#] [C]A black day in Decem[F]ber[A#]
[Dm]Mermaid sits on a [F]tide wash rock in the [A#]harbor
Where the blue [C]heron would lay
And [Dm]every day, [F]sun or rain,
[A#]Old friends fall to the [C]earth and decay
With the [Dm]city by the sea
Sweet [F]brine in the breeze
With the [A#]mountains watching over
Her Van[C]couver
(break) F
Black day in December
[A#] A black day in Decem[F]ber
C C#(high) F
Black day in December
[A#] A black day in Decem[F]ber
C C# Dm(high)
Oh, oh...
