Santa Rosa in the Snow  Joe Purdy

no capo, standard tuning
[C] [G] [C] [G]  
Happy [C]New Year Santa Rosa here I am
I was br[F]ought in by the weather and the co[C]ld
I was he[G]ading towards the West to find the s[Am]and
But I gu[G]ess I'll have to settle for the s[F]now
And [C]I am just a stranger to this town
I'm lo[F]nely and I'm restless and I'm st[C]uck
I w[G]ish I knew a way to get back do[Am]wn
And I [G]wish I had a shovel in this tru[F]ck
And the s[C]tate police won't let me on the street
I to[F]ld 'em my story, but they don't c[C]are
There's an o[G]ld dog just lying at the fe[Am]et
Of a g[G]irl who once wore flowers in her h[F]air
And [C]my heart lies fifty miles ahead
[F]Underneath a bridge just out of si[C]ght
she si[G]ts beneath the covers of a b[Am]ed
Where she w[G]aits for me to meet her in the ni[F]ght
And t[C]his old town was named after a rose
That bl[F]ooms along the hillside in the cold gr[C]ound
But m[G]y heart has been broken and is cl[Am]osed
Like the fr[G]eeway that would take me out of t[F]own
[C]And just because I don't got no regrets
Yeah well t[F]hat don't mean I didn't get it wr[C]ong
M[G]y love is like a homemade summer dr[Am]ess
I[G] am just a lonely winter so[F]ng
And [C]I dust off the snowflakes from the hood
And [F]I talk to an old friend on the ph[C]one
She says, "[G]I think that the calm could do you [Am]good
Yo[G]u have been traveling so lo[F]ng"
So Happy [C]New Years babe, I guess this is goodbye
And I[F] hope that you find someone you can ho[C]ld
And i[G]f you hear that midnight whistle c[Am]ry
Please [G]think of me in Santa Rosa in the sn[F]ow
[C] [F] [C]  
[G] [Am] [G] [F]
