Okay everyone, I devised a little scheme to make this song a little
easier to play. This is what you do:

      Drop the song a half step without tuning you're guitar different.
The chords of the song, F Bb Gm      C
become the chords       E A  F#m and B

       Now put a capo on the first fret and play it in the dropped key.
This eliminates two bar chords and adds one, but makes for a lot less
moving around with bars. Overall it just makes it a little easier on the
wrists. The goes as follows.

           Capo 1st fret

           Intro: E A F#m A E A F#m


A        E                  B            F#m
A long December and there's reason to believe
       A                E               A
Maybe this year will be better than the last
  F#m      A         E                   B
I can't remember the last thing that you said
as you were leavin'
        E             A
Now the days go by so fast
         E               A         F#m    A
And it's one more day up in the canyons
         E                 A       F#m    A
And it's one more night in Hollywood
       E                  A        F#m -stop-           E
If you think that I could be forgiven...I wish you would
  A   F#m  A ....
na na na na. . .

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in the conyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California...I think you should

Drove up to the Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about
the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's been one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean...I guess I should


        there it is, just tryin to make it easier. . .any questions er
