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                F                     A#
Mermaid sits on a side wash rock in the harbor
             C
Watching the children play
    Dm         F
And every day, sun or rain,
A#                    C
Old Man kneels to the earth to pray
        Dm
For the rain and stars
        F
And the cars at the heart
A#                      C
The dark, and windy, Vancouver
(break)             F
A black day in December


A                               A\G   
   She sees the worst is yet to come, yeah
  F           E          Dm
A big wave on the horizon
F/A                       A\G
   The first wind blowing in
     F               E                 Dm
Left Stanley soldiers felled and broken
            F   C
And we went oh, oh?


Dm                        F
And Old Man kneels to the earth
                A#
In his mother's garden
              C
Where his own father was laid
    Dm         F  
And every day, sun or rain
A#                  C
Mermaid sits on her rock and she prays
        Dm
For the salmon in the sea
        F
For the winged in the trees
        A#
For the Old Man on his knees
               Dm
Oh and for the beauty in the park
        F
And the cars at the heart
       A#
Her own sisters and her brothers
        C
And ten thousand friends and lovers
(break)           F   
Black day in December
A# C                   F  A#
   A black day in December


Dm                F                     A#
Mermaid sits on a tide wash rock in the harbor
               C
Where the blue heron would lay
    Dm         F
And every day, sun or rain,
A#                      C
Old friends fall to the earth and decay
         Dm
With the city by the sea
      F
Sweet brine in the breeze
         A#
With the mountains watching over
       C
Her Vancouver


(break)           F  
Black day in December
A#                     F  
   A black day in December
C  C#(high)          F  
   Black day in December
A#                     F  
   A black day in December
 C    C# Dm(high)
   Oh, oh...

"Side Wash" should be "Siwash" as in Siwash Rock in Vancouver's Stanley Park.
