[start of tab]

Intro (x2):
D-D-D-DUDUD-D-DU-D-DUDUD-D--UDUDU
D                Bm    G

Verse One:
Basic strumming pattern: D-D-D-DUDD-D-DU

D
 I'm so glad you made time to see me.
Bm
 How's life, tell me how's your family?
G                           D A
 I haven't seen them in a while.
D
 You've been good, busier then ever.
Bm
 We small talk, work and the weather
G                             D A
 Your guard is up and I know why.

Pre-Chorus:

Bm                   A 
 Cause the last time  you saw me
         D                          G
Is still burned in the back of your mind.
Bm                 A      G
 You gave me roses  and I left them there to die.

Chorus:

   D
So this is me swallowing my pride, 
            F#m                                     G
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night, 
         D                A
And I go back to December all the time.
   D
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you, 
F#m                                     G
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
       D                 A                            G
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
     Bm                A
I go back to December all the time.


 
(repeat intro)

Verse Two:

D
 These days I haven't been sleeping
Bm
Staying up playing back myself leaving, 
G                                       D A
When your birthday passed and I didn't call. 
      D
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
  Bm
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
G                                D A
Realized that I loved you in the fall.

PC:

 Bm                A                   D
Then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my 
G
mind.
            Bm                      A            G
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye. 

Chorus:
   D
So this is me swallowing my pride, 
F#m                                                G
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night.
         D                A
And I go back to December all the time.
   D
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you, 
F#m                                     G
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
       D                A                         G
I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
     Bm               A
I go back to December all the time

Solo (play intro chords)

 
Bridge:

            Bm                G               D
I miss your tanned skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, 
   A
so right, 
            Bm              G                   D
And how you held me in your arms that September night, 
                   A
The first time you ever saw me cry.
Bm
 Maybe this is wishful thinking, 
G
 Probably mindless dreaming
D                                      A
If we loved again I swear I'd love you right.

PC:
       Bm               A             G            
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
          Bm               A       G
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.

Chorus:
    D
But this is me swallowing my pride, 
F#m                                                G
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night, 
         D             A
And I go back to December.
D
Turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you, 
F#m                                     G
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
       D                A                         G
I'd go back to December turn around and make it alright.
       D                A                         G
I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
     D                A
I go back to December all the time.
