[Intro]
C      Am      Dm     G

[Verse]

C
Here comes the frost that freezes every year
Am
Shuttered windows hang the advent calendar
Dm
What are you doing on your own this frozen year
G
I know you're changing like the trees in Montpelier


C
You took the job that put you on the road
Am
For days and weeks in motels, sleepy TV glow
Dm
With static filtering through payphones in the snow
G
It drowns you at home by Christmases and love-you-so's

[Chorus]

Am
And all our promises come so easy
F
They fill the distances til our next meeting

C                         G
But you're always off the phone long before I'd prefer to be

C

[Following this C chord, descend down the C scale, hold last note then back into intro]

C      Am      Dm     G

[Verse]

C
and I know that we should get some money saved
Am
I've felt the kicking growing in me every day
Dm
oh we'll live fat & happy when you get home you will say
G
but I'd eat beans if you'd just stay

[Ending Chorus]

Am
But all our promises come so freely
F
When all I really want is you close to me
C                         G
But you were already out the door by the time it occurred to me

C

I've felt the kicking growing in me every day
oh we'll live fat & happy when you get home you will say
but I'd eat beans if you'd just stay
