About this tab version
Same as some other versions I saw, but this one has all the lyrics written out. Also no distracting piano chords beside the guitar chords. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]

D G Em G
D G Em ...

[Verse 1]

G               D           A              Em
A long December and there's reason to believe
        G                D                G
Maybe this year will be better than the last
Em           G        D               A                   Em
I can't remember the last thing  you said as you were leavin'
        D            G
Now the days go by so fast


[Chorus]

            D            G                 Em
And it's one more day up in the canyons
            D             G                Em
And it's one more night in Hollywood
       D                  G           Em                      D
If you think that I could be forgiven...         I wish you would

          G
Na na na na
Em          G
Na na na na na na na na na
D         G   Em
Na na na na yeah


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus]

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

          G
Na na na na
Em          G
Na na na na na na na na na
D         G   Em
Na na na na yeah


[Solo over same chords]

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

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

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

          G
Na na na na
Em          G
Na na na na na na na na na
D         G   Em   D 
Na na na na yeah

          G
Na na na na
Em          G
Na na na na na na na na na
D         G   Em   D 
Na na na na yeah

          G
Na na na na
Em          G
Na na na na na na na na na
         G   Em   D 
Na na na na yeah

          G
Na na na na
Em          G
Na na na na na na na na na
D         G   Em  
Na na na na yeah

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
