                           Snowbound    (Genesis)

     C/A(3rd fret)  /  /  /  G  /  /  /

     C/A                          G
     Lay your body down upon the midnight snow
     C/A                         G
     Feel the cold of winter in your hair
     Cmaj7                  E7sus                     Gm
     Here in a world of your own, in a casing that's grown
             C/A          Gm           C/A
     To the children's delight, that arrived on the night

     C/A                           G
     Here they come to play their magic games
     C/A                         G
     Carving names upon your frozen hand
     Cmaj7                  E7sus                       Gm
     Here in a world of your own, like a sleeper whose eyes
              C/A           Gm           C/A
     Sees the pain with surprise, as it smothers your cries
              A
     They'll never, never know

     C/G              G      C/G               G
     Hey, there's a snowman, hey, hey what a snowman
       D          Amaj7     D               Amaj7
     Pray for the snowman, ooh, ooh, what a snowman
                  F            C
     They say a snow year's a good year
      Bb              Am                 C/A  /  /  /  G  /  /  /
     Filled with the love of all who lie so deep

     C/A                          G
     Smiling faces tear your body to the ground
     C/A                           G
     Covered red that only we can see
     Cmaj7                    E7sus                        Gm
     Here in a ball that they made, from the snow on the ground
            C/A       Gm            C/A
     See it rolling away, with wild eyes to the sky
              A
     They'll never, never know

     C/G              G      C/G           G
     Hey, there's a snowman, hey, what a snowman
       D          Amaj7     D               Amaj7
     Pray for the snowman, ooh, ooh, what a snowman
                  F            C
     They say a snow year's a good year
      Bb              Am                 A
     Filled with the love of all who lie so deep

     C/G                   G      C/G                 G
     Hey, there goes the snowman, hey, there what a snowman
      D                  Amaj7     D            Amaj7
     Hey, there lies the snowman, hey, he was a snowman
                  F            C
     They say a snow year's a good year
      Bb              Am                 A
     Filled with the love of all who lie so deep      Repeat chorus and fade

One of my teachers said that the "C/A" is actually an A minor chord. I think it's an Am7, though. That would make sense because the song is in G, right? So the Am7 is the ii chord.

This is an old OLGA tab. I really like this guy's tabs and learned a lot from them. I don't think he is on U-G though.

One of my favorite Genesis songs. Most under-rated album in Rock history.
