"The New Year" Chords
by Parachute
Chords by Joe G

Capo on 1

Em* refers to 022003 (relative to the capo).  Basically an Em with your pinky on 
the 3rd fret of the high E string.

An asterisk (*) by itself indicates a muted chord, it's there to help show the pace of the song.


Intro:
F   F

F   F


F                           *               Dm
I'm sick of cleaning up the mess you left behind 
            F
[Oh, what a way to start the new year!]
F                         *                             Dm
On my hands and knees and cleaning up the dirt and grime 
            F
[Oh, what a way to start the new year!]


F                        *
I'm sick of holding both ends of the tightrope 
Dm                             F
Cause when you fall all that's left is old high hopes for
F                           *                          Dm
me.  Stretched thin, to the end, trying to keep it all in 
           F
Oh, what a way to start the new year!


G                          Dm
 Won't you say that it's alright? 
G                       F
 Won't you tell me it's okay? 



Because there's...
F                 G     F         F
Three hundred and sixty-four more days 
F          F                  G          F       Dm*
I might be smiling but you'll never even hear me say 
       Dm*     Am/G   F
That I like it in the shadows 
                 Dm*                F
Counting down to zero just to start again 
          G
Oh what a way to start the new year 


F  F  F  F

F                     *             Dm
Don't get me wrong, I hate this holiday 
        F
[What a way to start the new year!]
F                      F                         Dm
On my hands and knees, choosing what I have to say 
        F
[What a way to start the new year!]
F                         F
I never realized it could mean so much 
        Dm                      F                      F
Just to go to bed later when we have to get up all the same, 
      F                        Dm                  F
And we scream and clap for the end of what was and what we've become, oh...


G                         Dm
Won't you say that it's alright? 
G                      F
Won't you tell me it's okay? 


'Cause we have...
F                 G     F         F
Three hundred and sixty-four more days 
F          F                  G          F       Dm
I might be smiling but you'll never even hear me say 
       Dm*      Am/G   F
That I like it in the shadows 
                 Dm*                 F
Counting down to zero just to start again 
          G                        
Oh what a way to start the new year 


Dm Em F                    Dm*
        Was it really that bad? 
Dm    F                 Dm*
        And could it be better? 
Dm                    Em
        Well, I don't know,
         F                F
But with you I still have hope 
     Dm            F                F
That this... could be... oh, my year!


*                 G     F         F
Three hundred and sixty-four more days,
            F               G               F          Dm*
One million chances left to find you and to see your face 
       Dm*       Am/G  F                       Dm*
Making light out of my shadows, finally get to zero 
                     F     G
And maybe we'll both say,   that we have...

F                 G     F         F
Three hundred and sixty-four more days
            F               G               F          Dm*
One million chances left to find you and to see your face 
       Dm        Am/G  F                       Dm*
Making light out of my shadows, finally get to zero 
                     F
And maybe we'll both say 
            G                      F
"Oh, what a way to start the new year!"
