Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I noticed a lot of mistakes in my first tab for this song so 
I thought I'd give it another go.

I listed all the chords fingerings I use at the bottom of the 
page; I use (alt) and (high) to indicate when I play the chord in 
a different position (Once again, see the bottom of the page).

Fantastic Song, have fun playing it!

Dm                F                     A#m
Mermaid sits on a Siwash Rock in the harbor
             C
Watching the children play
    Dm         F
And every day, sun or rain,
A#m                   C
Old Man kneels to the earth to pray
        Dm
For the rain and stars
        F
And the cars at the heart
A#m                     C
The dark, and windy, Vancouver
(break)                F
A black day in December


F/Am                              Am\G   
   She sees the worst is yet to come, yeah
  A#(alt)     A(alt)     Dm
A big wave on the horizon
F/Am                      Am\G
   The first wind blowing in
     A#(alt)         A(alt)      Dm
Left Stanley soldiers felled and broken
            A#m(alt)  C
And we went oh,       oh?


Dm                        F
And Old Man kneels to the earth
                A#m
In his mother's garden
              C
Where his own father was laid
    Dm            F  
And every day, sun or rain
A#m                 C
Mermaid sits on her rock and she prays
        Dm
For the salmon in the sea
        F
For the winged in the trees
        A#m
For the Old Man on his knees
               Dm
Oh and for the beauty in the park
        F
And the cars at the heart
       A#m
Her own sisters and her brothers
        C
And ten thousand friends and lovers
(break)              F   
Black day in December
F/A#m  C                   F    F/A#m   C
     A black day in December


Dm                F                     A#m
Mermaid sits on a tide wash rock in the harbor
               C
Where the blue heron would lay
    Dm         F
And every day, sun or rain,
A#m                     C
Old friends fall to the earth and decay
         Dm
With the city by the sea
      F
Sweet brine in the breeze
         A#m
With the mountains watching over
       C
Her Vancouver


(break)              F  
Black day in December
A#                        F  
   A black day in December
C(high)  C#(high)             F  
         Black day in December
A#                        F  
   A black day in December
C(high) C#(high) Dm(high)
Oh,     oh...
