"This Could Be My Year" (words and music my Jacob Slichter)
Semisonic
from the album "Feeling Strangely Fine"  (MCAD/11733)
Transcribed by Daniel Pike (dpike0@gtc.georgetown.ky.us)

Intro: D* A* Em G (4x)
* Mess around with lifting your finger off the second fret of the first string
on D and the second fret of the fifth string on A and playing them open
until you get the rhythm the way it is on the recording.  This only
happens in the intro, though.
Verse:

D                     A
Thursday's crush is a Friday night rush
      Em             G
And a Monday morning cry
         A                     G
It's the tail that you keep chasing
       A               G
And it gets away every time
D                       A
New Year's Eve and it's hard to believe
        Em              G
Another Zodiac's gone around
          A                        G
While you drank yourself high on hoping
                A                      G
And watched the ceiling spin from the ground

Pre-chorus:

F#
Counting down from ten it's time
       Bm
To make your annual prayer
F#
Secret Santa in the sky
     Bm                E
When will I get my share

Chorus:

         Em             D
Then you tell yourself
         A              E
What you want to hear
          Em              G
Cause you have to believe
          A          D A Em G
This will be my year
                D    A Em G
This will be my year

Verse:

D                            A   
Pound your fist and cross it off your list
        Em                      G
But you know you're not that strong
         A                     G   
When the man at the stop light catches you
          A                      G
Singing along to a brand new song

Well maybe it's
D                      A
Trash or the overnight smash that brings your 
Em                            G
Ship crashing through the wall
           A                        G
So you can make your grand departure
       A                       G
>From a world getting way too small

Pre-chorus:

F#
One wheel in the ditch another
Bm
Spinning in the air
F#
Put your pedal down to the floorboard but you're not 
Bm               E
Getting anywhere

Chorus:

         Em             D
Then you tell yourself
         A              E
What you want to hear
          Em              G
Cause you have to believe
          A          D A Em G
This will be my year
                D    A Em G
This will be my year
                D    A Em G
This will be my year
                D    A Em G
This will be my year

Outro: D A Em G until end.
