[Intro]

C (C) Am F C (C) Am F


[Verse]

C
 I'm so glad you made time to see me 
Am                     
 How's life, tell me how's your family 
F                         C G
 I haven't seem them in a while 
C         
 You've been good, busier than ever 
Am
 We small talk, work and the weather 
F                            C G
 Your guard is up and I know why 


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                  G
 Because the last time you saw me 
             C                      F
Is still burned in the back of your mind 
            Am          G                  F
You gave me roses and I left them there to die 


[Chorus]

   C
So this is me swallowing my pride
            Em                                      F
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night 
         C                G
And I go back to December all the time 
    C                                    
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you    
Em                                   F                                      
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine                                                
     C                 G                        F
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright 
     Am               G
I go back to December all the time 


[Instrumental]

C (C) Am F C (C) Am F


[Verse]

C                              
 These days I haven't been sleeping 
Am
Staying up playing back myself leaving 
F                                       C G
 When your birthday passed and I didn't call 
       C                                                  
Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times 
  Am
I watched you laughing from the passenger side 
   F                            G
And realized I loved you in the fall


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                      G
 And then the cold came, the dark days 
     C                  F
When fear crept into my mind 
            Am                      G           F
You gave me all your love And all I gave you was goodbye


[Chorus]

   C
So this is me swallowing my pride
            Em                                      F
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night 
         C                G
And I go back to December all the time 
   C                                    
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you    
Em                                   F                                      
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine                                                
     C                 G                         F
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
     Am               G
I go back to December all the time 


[Instrumental]

C (C) Am F C (C) F


[Bridge]

            Am                F
I miss your tan skin and your sweet smile
   C              G
So good to me, so right 
            Am              F                   C
And how you held me in your arms that September night 
                   G
The first time you ever saw me cry 

Am
 Maybe this is wishful thinking
F 
 Probably mindless dreaming 
C                                            G
 But if we loved again, I swear I'd love you right
 
       Am                F             G
I'd go back in time and change it, but I can't
          Am               F           G 
So if the chain is on your door, I understand 


[Chorus]

     C
But this is me swallowing my pride
            Em                                      F
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night 
         C             G
And I go back to December 
   C                                   
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
Em                                   F
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine 
     C                 G                        F
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright 
     Am                G                         F
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
     Am               G 
I go back to December all the time 


[Outro]

C (C) Am F        C (C) Am F
          All the time

the intro and stuff doesnt sound right, otherwise it sounds great. and in the part where "i'd go back in time and change it..." in that little part, it doesnt sound right when i sing it like she does on the album version. like the chords don't go with the vocals at that part.

Excellent tab. Worked through it myself and came up pretty much dead on to your tab! Great job!
