There are really only three parts to this song.  Very simple and very beautiful.

This is used for both intro and verses.  BE SURE TO RECOGNIZE THE OPEN G STRING AS
A BASS NOTE!  CAPO 2!

REPEAT THE ABOVE FOR INTRO AND VERSES!!

On a winter's sunday I go,
To clear away the snow,
To green the ground below,

April all an ocean away,
Is the better way to spend the day,
Keeping the winter at bay,

CHORUS
F             G               C              F
What were the words I mean to say before you left?
F    Am               F                          G
When I could see your breath lead where you were going to

INTRO/VERSE PROGRESSION

Maybe I should I just let it be,
Maybe it will all come back to me,
F       G
Sing Oh january, Oh (back to INTRO/VERSE)

How i lived a childhood in snow,
and all my teens in tow,
stuffed in a strata of clothes,

Hail the winter days after dark,
Wandering the gray memorial park,
A fleeting beating heart,

F             G               C              F
What were the words I mean to say before you left?
F    Am               F                          G
When I could see your breath lead where you were going to

INTRO/VERSE:

Maybe I should just let it be,.
and maybe it will all come back to me,
F         G      F      G
Sing all Januuu..All January Oh

INTRO/VERSE tab to fade out.
Little drunk while doing this, but you should get the idea.

I am required to enter 15 words just to post my rating which is ridiculous. I can't articulate a reason it just doesn't work. Sorry? Gees.
