Song: January Hymn
Band: The Decemberists
Album: The King is Dead
Tabbed by: Jon Ransom

I'm compiling this tab using jimts and Don Tago's versions, so thanks goes
to them for laying all of the ground work.  The only major change to this
tab you'll see are the Csus2 and Csus4 chords that Colin uses to fill in
between the FM7 chords.  I've seen him play this live and it isn't that
difficult to get the hang of the chord changes.

Standard Tuning with Capo on 2nd Fret

Verse 1:
C              F  G     C Csus2 C Csus4     
On a winter's Sunday I go   
    F      G       C  Csus2 C Csus4
To clear away the snow
     F         G      C  Csus2 C Csus4  F  G
And green the ground below
C             F  G    C Csus2 C Csus4
April all an ocean away
    F               G                C  Csus2 C Csus4   
Is this the better way to spend the day?  
F           G         C Csus2 C Csus4  F  G
Keeping the winter at bay


Chorus 1:
F               G                C              F
What were the words I meant to say before you left?
    Am                  F                        G  G7  G6  G
When I could see your breath lead where you were going to
C               F    G      C  Csus2 C Csus4
Maybe I should just let it be
     F             G                C Csus2 C Csus4
And maybe it will all come back to me
      F     G       C
Sing: O, Janu--ary, O


C  Csus2  C  Csus4  FM7  G  Gsus2  x2


Verse 2:
C              F    G        C Csus2 C Csus4     
How I lived a childhood in snow
     F      G       C  Csus2 C Csus4 
And all my teens in tow
     F         G        C  Csus2 C Csus4  F  G
Stuffed in strata of clothes
C           F    G           C  Csus2 C  Csus4      
Pale the winter days after dark
F               G             C  Csus2 C Csus4
Wandering the gray memorial park
   F         G          C  Csus2 C Csus4 F  G
A fleeting beating of hearts 


Chorus 2:
F               G               C              F
What were the words I meant to say before she left?
    Am                  F                        G  G7  G6  G
When I could see her breath lead where she was going to
C               F    G      C  Csus2 C Csus4
Maybe I should just let it be
     F             G                C Csus2 C Csus4
And maybe it will all come back to me
      F    G    F    G       C   
Sing: O, Janu-, O Janu--ary, O
