Song: "January Hymn"


D           G   A    D
On a winter Sunday I go
    G      A      D
To clear away the snow
    G       A         D   G  A
And green the ground below

D            G  A    D
April all an ocean away
    G               A               D
Is this the better way to spend the day?
G            A        D    G  A
Keeping the winter at bay

G             A                  D              G
What were the words I meant to say before you left?
      Bm              G                     A        A7
When I could see your breath lead where you were going to

D              G    A       D
Maybe I should just let it be
     G             A              D
and maybe it will all come back to me
   G       A   D
Sing oh January oh!

How I lived a childhood in snow
And all my teens in tow
Stuffed in strata of glow

Hail the winter days after dark
Wandering the gray memorial park
A fleeting beating of hearts

What were the words I meant to say before she left?
When I could see her breath lead where she was going to

D              G    A       D
Maybe I should just let it be
     G             A              D
And maybe it will all come back to me
   G       A
Sing oh Janu...
G     A   D
Oh January oh

Alright, because I couldn't have worked it out without the chords above, I wanted to post my take on the verse riff here on this tab, here goes:

It fits with a Capo 2
|-----------0---3-------|
|-1---------1---3-------|
|-0-------0-2-0---------|
|-2-0-2-3-------------0-|
|-3-------------2-0h2---|
|---------------3-------|

It repeats back to the strummed C and continues. Save me from trying to put counting into tablature, the riff is pretty clear on the track.

I hope it helps,
Cheers
