regular G

G                        C
  Woke up to sun streaming in my room
G2                             D
  Warm beach front palm December afternoon
G                            C
  You close your eyes, another year blows by
G2                           D <-------G-----------start struming
  Somewhere in the wind, just another lie

  G                                  C
My parents sent a Christmas card, and tennis shoes
   G2                                D
We understand you staying, and we're proud of you
          G                                  C
There's a well-rehearsed disinterest, in the atmosphere
                G2                                      D       G
I don't know if that's what this time gave me, or if it lead me here

[Pre-Chorus]
(strum once)
      C         D    Em
And I played so many parts
             C           D      Em
I don't know which one's really me
      C       D     Em <---D/F# -------Start strumming
Don't know if I can take

[Chorus]
G              D 
Another Christmas in L.A.
        Em            C
Another pitcher of sangria
      G              D
In an empty beach café
        G              D
Another Christmas in L.A.
        Em           C
Hold me tighter Carmelita
             G              D
I don't know how long I can stay

[Verse 2]
G                         C
Left a girl behind, in my old man's truck
G2                           D
Sometimes I wonder where she ended up
G                            C
Maybe she got married, had a couple of kids
G2                                      D
Who do you think you're fooling man, of course she did


[Pre-Chorus]
           C      D      Em
I'm walking in Dan Tana's bar
        C         D     Em
Try and talk with Harry Dean
        C       D     Em     D/F#
I don't know if I can take


[Chorus]
        G              D
Another Christmas in L.A.
        Em              C
Another casting call on Thursday
      G                D
For a job that doesn't pay
        G              D
Another Christmas in L.A.
        Em           C
Another burnout in a tank top
              G             D
That seems to bask in his decay
         Em              C
A fat protagonist in flip flops
          G             D
With an extensive resume
          C       D   Em   D/F#
From Echo Park to Catalina

[Bridge]
G             D               Em
Dreaming of a white Christmas
    C     G       D
The one I used to know
G                  D               Em
Tree tops glisten, children listen
   C            G      D
To sleigh bells in the snow

G D Em C G D

        G              D
Another Christmas in L.A

Em C G D D/F# G
