[Verse 1]

D          A                        D     
you fell down of course and then you 
                              A    D
got up of course and started over
           A               D
forgot my name of course
                       A     D  C
then you started to remember


                           G                    A       G A
pretty tough to think about the beginning of December
C                           G G*                        
pretty tough to think about     
                       A           D                            A    D
pretty tough to think about  yeah yeah pretty tough to think about

*:During that section of the song you strum the G twice in a row
and immediately following the music stops and the lyrics continue.

[Verse 2]

                  A          D                       A    D
you're looking down again       and then you look me over
              A           D                          A    D  C
we're laying down again         on a blanket in the clover
                             G                             A    G A
the same boy you've always known well I guess I haven't grown
C                                  G G
the same boy you've always known 
                             A   A  G <-(only play the first few strings of
the same boy you've always known         this G, then go right into the G5)


think of what the past did it could've lasted
so put it in your basket
I hope you know a strong man who can lend you a hand
lowering my casket        
[Solo]  The beginning definitely starts with a B|-2h4-- and I think you can just
make up the rest of it since its most likely improved anyway.  Just play around
with it and some of the stuff from the intro and I bet you'll get pretty close.

[Verse 3]

A                         D                       A       D
I thought this is just today and soon you'll be returning
             A                        D                                   A   D
the coldest blue ocean water cannot stop my heard and mind from burning
    C (just one strum or so)    G G                            A    A
everyone who's in the know says    that's exactly how it goes
 C (stop after one strum)             G G                        A**
and if there's anything good about me    I'm the only one who knows 

**: use an arpeggio up on the last A)
