Okay everyone, I devised a little scheme to make this song a little
easier to play. This is what you do:

      Drop the song a half step without tuning you're guitar different.
The chords of the song, F Bb Gm      C
become the chords       E A  F#m and B

       Now put a capo on the first fret and play it in the dropped key.
This eliminates two bar chords and adds one, but makes for a lot less
moving around with bars. Overall it just makes it a little easier on the
wrists. The goes as follows.

           Capo 1st fret

[Intro] E A F#m A E A F#m

[Verse]
A        E                  B            F#m
A long December and there's reason to believe
       A                E               A
Maybe this year will be better than the last
  F#m      A         E                   B
I can't remember the last thing that you said
            F#m
as you were leavin'
        E             A
Now the days go by so fast

[Chorus]
         E               A         F#m    A
And it's one more day up in the canyons
         E                 A       F#m    A
And it's one more night in Hollywood
       E                  A        F#m -stop-           E
If you think that I could be forgiven...I wish you would
  A   F#m  A ....
na na na na. . .

[Verse 2]
The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

[Chorus]
         E               A         F#m    A
And it's one more day up in the canyons
         E                 A       F#m    A
And it's one more night in Hollywood
       E                  A         F#m -stop-                E
If you think you might come to California...I think you should
  A   F#m  A ....
na na na na. . .

[Verse 3]
Drove up to the Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about
the things you could not show her
And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

[Chorus]
         E               A         F#m    A
And it's one more day up in the canyons
         E                 A       F#m    A
And it's one more night in Hollywood
       E                      A         F#m -stop-               E
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean...I guess I should
  A   F#m  A ....
na na na na. . .

if you're using this for piano chords (as I'm doing) just hit "transpose up 1" and it will give you the actual correct piano key. Excellent work
