Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Well first off I just have to say that this song is amazing. I didn't think Taylor 
could get much better but here we have it. This song is so different to all the 
stuff she's done before.
So here's the tab i've worked out. I hope everything's correct otherwise feel free 
to tell me if it isn't..
Enjoy!

No Capo

D Bm D Bm

D
 I'm so glad you made time to see me.
Bm
 How's life, tell me how's your family?
G                         Bm       A
 I haven't seen them in a whi-i-i-ile.
D
 You've been good, busier then ever.
Bm
 We small talk, work and the weather
G                            Bm       A
 Your guard is up and I know wh-i-i-i-y.
Bm                    A
Because the last time  you saw me
         D                          G
Is still burned in the back of your mind.
            Bm          A                  G
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.

   D
So this is me swallowing my pride,
            A                                       G
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that niiiight,
         Bm               A
And I go back to December all the time.
D
Turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you,
A                                                G
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were miiiine.
       Bm                A                            G
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it alright.
     Bm               A             D Bm D Bm
I go back to December all the time.

D
 These days I haven't been sleeping
Bm
 Staying up playing back myself leaving,
G                                       Bm     A
 When your birthday passed and I didn't ca-a-a-all.
       D
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
  Bm
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
   G                                  Bm     A
'Nd realized that I loved you in the fa-a-a-all.
        Bm           A                   D                  G
Then the  cold came,  the dark days when fear crept into my mind.
            Bm                      A            G
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was  goodbye.

   D
So this is me swallowing my pride,
            A                                       G
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that niiiight,
         Bm               A
And I go back to December all the time.
D
Turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you,
A                                                G
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were miiiine.
       Bm               A                        G
I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
     Bm               A           D Bm
I go back to December all the time

            Bm                A               D              G
I miss your tanned skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right,
            D               A                    Bm
And how you held me in your arms that September night,
                   A               Bm (x3 fast strum)
The first time you ever saw me cry.
                               A (x3 fast strum)
Maybe this is wishful thinking,
                           D
Probably mindless dreaming
            G                          A
If we loved again I swear I'd love you right.

       Bm               A               G
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
          Bm               A            G
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.

    D
But this is me swallowing my pride,
            A                                       G
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that niiiight,
         Bm               A
And I go back to December.
D
Turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you,
Bm                                                G
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were miiiine.
       D                A                       G
I'd go back to December turn around and make it alright.
       Bm               A                            G
I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
     Bm               A            D Bm
I go back to December all the time.
             D Bm (G)
All the time

It should be Em for the long words like whi-i-i-le. It should be Em then A not Bm then A. ^.^
