‣ Counting Crows
 
[Intro]
 
F Bb Gm Bb F Bb Gm
 
 
[Verse 1]
 
Bb         F                  C            Gm
 A long December and there's reason to believe
       Bb               F                Bb
Maybe this year will be better than the last
Gm          Bb         F                   C
 I can't remember the last thing that you said
             Gm
as you were leavin'
         F            Bb
Now the days go by so fast
 
 
[Chorus]
 
          F              Bb          Gm
And it's one more day up in the canyons
          F                 Bb       Gm
And it's one more night in Hollywood
        F                  Bb        
If you think that I could be forgiven,
Gm            Bb
 I wish you would
 
F         Bb
Na na na na
Gm          Bb
Na na na na na na na na na
F         Bb       Gm
Na na na na yeah
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
Bb             F               C
 The smell of hospitals in winter
          Gm               Bb           F       
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, 
       Bb
but no pearls
Gm       Bb              F              C
 All at once you look across a crowded room
            Gm               F           Bb
To see the way that light attaches to a girl
 
 
[Chorus]
 
          F              Bb          Gm
And it's one more day up in the canyons
          F                 Bb       Gm
And it's one more night in Hollywood
              F                 Bb      Gm 
If you think you might come to California, 
             Bb
I think you should
 
 
[Verse 3]
 
Bb            F              C                   Gm
 Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
     Bb                F             Bb
And talked a little while about the year
Gm            Bb               F               C
 I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
           Gm            F    
Makes you talk a little lower 
           Bb
about the things you could not show her
 
 
[Bridge]
 
Bb                     F      
And it's been a long December 
            C              Gm
and there's reason to believe
       Bb               F                Bb
Maybe this year will be better than the last
Gm          Bb             F                C
 I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
      Gm             F          Bb
To hold on to these moments as they pass
          F              Bb          Gm
And it's one more day up in the canyon
          F                 Bb       Gm
And it's one more night in Hollywood
           F                  Bb         Gm  
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean, 
           Bb
I guess I should
 
 
[Outro]
 
Na... Na... Na...
