[C]A long [G]December and there’s [D]reason to [Am] believe

Maybe [C]this year will be [G]better than the [C (1)]last

[Am]I can't [C]remember the [G]last thing that you [D]said as you were

[Am]leavin', Now the [G]days go by so [C (1)]fast

And it's [G]one more day up [C]in the can[Am (1)]yons

And it's [G]one more night [C]in Hollywood[Am (1)]

If you [G]think that I could [C]be for[Am (1)]given

I wish you would

 

Chorus:  / G - C - / Am - C - / G - C - / Am - - - - /

 

[C]The smell of [G]hospitals in [D]winter

And the [Am]feeling that it's [C]all a lot of [G]oysters, but no

[C (1)]pearls

[Am]All at [C]once you look across[G] a crowded room[D]

To see the [Am]way that light [G]attaches to a [C (1)]girl

And it's [G]one more day up [C]in the can[Am (1)]yons

And it's [G]one more night [C]in Hollywood[Am (1)]

If you think [G]you might come to [C]California, [Am (1)]

I think you should

 

Repeat Chorus

 

[C]Drove up to [G]Hillside Manor [D]sometime after [Am]two a.m.

And [C]talked a little [G]while about the [C (1)]year

[Am]I guess the [C]winter makes you [G]laugh a little [D]slower,

Makes you [Am]talk a little [G]lower about the [C (1)]things you could not

show her

 

And it's been a [C]long [G]December and there's [D]reason to [Am]believe

Maybe [C]this year will be [G]better than the [C (1)]last

[Am]I can't [G]remember all the [D]times I tried to [Am]tell my myself

To [C]hold on to these [G]moments as they [C (1)]pass

And it's [G]one more day up [C]in the can[Am (1)]yons

And it's [G]one more night [C]in Hollywood[Am (1)]

It's [G]been so long since I've [C]seen the ocean[Am (1)]

I guess I should
