    Valley Winter Song

    Fountains Of Wayne

     
    Capo on 3rd fret
     
     
    Intro:  G     -     Bm     - C  Cadd9hC - C  Cadd9hC      (x4)
    (Cadd9 : x30010. Hammer-on middle finger to change from Cadd9 to C)
     
    Em          C             G
      Hey sweet Annie, don't take it so bad
    D                              A7
     you know the summer's coming soon
               C               D            Bm             C
    though the interstate is choking under salt and dirty sand
            Am                               C
    and it seems the sun is hiding from the moon
     
    G            C             D          G
     Your daddy told you when you were a girl
         Bm                                     C
    the kind of things that come to those who wait
        C         G          C            G
    so give it a rest girl, take a deep breath girl
         Am                        C
    and meet me at the Bay State tonight
     
    ----------
    Chorus:
     
          D                    C                G
    The snow is coming down on our New England town
        D                          Am    
    and it's been falling all day long
      C           D     C           Em
    what else is new?, what could I do?
        C                                     G
    I wrote a valley winter song to play for you
    ----------
     
    G Bm C C  (x2)
     
    Em           C            G 
      And late December, can drag a man down
    D                          A7
     you feel it deep in your gut
    C               D                 Bm              C  
     short days and afternoons spent pottering around
          Am                                   C
    in a dark house with the windows painted shut
     
    G          C         D         G
     Remember New York staring outside
    Bm                              C
     as wreckless winter made its way
     
      C         G             C           G
    from Staten Island to the Upper West Side
    Am                                 C
    whiting out our streets along the way
     
    ----------
    Chorus 2:
     
          D                    C                G
    The snow is coming down on our New England town
        D                          Am    
    and it's been falling all day long
      C           D      C        Em
    what else is new?, what can I do?
         C                                       G
    but sing this valley winter song I wrote for you
