Intro:
    F  Bb  Gm  Bb
    F  Bb  Gm

Verse:
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 as you were
Gm
leavin'
        F             Bb
Now the days go by so fast
         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 that I could be forgiven... I wish you would.

Chorus:
F            Bb    Gm            Bb
   Na, na-na, na. Na, na-na, na-na, na-na, na, na.
F            Bb    Gm
   Na, na-na, na. Yeah...

Verse:
 Bb              F            C
   The smell of hospitals in winter
        Gm                Bb            F
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no
 Bb
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
         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... I think you should

Chorus:
F            Bb    Gm            Bb
   Na, na-na, na. Na, na-na, na-na, na-na, na, na.
F            Bb    Gm
   Na, na-na, na. Yeah...

Bridge:
    F  Bb  Gm  Bb
    F  Bb  Gm

Verse:
 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               Bb
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not

show her
                Bb    F                    C           Gm
And it's been 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 all the times I tried to tell my 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 canyons
         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... I guess I should

Chorus:
F            Bb    Gm            Bb
   Na, na-na, na. Na, na-na, na-na, na-na, na, na.
F            Bb    Gm
   Na, na-na, na. Yeah...

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
