Intro: D Bm G - 2x -


D
I'm so glad you made the time to see me
Bm
How's life, tell me how's your family
G                        D   A
I haven't seen them in a while
D
You've been good, busier than ever
Bm
We small talk, work and the weather
G                              D  A
You're guard is up, and I know why


Bm                    A
Because the last time you saw me
           D                          G
It's 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 
            Gbm
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D                A              
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't
- D  -
Nothing but missing you
Gbm      
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G
When you were mine 
       D
I'd go back to December, 
A                           G 
Turn around and make it all right
     Bm               A            
I go back to December all the time


D Bm G - 2x -


D                         
These days I haven't been sleeping
Bm
Stayin' up playing back myself leaving
G                                      D  A 
When your birthday passed and I didn't call
       D            
Then I think about summer all the beautiful times 
Bm
I watch you laughing from the passenger side
G                               D  A
And realized I loved you in the fall


Bm                     A
And then the cold came the dark days
     D                  G
When fear crept into my mind
            Bm                   
You gave me all your love and
      A           G
All I gave you was goodbye


   D
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            Gbm
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D                A             
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't
- D  -
Nothing but missing you
Gbm      
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G
When you were mine 
       D
I'd go back to December, 
A                         G 
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A            
I go back to December all the time


D  Bm G - 2x -
 

            Bm            G 
I miss your tan skin your sweet smile
   D              A
So good to me, so right
            Bm              G
And how you held me in your arms
               D
That September night
                   A           Bm -stop  
The first time you ever saw me cry
                              G -stop
Maybe this is wishful thinking
                          D
Probably mindless dreaming
- D  -                                    A      
If you 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 
            Gbm                             
Standing in front of you saying 
                    G
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
D              A
Back to December...
   D  
It turns out freedom ain't
- D  -            
Nothing but missing you
Gbm                              
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     G  
When you were mine 
       D  
I'd go back to December 
A                           G                           
Turn around and make it all right
       D         
I'd go back to December
A                         G
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A         
I go back to December all the time

D  Bm G         D  Bm G      
        All the time

      – I took that from under the comment section. They ask you to not ask for strumming patterns… I recommend you google it or listen carefully to the song :)

  9. Rhinestone_Boy

    After the final Bb add an F and say All the time again. It sounds better

  10. alittleinfinity

    I found down two half steps was easiest:)

  11. Up 3 half steps :)

  12. it was so great it was sort oflike easy because i’m a fast learner on ukuleles unless the chords to do are long.the chords of his song was hard hard for me on the first time of mine.when i tried it again i got so mastered it already so that’s how i learn the song it was great though it was tiring
