SOUTH DECEMBER ROAD
Garry Morris
(George Green/Dave Robbins)
CD: Live
1995, In-House Records
Submitted by: Christopher R.

Intro

That (Am) old brown house is haunted 
Said the (F) young boys in the road 
Who threw (G) stones through faceless windows 
As the (Am) sky filled up with snow 
I watched them from a taxi 
And the (F) driver said of course 
That (G) one time late at night he'd seen 
A (Am) young girl on the porch 

And it (C) must have been a ghost he laughed 
I (F) shivered in the cold 
And the (G) snowflakes fell like ancient tears 
On (F) South De(G)cember (C) Road 

(Am) Something in my heart remembered 
(F) Long forgotten sins  
As they (G) echo through those empty rooms 
And (Am) scatter in the wind 
There's a branch that's barely hangin 
From a (F) dying chestnut tree 
And it (G) sways before the window where 
Your (Am) bedroom used to be 

And I (C) drove the old man's Plymouth 
Through the (F) tired Midwestern snow 
And you (G) met me on the corner down 
On (F) South De(G)cember (C) Road 

Solo

Now that (Am) drug store up on Main Street 
Has that (F) sign above the door 
They've been (G) satisfying customers 
Since (Am) 1934 
We drank cherry flavored cola's there 
When (F) we were seventeen 
But that (G) soda fountain's gone now 
So I (Am) bought a magazine 

And I (C) walked down toward the graveyard 
As the (F) wind began to blow 
and I (G) stumbled across the headstone 
Nearly (F) buried (G) in the (Am) snow 
And your (C) face filled up my memory 
And a (F) phantom filled my soul 
Like the (G) cracks that filled the sidewalk down 
On (F) South De(G)cember (Am) Road (F) (G) (Am)

Actually the intro is played on a six string bass w/distortion, not a baritone guitar. Perfect to the T dude
