Song:
-----

Dm                F                     A#
Mermaid sits on a side wash rock in the harbor
             C
Watching the children play
    Dm         F
And every day, sun or rain,
A#                    C
Old Man kneels to the earth to pray
        Dm
For the rain and stars
        F
And the cars at the heart
A#                      C
The dark, and windy, Vancouver
(break)             F
A black day in December


A                               A\G   
   She sees the worst is yet to come, yeah
  F           E          Dm
A big wave on the horizon
F/A                       A\G
   The first wind blowing in
     F               E                 Dm
Left Stanley soldiers felled and broken
            F   C
And we went oh, oh?


Dm                        F
And Old Man kneels to the earth
                A#
In his mother's garden
              C
Where his own father was laid
    Dm         F  
And every day, sun or rain
A#                  C
Mermaid sits on her rock and she prays
        Dm
For the salmon in the sea
        F
For the winged in the trees
        A#
For the Old Man on his knees
               Dm
Oh and for the beauty in the park
        F
And the cars at the heart
       A#
Her own sisters and her brothers
        C
And ten thousand friends and lovers
(break)           F   
Black day in December
A# C                   F  A#
   A black day in December


Dm                F                     A#
Mermaid sits on a tide wash rock in the harbor
               C
Where the blue heron would lay
    Dm         F
And every day, sun or rain,
A#                      C
Old friends fall to the earth and decay
         Dm
With the city by the sea
      F
Sweet brine in the breeze
         A#
With the mountains watching over
       C
Her Vancouver


(break)           F  
Black day in December
A#                     F  
   A black day in December
C  C#(high)          F  
   Black day in December
A#                     F  
   A black day in December
 C    C# Dm(high)
   Oh, oh...
