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  
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)
