    The smell of hospitals in winter
    And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls

    DO THE NA NA NA THING AGAIN RIGHT HERE
    A Long December
    by The Counting Crows
    from Recovering The Satellites
    brought to you by Tony Donato and Sal Ferrarello
    NOTE: This is A Long December in a different key than already exists
    in the file by Michael A. Mazur. I find this key easier to play in and
    it
    still sounds great.
