Intro/Verse:

A* C* C** C*2 Bb* F(Barre)

       A*     C*   C**      C*2
In the blizzard of Se-ven - ty Se - ven

     Bb*                        F(Barre)
The cars were just lumps on the snow
               A*       C*  C**  C*
And then later trippin at Seven-El-e-ven
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nada_surf/blizzard_of_77_crd_ver_2.html ]
     Bb*                            F(barre)
The shelves were stretching out of control
      A*
On a plane ride
     C*    C**       C*2      Bb*          F(barre)
The more it shakes, the more I have to let go
        A*             C*    C**  C*2
And the signal's still getting all mixed up
      Bb*                    F(Barre)
We're always doing damage control.

Chorus: These are not the names of the chords, but the shapes.

           Am                    G
But in the middle of the night I worry

    C
Its blurry even without light

        Am                    G
In the middle of the night I worry

     C
Its blurry even without light.'


Repeat Verse and Chorus.
Outro:

C C/Bb Am G :|| repeat until end,

end on C and let it ring.

Beautiful song, but confusing chords. Matthew Caws made a video explaining how it's played, 
search Youtube for "How to play blizzard of 77" and find the one by the user "Nada Surf". 
THe issue is, even though he shows the correct fingerings in the video, he's in open E. TO 
play with recording, use the above listed tuning (D).
