Ok, here's my version of Winter by Tori Amos as far as I could
figure it out. It's hard to play Tori's ingenious music on guitar
but I decided to give it a shot.
This is definitely _not_ the original key, but I didn't
manage to get any closer yet. But maybe this helps some of
you to get it right. I'd be happy to get corrections
and suggestions at twist@uni-paderborn.de


Winter   - Tori Amos


Am       G         C   D   G   Am
Snow can wait I forgot my mittens

         G           C        Am
wipe my nose get my new boots on

              G                       C     D  G  Am
Get a little warm in my heart when I think of Winter

          G           C        Am
I put my hand in my father's glove

Am     G             C     D    G  Am
I run off where the DRIFTS GET DEEPER

Am        G      C                Am
sleeping beauty trips me with a frown

Am       G                C    D  G     Am
I hear a voice "you must learn to stand up

          G                 C          Am
for yourself cause I can't always be around" he says

C                           D

years go by and I'm here still waiting

Am    G              C       Am   
withering where some snowman was

Am     G                  C   D   G  Am
mirror mirror where's the crystal palace

Am     G        C     Am
but I only can see myself

Am      G          C     D   G Am
SKATING around the truth who I am

Am      G          C              Am
but I know dad the ice is getting thin

Am      G                    C     D   G  Am
hair is grey and the and the fires are burning

Am      G      C       Am
so many dreams on the shelf

Am      G        C   D  G  Am  
you say I wanted you to be PROUD of me

Am     G         C       C 
I always wanted that myself he says

C                           D

C                           D
when you gonna love you as much as I do

C                           D
when you gonna make up your mind

      F                 C         Am
cause things are gonna change so fast

F              C                Am
all the WHITE HORSES have gone ahead 

F                    C               Am
I tell you that I'll always want you near 

F                    C         Am
you say that things change my dear


NOTE: I think it sounds better if you don't play all the
      chord changes but let the previous chord fade and 
      play about every second chord.

Bye 

Jochen
