Stick Season - Noah Kahan

Piano notes for 'Stick Season' by Noah Kahan 
 

Verse 1:

As you promised me that I was more than all the miles combined
A    B      C#B     C#  B  C# B   C#     B   C#  B    C#    B D 

You must've had yourself a change of heart like halfway through the drive
C#    B A     C#    B C#   B   C#     B  C#    A    C# A        A      B   D 

Because your voice trailed off exactly as you passed my exit sign
C# B        A    C#       B    B  A C# B  A   B    C#      B  A B  F#

Kept on drivin' straight and left our future to the right
C#   C# C# C#  C#       B    A   B  C# B   A  B    D 

Now I am stuck between my anger and the blame that I can't face
C#   B  A   C#    C# C#  C# C# A   A   B     C#      A  B  D    D 

And memories are somethin' even smoking weed does not replace
C#     A C#     C#   C# B     C# B   A B       C#     B     B   B D

And I am terrified of weather 'cause I see you when it rains
C#   B A  C# B B  A  C# B       A     B C#  B     A   B   F#

Doc told me to travel, but there's Covid on the planes
C#   C# C# C# C# B  A     B       C# B  A   A    D 



Chorus:

And I love Vermont, but it’s the season of the sticks
B    A  E        E E     C#  E   C#   E E    E   E    F#


And I saw your mom, she forgot that I existed
D    E   E    E      E        E   C# E   E   E  E F# C#

And it's half my fault, but I just like to play the victim
B     C# C#  B     B      A  A  B   C#  B   B   A    B A 

I'll drink alcohol 'til my friends come home for Christmas
A    C#   C# B B  A C#  C#       B       B     A     B A 

And I'll dream each night of some version of you
A      A    E        E      E    E    E       E E    E  F# A 

That I might not have, but I did not lose
B     B   B      B     B      B  B  B  B   B A 

Now you're tire tracks and one pair of shoes
A        B      B B   B      A    B    B    B  B A 

And I'm split in half, but that'll have to do
A       B    B   B B A   A   A B     B     B  B A G# A


Verse 2:

So I thought that if I piled     something good on all my bad
E   E    E       C# C# B C# C#  C# B       C#   B  C#  B D 

That I could cancel out the darkness I inherited from Dad
C#   B  A     C# B   C#  B    C# B  C# BC# BC#  B   D 

No, I am no longer funny 'cause I miss the way you laugh
C#  B  A  B   B A    C# B    A    B  C#   B    A     B    B 

You once called me "forever," now you still can't call me back
A     C#     C#  C#   C# B A    A    B   C#    B    A    B    D 


Chorus:

And I love Vermont, but it’s the season of the sticks
B    A  E        E E     C#  E   C#   E E    E   E    F#


And I saw your mom, she forgot that I existed
D    E   E    E      E        E   C# E   E   E  E F# C#

And it's half my fault, but I just like to play the victim
B     C# C#  B     B      A  A  B   C#  B   B   A    B A 

I'll drink alcohol 'til my friends come home for Christmas
A    C#   C# B B  A C#  C#       B       B     A     B A 

And I'll dream each night of some version of you
A      A    E        E      E    E    E       E E    E  F# A 

That I might not have, but I did not lose
B     B   B      B     B      B  B  B  B   B A 

Now you're tire tracks and one pair of shoes
A        B      B B   B      A    B    B    B  B A 

And I'm split in half, but that'll have to do
A       B    B   B B A   A   A B     B     B  B A G# A


Bridge:

Oh, that'll have to do
C#  C# C#  E   C# C# B 

My other half was you
C# C# C# F# C# B A 

I hope this pain's just passin' through, but I doubt it
E   E      E    E       D    D C#   C#        A   C# C# B



Chorus:

And I love Vermont, but it’s the season of the sticks
B    A  E        E E     C#  E   C#   E E    E   E    F#


And I saw your mom, she forgot that I existed
D    E   E    E      E        E   C# E   E   E  E F# C#

And it's half my fault, but I just like to play the victim
B     C# C#  B     B      A  A  B   C#  B   B   A    B A 

I'll drink alcohol 'til my friends come home for Christmas
A    C#   C# B B  A C#  C#       B       B     A     B A 

And I'll dream each night of some version of you
A      A    E        E      E    E    E       E E    E  F# A 

That I might not have, but I did not lose
B     B   B      B     B      B  B  B  B   B A 

Now you're tire tracks and one pair of shoes

And I'm split in half, but that'll have to do
A       B    B   B B A   A   A B     B     B  B A G# A
