G                                  C
LAY BACK LAY BACK GO TO SLEEP MY MAN
G               C
WIPE THE BLOOD FROM YOUR FACE AND YOUR HANDS
G                C
FORGIVE YOURSELF IF YOU THINK YOU CAN
G        D           C
GO TO SLEEP GO TO SLEEP MY MAN

G                          C
21 DAYS LOST AT SEA I TOSSED
G               C
FOR TWENTY TWO YEARS NON STOP I FOUGHT
G                C
THROUGH THE DESERT PISS DRUNK AND CONFUSED I WALKED
G        D            C
I SPIT A TOOTH IN THE PALM OF MY HAND

LAY BACK LAY BACK GO TO SLEEP MY MAN
WIPE THE BLOOD FROM YOUR FACE AND YOUR HANDS
FORGIVE YOURSELF IF YOU THINK YOU CAN
GO TO SLEEP GO TO SLEEP MY MAN

WELL THE WIND AND THE TREES ARE GANG'IN UP ON ME
THEY SING MY FUNERAL SONG IN HARMONY
I KEEP ASKING FOR HELP FROM MY COMPANY BUT
THEY KEEP SINGIN AND SINGIN TO ME (LA LA LA LA LA )
AND SINGING AND SINGING TO ME  ..

I WISH THINGS WE DIFFERENT TRUE INDEED
BUT EVERYTHING IS SO SHALLOW, AS EVERYTHING ABOUT ME
I WISH I COULD JUST TAKE MY MONEY AND LEAVE
I HOPE THE PEOPLE ON THE GROUND UNDERSTAND
I HOPE THE PEOPLE OUT THERE WILL UNDERSTAND


LAY BACK LAY BACK GO TO SLEEP MY MAN
WIPE THE BLOOD FROM YOUR FACE AND YOUR HANDS
FORGIVE YOURSELF IF YOU THINK YOU CAN
GO TO SLEEP GO TO SLEEP MY MAN

About the artist behind Go To Sleep Chords:

The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band that originated in Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Seth Avett and Scott Avett who play the guitar and banjo, respectively, and Bob Crawford, who plays the stand-up bass. They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. Risen from the ashes of Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, The Avett Brothers combine old-time country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "Heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." The group themselves eschews labels, feeling that "none would do the music the justice. It's simply left up to each person to extract his or her own account from the Avett's music."

In the past year, The Avett Brothers have gone from relative unknowns to the poster children of a brand new and rapidly growing genre of American music. And while critics and fans alike have trouble agreeing on just what that genre should be called (indie roots, folk-punk, grungegrass, the list goes on and on), no one seems to have any trouble agreeing on the fact that The Avett Brothers are taking American roots music to brand new and exciting places.

Their live performances showcase their use of three-part harmony and southern rock feel, and are admired for being intense, energetic, and soulful.

The band are currently signed to Ramseur Records, based in Concord, NC. Other artists on the label include The Everybodyfields, Bombadil, Martin Stephenson and Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers.
