The Once And Future Carpenter Chords - The Avett Brothers


 
The Once And Future Carpenter Chords
Capo IV

Yes, I know the lyrics aren't quite right. But you'll get the idea.

Intro: Opening riff that I am yet to derive. Then:

C G C G

Verse 1
C              F           Dm                F   
I ain't from Texas, but I made my way from Dallas
       Dm                 G          C - G     
and I know the lonesome sound is following
C           F                    Dm       F
I ain't a gambler, but I can recognize a hand
             Dm                      G            C - G
and when to hold, when queens are staring back at me.

Interlude
e|--------0--------0----|
B|--------1--------0----|
G|--------2--------0----|
D|--------2--------2----|
A|-3-2-0--0--------2----|
E|-----------3-2-0-0----|x3

C - F - G

Verse 2 (Use chords from first verse).
Once I was a carpenter, man my hands were calloused
I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight
But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry
and I left the timbers where they lay

F                          Fm                       
Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
            C         Am            G
and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
               F                                
and when the black cloak drags upon the ground
          Fm                       C
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
           Am             G
well we're all in this together
      F                      Fm
If I live the life I'm given, I wont be scared to die

Verses 3+4. (Same as first two.)
And I don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pull me
and I followed till I finally lost my way
And now I spend my days in search of a woman we called purpose
And if I ever pass back through here town I'll stay

Chorus 2 (Same as first).
Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
and when the black cloak drags upon the ground
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
well we're all in this together
If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

(Interlude again then that cool little riff).

And my life is but a coin, pulled from an empty pocket
Dropped into a slot with dreams of sevens close behind
And hope and fear go with it, and moon and the sun go spinning
Like the numbers and fruits before my eyes

Bridge
C            F         G                C
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind

Chorus 3 (Same as first two).
Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
and when the black cloak drags upon the ground
I'll be ready to surrender, and remember
well we're all in this together
If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

About the artist behind The Once And Future Carpenter 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.
