Capo IV

Intro: G  D  Em  C (Repeat once)

G          D     Em         C
One comes of it, love it, love it
G      D     Em           C
Let go of it, love comes from it
G         D       Em        C
We're not of this world for long.

G         D       Em        C
Faith and promise keep me honest
G        D       Em      C
When starvation, falls upon us
G        D       Em       C
Daylight told me he would be.

G  D  Em  C

G         D           Em      C
Gone with cold words, spoke among hers
G        D      Em          C
Wretched is the tongue of their world
G         D       Em       C
We're not of that world at all
G         D   Em
We will never be.

Cm          G  D       Em
Wouldn't it be fine to stand
Bm          C                   G        D
behind the words we say in the best of times?
G      D              Em
Oh and you and I know all too well
Bm                  C        G     Bm       C      D
about the hell and paradise right here on Earth.

G       D
Keep it use it
Em         C
Build it move it
G            D         Em          C
Flames can't touch how time will prove it
G        D      Em      C
Watch us fly as loud as we can
G        D      
Let her heart beat
Em          C     D
Change what I am now.

C           G  D       Em
Wouldn't it be fine to stand
Bm         C                    G       D
behind the words we say in the best of times?
G      D              Em     
Oh and you and I know all too well
Bm                 C        G     Bm       C
about the hell and paradise right here on Earth.

About the artist behind Life 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.
