Die Then Grow Chords
Die Then Grow - Avett Brothers


VERSE 1

G                C                           G 
Can you say your name to me, put mine after yours?
G                C                               G 
Can we build a house of glass without windows or doors?
G                 C                                G 
Will you learn to love yourself the way I know you should?
G               C                                    G 
Can we find the courage there to call our friendship good?
        Bm             G   
Call it good, call it good  

CHORUS

G           C                         G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G           C                         G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G                     C                                     G 
Don't let romance and beating hearts change what we came to do
G           C                         G    Em  C
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you  

VERSE 2

G                    C                             G 
The world is closing in on me, I think it's time I go
G                       C                                     G 
And with your sad young eyes you've taught me things I didn't know
G                          C                                  G 
And my heart broke down to powder there and I wish I'd let it show
G                     C                                G 
And I listened as you said to me you'd rather die than grow
         Bm             G   
Die than grow, die than grow

CHORUS

G           C                         G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G           C                         G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G                     C                                     G 
Don't let romance and beating hearts change what we came to do
G           C                         G    Em  C
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you  

VERSE 3

G                         C                            G 
So I watched as those who ask for love, demanding some respect
G                  C                              G 
Became the last in line to have what they come to expect
G                C                              G 
As what nobody taught them that they so rightly deserve
G                        C                                  G 
And the hums of their misfortune peaked, the hardest lesson learned
       Bm              G 
Lesson learned, lesson learned  

CHORUS

G           C                         G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G           C                         G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G                     C                                     G 
Don't let romance and beating hearts change what we came to do
G           C                         G    Em  C
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you  

BRIDGE 

  G                  C
To watch us fall is why they came
   G                    Em          C
And fall we did, to the call of the highway
G                    C                   Em    
Don't go home, don't look ahead, don't look behind
D                     C     
Everything we were is dead

VERSE 4

G                       C                                        G 
Then a well of hope and talent sprang, and I caught a glimpse of light
G                             C                                G 
And I drank from there as the colors rang out loudly from your eyes
G         C                           G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you
G                    C                                     G 
Don't let romance or beating hearts change what we came to do
G         C                           G 
Anita, my Anita, I was born to follow you (Repeat.  Lose yourself in it!) 

         Bm             G 
Die then grow, Die then grow
         Bm             G 
Die then grow, Die then grow


Like most Avett songs, this one is build around a basic chord progression, 
but infused with subtle artistry.  The chords are only the starting 
framework.  There are diminished C’s, etc.  I welcome corrections.  
I’ve been mooching here for years, and this is my first submission.

Enjoy!

About the artist behind Die Then Grow 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.
