The Avett Brothers- Murder in the City

Standard Tuning, Capo III

C  Em  Am  G  F  G  C (X2)

C        Em             Am   G
If I get murdered in the city
F          G           C
Don't go revenging in my name
C          Em               Am     G
One person dead from such is plenty
F         G              C
No need to go get locked away.
Am     G          C
When I leave your arms
Am             G        C
the things that I think of
Am         G   F           C 
No need to get over-alarmed
Am  G          C
I'm coming home 

C  Em  Am  G  F  G  C (X2)

C       Em               Am    G
I wonder which brother is better
F                G             C
which one our parents loved the most
C          Em            Am      G
I sure did get in lots of trouble
F             G             C
They seemed to let the other go
Am          G                C
A tear fell from my father's eye
Am         G                 C
I wondered what my dad would say
Am         G                F            C
He'd say I love you and I'm proud of you both
      Am   G             C
In so many different ways

C  Em  Am  G  F  G  C (x2)

C        Em              Am   G
If I get murdered in the city
F           G            C
Go read the letter in my desk
C            Em          Am        G
Don't bother with all my belongings
F       G                C
But pay attention to the list
Am        G                     C
Make sure my sister knows I loved her
Am        G                    C
Make sure my mother knows the same

Am          G             F             C
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
         Am               G             C
like the love that let us share our name

Am          G             F             C
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
         Am               G             C
like the love that let us share our name

About the artist behind Murder In The City 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.
