I Thought I Knew Acoustic
Scotts take on Alela Dianes I Thought I Knew

[Verse 1]

It was the last day of the year
It was coming down in sheets
I was sitting on the street
Soaked through from the sleet
I'd had too much to drink


Am           D  Am           D
I called you up and drew you in
Am          D    Am        G
I thought I knew but I was wrong

[Verse 2]

G                   G/F#
You came to my town I showed you around
F                      C              G
But everywhere we went reminded me of her
I'd been lying to myself again


Am           D  Am           D
I called you up and drew you in
Am          D              G
I thought I knew but I was wrong

[Verse 3]

D                 Am  D                         Am
And I took to the sky with that knowing sinking feeling
D             Am            G
I'd only just arrived but I foresaw the end
D               Am     D              Am    
So I lay on the couch, helpless to my blunder
D                         Am
You turned off the lights upon me
And went upstairs alone
You knew that I was gone
You knew I was gone

About the artist behind I Thought I Knew Acoustic:

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.
