Intro: [Em - G - C] x3, then D


Verse 1 chords:
G              C                G             C
I am sick with wanting and it's evil and it's daunting
            G           C             G       C
How I let everything I cherish lay to waste
G            C                     G          C
I am lost in greed, this time it's definitely me
       G                    C               G      C
I point fingers but there's no one there to blame


Pre-chorus 1 chords:
C          B7         Em         D              C         
A need for something, now let me break it down again
C          B7            Em       D   C
A need for something but not more medicine


Verse 2:
G              C                G             C
I am sick of wanting and it's evil how it's got me
           G           C             G       C
And every day is worse than the one before
G            C                     G          C
The more I have the more I think I'm almost where I need to be
      G                    C               G      C
If only I could get a little more


Pre-chorus 2:
C          B7         Em         D              C        
A need for something, now let me break it down again
C          B7            Em       D   C
A need for something but not more medicine


Chorus 1 chords:
          G                    Em
Something has me, oh something has me
       C            D             G
Acting like someone I don't wanna be
          G                    Em
Something has me, oh something has me
       C            D            Em
Acting like someone I know isn't me
         C                 D            G
Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed


Interlude: [Em - G - C] x3, then D


Verse 3:
G              C                G             C
Temporary is my time, ain't nothing on this world that's mine
           G           C             G       C
Except the will I found to carry on
G            C                     G          C
Free is not your right to chose
     G                    C               G      C
It's answering what's asked of you
     G                    C               G      C
To give the love you find until it's gone


Pre-chorus 3:
C          B7         Em         D              C       
A need for something, now let me break it down again
C          B7            Em       D   C
A need for something but not more medicine


Chorus 2:
         G                    Em
Something has me, oh something has me
      C            D             G
Acting like someone I don't wanna be
         G                    Em
Something has me, oh something has me
      C            D            Em
Acting like someone I know isn't me
        C                 D            G
Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed
        C                 D            G
Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed
        C                 D            G
Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed

About the artist behind Ill With Want:

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.
