Jordan Am A Hard Road To Travel
**Capo 7**
This is how Seth plays it on Letterman

G                    C         G
I'm gonna sing you a brand new song
It's all the truth for certain
G                     C      G  
We can't live high if we get by
                  D          G
And get on the other side of Jordan
      G                          C            G     
   Oh pull off your overcoat and roll up your sleeves
   Jordan is a hard road to travel
   G                          C            G 
   Pull off your overcoat and roll up your sleeves
                            D        G
   Jordan is a hard road to travel I believe.

The public schools and the highways
are causing quite an alarm
Get a country boy educated just a little
and he won't work on the farm

Now I don't know but I believe I'm right
the auto's ruined the country
Let's get back to the horse and buggy
and try to save some money.

I know a man an evangelist
his tabernacle's always full
The people come from miles around
just to hear him shoot the bull

You can talk about your evangelists
you can talk about Mr. Ford too
But Henry's shaking more hell out of the folks
than all the evangelists do.

About the artist behind Jordan Am A Hard Road To Travel:

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.
