Please Pardon Yourself
capo 2

G                           C           G
as I turned my head to your side of the bed...

G                         C       G
why are you awake? What’s on your mind

G                      C           G
to this awful news try not to hold on

G                              C                 G
the day will come the sun will rise and we'll be fine

G                    C           G
As long as I feel as strong as I feel

G                   C         G
I will carry you as long as I can

G                           C      G
As hard on yourself, please pardon yourself

G                       C               G
Do the best you can and that won't go unseen

G                              C
How do I know when its time to stop

Runnin' from the things I do, Bein' things I'm not
          C                 G
Oh I have tried, but I just changed my mind
      D             C             G
Every night befalls every morning light

G                                 C
How do I know that you will never stop

Knowing me and trusting me, loving me alot
          C                 G
Oh I have tried, but I just changed my mind

D             C             G
Every night befalls every morning light

G    C       G
Well there's only so many ways
        G         C         G
You can give your loving to me

D                         C           G
But I'd give my soul for just one of them now

D                     C            G
I'd give up the drinkin', just tell me how

(Repeat chords from last 4 lines)
And there's only so many years
I can give my love to you
And I spent the last one hidden away
Screaming my lungs out, nothing to say

(repeat first verse)

About the artist behind Please Pardon Yourself:

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.
