Please rate and leave comments. Thanks!

Standard Tuning
Capo 2nd fret

Intro: E x8

I'm no more than a friend girl
I can see that you need more
    A               B
My boots are on my feet now
   E       G#m     A
My back is by the door

The love and the attention
That you need and ask me for
     A              B
Are weakened by my absence
         E       G#m      A
And the lies that I have told

F#m                B               E
    I'm scared to think that I've abandoned you  
F#m                             B 
    I'd like to say that I'm a faithful man but
E      G#m     A        B         E
It may not be true

My heart is like a mason's 
Heavy and weathered skin
A                  B
Each scar makes it harder
    E     G#m   A
For me to hurt again

F#m                B               E
    I'm scared to think that I've abandoned you  
F#m                             B 
    I'd like to say that I'm a faithful man but
E      G#m     A        B         E
It may not be true


G#m x4

G#m C#m F#m E D#

G#m                    C#m
Gabriella, the things that I tell ya, 
                 F#m                       E         D#     
Are all meant to help ya, are they working ou---ou--out.
       G#m                 C#m
Have I gone, have I gone and failed ya,
        F#m                    E      D#     
oh, Gabriella, have I let you down---own...

G#m C#m F#m E D#

About the artist behind Pretty Girl From Chile:

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.
