Salvation Song
Intro:

G C G C D7 G C D7 G
       

        G
If you take my heart
      C                    
Don't leave the smallest part
        D7                                G
I've no need to live if you're to come up gone
         G 
An as my life turns to a song
          C     
And if and when I treat you wrong
     D7                     G
No I never want to hurt our family


G C D7 G

           G
And I would give up everything
           C
No this is not just about me
            D7                           G
And I don't know a plainer way to say it Babe
             G 
And they may pay us off in fame
               C
Though that is not why we came
      D7                                     G
And I know well and good that won't heal our hearts

            C
We came for salvation
             G
We came for family
            D7                      C              G
We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away
           C
We came to break the bad
           G
We came to cheer the sad
           D7                C              G
We came to leave behind the world a better way

           G 
Now if I'm walkin' through the rain
      C
And I hear you call my name
       D7                         G
I will break into a run without a pause
             G
And if your love laughs at your dreams
                 C
Well it's not as bad as it seems
       D7                         G
Either way one of them has got to go
           G
And if you take of my soul
        C
You can still leave it whole
          D7                         G
With the pieces of you own you leave behind

            C
We came for salvation
            G
We came for family
            D7                      C              G
We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away
           C
We came to break the bad
           G
We came to cheer the sad
           D7                C              G
We came to leave behind the world a better way

            G
And I would give up everything
               C
And if you were to come up clean
            D7                            G
And see you shine so bright in a world of woe
             G
And they may pay us off in fame
            C
But that is not why we came
          D7                             G
And if it compromises truth then we will go

            C
We came for salvation
            G
We came for family
            D7                      C             G
We came for all that's good that's how we'll walk away
           C
We came to break the bad
           G
We came to cheer the sad
           D7                C              G
We came to leave behind the world a better way

About the artist behind Salvation Song:

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.
