Verse:

     D                     Gm
Dear Avery, I think of you only

         D                             Gm
Were you waving? Were you dead on the vine?

     D                     Gm
Oh Avery, I think of you lonely

                D                             Gm
But I could just grab you by the nape of your neck


Chorus:

        A               G                       D
There are times life will rattle your bones and will bend your limbs

             A                G                D
You're still far and away the boy you've ever been

       A             G             D
So you bend back and shake at the frame Of the frame you made

    Em                  G
But don't you shake alone

       Em        A
Please Avery-y-y-y, come home


Dsus2   Gm
Dsus2   Gm


Verse (D Gm):
Headstrong, you and your long arms
Listing lazily on the cusp of your tease
But you were my Avery and when you needed saving
I could just grab you by the nape of your neck


Chorus:
There are times life will rattle your bones
And will bend your limbs
You're still far and away the boy you've ever been
So you bend back and shake at the frame
Of the frame you made
But don't you shake alone
Please Avery, come home

Bm         A      G
(Don't you shake alone!)

       Em        A
Please Avery-y-y-y, come home

D Gm (repeat to end)



During the intro and parts between verses, the Dsus2 can be substituted with a D, and 
the Gm can be switched between the two versions in the chord section. Enjoy this beautiful song!
