The Avett Brothers - The Once And Future Carpenter chords version 1

Chords
Transpose
Capo IV

Yes, I know the lyrics aren't quite right. But you'll get the idea.

Intro: Opening riff that I am yet to derive. Then:

C G C G

Verse 1
C F Dm F I ain't from Texas, but I made my way from Dallas
Dm G C - G and I know the lonesome sound is following
C F Dm FI ain't a gambler, but I can recognize a hand
Dm G C - Gand when to hold, when queens are staring back at me.

C - F - G Verse 2 (Use chords from first verse). Once I was a carpenter, man my hands were calloused I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry and I left the timbers where they lay
F Fm Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
C Am Gand when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
F and when the black cloak drags upon the ground
Fm CI'll be ready to surrender, and remember
Am Gwell we're all in this together
F FmIf I live the life I'm given, I wont be scared to die
Verses 3+4. (Same as first two.) And I don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pull me and I followed till I finally lost my way And now I spend my days in search of a woman we called purpose And if I ever pass back through here town I'll stay Chorus 2 (Same as first). Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky and when the black cloak drags upon the ground I'll be ready to surrender, and remember well we're all in this together If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die (Interlude again then that cool little riff). And my life is but a coin, pulled from an empty pocket Dropped into a slot with dreams of sevens close behind And hope and fear go with it, and moon and the sun go spinning Like the numbers and fruits before my eyes Bridge
C F G CSometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind Chorus 3 (Same as first two). Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky and when the black cloak drags upon the ground I'll be ready to surrender, and remember well we're all in this together If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die
