I don't think these are the exact picking patterns, but they gets to job done I suppose. Gavin also occasionally adds an 0h2 hammer-on on the A string for G chords and on the D string for C chords. Verse 1:
G C GWell, I woke up this morning with dead leaves inside my bed.
G DYou said "You're better off just where you are than to be stuck in my head.
G C GYou've got to leave it all behind you and give yourself up to chance."
Em D GSo I gave myself to chance.
Verse 2:
G C GAnd I packed a little suitcase, brushed my teeth and washed my hands.
G DI've been bluffing here for years and now I think it's time I showed my hand.
G C Cmaj7I'm going to move to New York City and set the sky on fire.
Em D GOh, don't the night look so alive with it's desire
Chorus 1:
C GTo cross the River Jordan?
D GBut it just don't feel the same.
C GWhen I came home Friday morning
Em D C GWith no one but myself to blame.
Em D G Verse 3:
G C GSee I have trouble with numbers and paying the ones I owe.
G DAnd I put what I had left in the pocket of my coat.
G C GI went out to find a liquor store and make a home there in the snow,
Em D GGive myself a little shelter from the cold.
Chorus 2:
C GSee, I was bound here by my choices.
D GOh my god how I felt so ashamed.
C GStill I hoped that you might join us
Em D GAnd take this little light of ours out on parade
Melodica Section (played twice): Em D G C Em D G G Verse 4:
G C GI used to look at others and try to find a way to grow.
G DAnd now I just look around and I'm going to reap the seeds I've sown.
G C Cmaj7And I try to picture myself in Oslo but lord help me if I go.
Em D GI've been running around and I believe it's starting to show.
Chorus 3:
C GAnd so I'll cross the River Jordan
D GAnd if it just don't feel the same.
C GAnd I'm not home Friday morning
Em D C GI'll have no one but myself to blame.
