When I Drink

Avett Brothers

 CAmFGAmC
When I drink,   I say things I don't wanna say       
 FGCC/BAm
 I do things i don't  wanna do           
 FG
 I talk mean to you.
 CAmFGAmC
 But if I think,   I just might get something out of this       
 FGCC/BAm
 My parents taught me to learn  when i miss       
 FG
 Just do your best.
 AmC
 Just do your best.

Chorus:

 EmF
It's the only way to keep that last bit of sanity
 AmG
 Maybe I don't have to be good but I can try to be
 FG
at least a little better than I've been so far.

Verse 2:

 CAmFGAmC
  But when I drink,   I hear things that aren't really there      
 FGCC/BAm
 I feel things when i shouldn't  really care        
 FG
Have fist fights with the air.
 CAmFGAmC
  But if I think,   about someone besides myself     
 FGCC/BAm
 I lived through the silver and the bell       
 FG
 With something to tell
 AmC
  Just do your best

Chorus:

 EmF
It's the only way to keep that last bit of sanity
 AmG
 Maybe I don't have to be good but I can try to be
 FG
at least a little better than I've been so far.

Verse 3:

 CAmFGAmC
  But when I drink,   I spend the next morning in a haze    
 FGCC/BAm
 But we only get so many days       
 FG
 Now I have one less
 AmC
 Just do your best.

Chorus:

 EmF
It's the only way to keep that last bit of sanity
 AmG
 Maybe I don't have to be good but I can try to be
 FG
at least a little better than I've been so far.
 FGC
Oh, at least a little better than I've been so far.
