Dear [Dsus2]Avery, I think of you only[Gm]
Were you [Dsus2]waving? Were you dead on the vine?[Gm]
Oh Av[Dsus2]ery, I think of you lonely[Gm]
But I could just[Dsus2] grab you by the nape of your neck[Gm]
There ar[A]e times life wil[G]l rattle your bones and [D]will bend your limbs
You're still [A]far and away the [G]boy you've ever b[D]een
So you [A]bend back and [G]shake at the f[D]rame Of the frame you made
But [Bm]don't you shake a[A]lone[G]
Please [Em]Avery-y-y-[A]y, come home
[Dsus2] [Gm]

Verse (Dsus2 Gm):
Headstrong, you and your long arms
Listing lazily on the cusp of your teens
But you were my Avery and when you needed saving
I could just grab you by the nape of your neck
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](Don't you [A]shake a[G]lone!)
Please [Em]Avery-y-y-[A]y, come home
Dsus2 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!
