Letter to a Pretty Girl  The Avett Brothers

[G]Hey, hey, [C]Carla
It's a [D]long way to [G]Missouri
[B7] [Em]  
[Am]East of R[D]oanoke
[G]We had a [C]moment
[D]That felt like [G]summer
[B7]Now in s[Em]lumber
[Am]I can see your [D]smile
[G]We drive for m[C]iles
[D]Through corporate [G]Ohio
[B7]Rest stops in West [Em]Virginia
[Am]Traffic in Washington[D] DC
But [G]of all the scenes that I see
Played[F] out this window to the left of me
[Em]The thought of you it[Cm] shines
[G]The [C]band[C/B] plays[Am] on, [D]I keep the[G] time
[G]We play in the n[C]ight time
[D]Awake before [G]sunrise
[B7]Wipe the sleep from [Em]my eyes
[Am]Coffee my best [D]friend
[G]You dance between [C]classes
[D]Complete difficult[G] assignments
[B7]Wonder where the [Em]time went
[Am]Out drinking with your [D]friends
[G]We see a lot of[C] beauty
[D]Some becomes [G]ordinary
[B7]Mountains, and canyons, and[Em] prairies
[Am]Sunset over Chesapeake[D] Bay
[G]Dear, dear [C]Carla
[D]It's only that I'm [G]askin'
[B7]Make time more easy for the[Em] passin'
[Am]If I knew I would see you [D]again
Of [G]all the beauty that I see
Out[F] this window to the left of me
[Em]The thought of you it sh[Cm]ines
[G]The [C]band [C/B]plays [Am]on, [D]I keep the [G]time
The [C]time [C/B]is m[Am]arked, [D]between the [G]lines
Hmm[C]m.[C/B].. [Am] [D]I keep the [G]time
END! (Thanks for giving Bob some love!)
