Ten Thousand Words  The Avett Brothers

This being my first attempt at tabbing the untabbed, it may not be very good. Based on
chord progressions I've seen and a video of the Avetts playing this live, I think it's
dead on.
The chords to this song are as follows:
(Capo 2)
D, C, G x2
D Ten thousand words swarm C round my head, Ten G million more in books written be
D neath my bed C G
D I wrote or read them C all when searching G in the storm still can't find out how to D
my hands C G
D And I know ya need me C in the next room over G but I am stuck in here all D paralyzed C G
D For months I got my C self in ruts, too much G time spent in mirrors framed in
yel D low walls C G
D Ain't it like most people, C I'm no diff G 'rent, we love to talk on things we don't D
about C G x2
And everyone around me shakes their head in disbelief and says I'm too caught up.
They say young is good and old is fine and truth is cool, but all that matters is you
your good times.
But those good times come with prices and I can't believe it when I hear the jokes they make
At anyone's expense except their own, would they laugh if they knew who paid?
D Ain't it like most people, C I'm no diff G 'rent, we love to talk on things we don't D
about C G x2
C, G, x4
And after we are through, ten years in making it to be the most of glorious debuts
I'll come back home without my things cause the clothes I wore out there I will
not wear round you.
And they'll be quick to point out our shortcomings, and how the experts all have had their doubts.
D Ain't it like most people, C I'm no diff G 'rent, we love to talk on things we don't D
about CG x4 D
As for the rhythm in this piece, I'm pretty sure it goes like this:
(Relative to capo 2)
[D] [C] [G]  

At any rate, this pretty much repeats throughout the whole song and there is some
in addition, however I'm not quite sure where that occurs. He might be using a pentatonic
at the seventh fret from the looks of the video. At any rate, I hope this helps.
