The Ballad of Love and Hate  The Avett Brothers

I saw that no one had put the chord progression throughout the whole song so I
took that liberty. Credit goes to "Unregistered" for actually finding the chords. lol!
Standard tuning
Capo on 1st fret
[D]Love writes a [D]letter and [A]sends it to [D]hate.
[G]My vacations [G]ending. I'm [A]coming home [D]late.
[G]The weather was [A]fine and the [D]ocean was [G]great
and I [D]can't wait to [A]see you [G]again.[G]
[D]Hate reads the[D] letter and[A] throws it a[D]way.
[G]"No one here [G]cares if you[A] go or you s[D]tay.
[G]I barely even no[A]ticed that yo[D]u were awa[G]y.
I'll s[D]ee you or I wo[A]n't, wha[G]tever."[G]
[D]Love sings a s[D]ong as she [A]sails throug[D]h the sky.
[G]The water loo[G]ks bluer thr[A]ough her pre[D]tty eyes.
[G]And everyone kno[A]ws it wheneve[D]r she flie[G]s,
and al[D]so when she co[A]mes down[G].[G]
[D]Hate keeps his[D] head up an[A]d walks thro[D]ugh the street.
[G]Every strange[G]r and drifte[A]r he greets.[D]
[G]And shakes hands[A] with every l[D]oner he me[G]ets
with a[D] serious look [A]on his f[G]ace.[G]
[D]Love arrives s[D]afely with [A]suitcase in [D]tow.
[G]Carrying with[G] her the goo[A]d things we [D]know.
[G]A reason to live[A] and a reason[D] to grow.[G]
To tru[D]st. To hope. T[A]o care.[G] [G]
[D]Hate sits alon[D]e on the ho[A]od of his ca[D]r.
[G]Without much [G]regard to th[A]e moon or th[D]e stars.
[G]Lazily killing t[A]he last of a [D]jar[G]
of the[D] strongest stu[A]ff you c[G]an drink.[G]
[D]Love takes a t[D]axi, a youn[A]g man drives[D].
[G]As soon as he[G] sees her, h[A]ope fills hi[D]s eyes.
[G]But tears follow[A] after, at th[D]e end of t[G]he ride,
cause [D]he might never[A] see her[G] again.[G]
[D]Hate gets home[D] lucky to s[A]till be aliv[D]e.
[G]He screams o'[G]er the sidew[A]alk and into[D] the drive.
[G]The clock in the[A] kitchen says[D] 2:55,[G]
And th[D]e clock in the[A] kitchen[G] is slow.[G]
[D]Love has been [D]waiting, pa[A]tient and ki[D]nd.
[G]Just wanting [G]a phone call[A] or some kin[D]d of sign,
[G]That the one tha[A]t she cares f[D]or, who's [G]out of his mind,
Will m[D]ake it back sa[A]fe to he[G]r arms.[G]
[D]Hate stumbles [D]forward and[A] leans in th[D]e door.
[G]Weary head hu[G]ng, eyes to [A]the floor.[D]
[G]He says "Love, I[A]'m sorry", an[D]d she says[G], "What for?"
I'm yo[D]ur and that's [A]it, What[G]ever.[G]
I [G]should not have [A]been [D]gone for so [G]long.
I'm [D]yours and that's i[A]t, f[G]orever."[G]
You're [D]mine and that's [A]it, [G]forever.[G]
