I Would Be Sad  The Avett Brothers

Capo 2nd Fret
It's a pretty simple song as long as you listen for the rhythm.
There is on small riff between every transition from G to Em. Simply walk down
3-2-0 on the E string.
Open on the Chorus:
[G]I would be [Em]sad because [C]you left me all alone[G].
[G]I would be [Em]sad because [C]the lies that you had tol[G]d.
[G]I would be [Em]sad because I[C] got left by a [D]girl that I adore.
[G]I would be [Em]sad because t[C]he love I had before[G].
Verse 1:
[G]I meant what I said when I said I[Em] would settle down with you [C]although I know
it's not something that y[D]ou were asking me to do.
[G]And I know we are young but we won't [Em]always be, so marry me; lets no[C]t be
that predictable young [D]couple changing, moving on.
[G]But I can tell by watching you that [Em]theres no chance of pushing through.
The [C]odds are so against us; you know [D]most young love it ends like this.
Chorus:
[G]I would be [Em]sad because [C]you left me all alone[G].
[G]I would be [Em]sad because [C]the lies that you had tol[G]d.
[G]I would be [Em]sad because I[C] got left by a [D]girl that I adore.
[G]I would be [Em]sad because t[C]he love I had before[G].
Verse 2:
[G]I meant what I said when I said [Bm]I would [C]rearrange my [D]plans and
change for y[G]ou.
[G]You know me; I've always been the [Em]kind with easy confidence.
[C]Confident enough to honestl[D]y beleive that nothing out there [G]stopping me
especially not s[Em]omeone who's not loving me.
[C]Now listen here I told you I could [D]live on with out loving you.
[C]I was bluffing then, but it seems [D]that just might have been the truth.
[G]Well my dad told me, "One day son, this [Em]girl will think of what she's done
and [C]hurting you will be the first of [D]many more regrets to come."
[G]And he said, "If she doesn't call, then [Em]it's her fault and it's her loss."
I s[C]ay, "It's not that simple see, but t[D]hen again it just may be."
Chorus/Ending:
[G]I would be [Em]sad because [C]you left me all alone[G].
[G]I would be [Em]sad because [C]the lies that you had tol[G]d.
[G]I would be [Em]sad because I[C] got left by a [D]girl that I adore.
[G]I would be [Em]sad because t[C]he love I had before[G].
[G]I would be [Em]sad because t[C]he love I had before[G].
