Pretty Girl from Cedar Lane  The Avett Brothers

The other version is most certainly not right, so here is a closer one
Inrto x 2: G B7 C D7 (end on a final G strum before the pause for verse)
[G]I had a [B7]moment when I [C]thought I might be [D7]wrong,
But [G]Ashley [B7]how could it [C]be?[D7]
[G]I waited on the [B7]rooftop [C]all night [D7]long,
But [G]you weren't [B7]coming for [C]me.[D7]
[B7]And now I'm sitting here like a [C]mixed up little kid
[B7]You said you wanted me but [C]you never did
[G]There was a[B7] moment I [C]thought our love was [D7]strong,
But [G]now that [C]moment is [G]gone.
[G]I could stand right [B7]underneath the [C]window of your [D7]room,
[G]Throwing rocks [B7]I've done it [C]before[D7]
[G]And I would love to [B7]find a reason to [C]dazzle you with [D7]lies,
But [G]I don't have the [B7]energy no [C]more.[D7]
[B7]And you never promised anything that [C]you didn't give,
[B7]I assumed that you'd say yes but [C]you never did.
[G]There was a [B7]moment my [C]love for you was [D7]strong,
[G] [C] [G] [G] [C] 
but n[G]ow that moment is gone. Now that moment is gone.
G, C (strum each chord a few times fast and hard before the lines with just
I saw you behind the camera whispering
[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] 
to [C]your friends and watching me
[C]I fell in love with you there was proved the
fool that I can [C]often [G]be[C] [G] [C] [C]
C G C G C (This hard strumming
C, G pattern continues for a while,
you will have to listen to get this down cause.
Below is the little horn thingy that's playing over the middle C,G stuff

[G]I had a [B7]moment when I [C]thought I might be [D]right,
But [G]Ashley [B7]how could it [C]be?[D]
[G]I drank your [B7]sherry bourbon thinking [C]you might come a[D]round,
There [G]ain't no one on this [B7]rooftop but [C]me.[D]
[B7]And now I'm sitting here like a [C]mixed up little kid,
[B7]You said you wanted me but [C]you never did.
[G]There was a [B7]moment my [C]love for you was [D]strong,
But [G]Ashley that [C]moment is [G]gone
[G]Ashley that [C]moment is [G]gone.[F#/G]
[Em]Now that [C]moment is [G]gone.
That should be pretty damn close. I may have misplaced a chord name here
or there but follow the pattern of the rest if I messed up. It is a pretty
simple, and awesome, song. Enjoy.
