The Lowering (A Sad Day in Greenvilletown)  The Avett Brothers



Tabbed by: Macheeoo
Tuning: Standard CAPO II
If [C]I had known, your [Em]heart was down
That [F]lonely day in [G]Greenvilletown
Then [C]I would have been [Em]more concerned
But [F]later on, I [G]truly learned
How [C]it can feel in [Em]every bone
To r[F]eally see that you're [G]all alone
But [Am]I'll, I'll [F]kiss your [C]head
When [Am]death f[F]inds your [C]bed
And you are [F]gone
And if [C]I had seen the [Em]way it would be
I'd [F]hush your cries when [G]you came to me
If [C]I could do what [Em]I did to you
The [F]same to me, and I would [G]love for you to see
That[Am] I sleep[F] with re[C]morse
And [Am]regret hangs [F]round my [C]door
And if [C]I had known the [Em]lowering tide
Was l[F]owering with the [G]way you felt inside
If [C]I had known all [Em]hope was gone
A b[F]roken heart and a b[G]roken home
That [Am]pierced my [F]lover's [C]past
And c[Am]arved a l[F]onely [C]path for
her to w[F]alk
So if [C]ever someone s[G]ays to you
"[F]Life isn't fair, get [G]used to it"
Then [C]you should say -- "Well [Em]it might be
If [F]folks like you would[G] let it be"
But [Am]I'll, I'll [F]kiss your [C]head
When [Am]death be[F]comes my b[C]ed
And I am g[F]one.
