Left on Laura, Left on Lisa  The Avett Brothers

There needs to be more Avett Brothers tabs on here. This is my first of several
to come. May not be 100% but it is a pretty close interpretation. Great song!!
[G]Nobody knows it but [C]I am so sad
[G]Nobody knows it but [Bm]I am so sad
C D G (walk down to Em)
And that is the saddest of all my girl
C D G C...
That is the saddest of all
We climbed the ladder to the top of my house
Never letting go of your hand
The sky trades the moon for the sun my girl
The sky trades the moon for the sun
And I gave to you my ugly brown coat
You made it pretty when you put it on
Warmth in the early morning chill my girl
Warmth in the early April
Then you said youíd trade the love of a man
Tears fell soft from your face to my hands
Said youíd trade your heart for mine my girl
I traded my heart for those days
And you made it clear it was strictly a deal
Of springtime love and thatís how I should feel
So I set the clock back an hour my girl
I set the time a just right
You see somewhere back there when I was boy
Furious I had become by the point
That men are just liars and thieves of sorts
Men are just liars and thieves
But I still believe and I stand by my words
I donít know what you have seen or youíve heard
But somebodyís lying to you my girl
Somebodyís lying to you
You really made me believe I could stay
Part with you actions in part what you said
But that was just foolish pride my girl
And those are only feelings inside
So Iím going back to the place where we met
Iím going to find the beer bottle we left
Wedged in the limbs of the tree that we sat in
Wedged in the magnolia tree
Well we hid for days like a proud pair of thieves
Too sure we were right too stubborn too leave
Wasted with the moment we lifted my girl
Stolen forever with you
