The Avett Brothers
Capo II

Intro:
G G/F# Em7 Dsus C Cmaj7 Cadd9 C X2

Verse 1:
G                   G/F#
Disappear from your hometown
Em7             Dsus            C    Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Go and find the people that you know
G                  G/F#
Show them all your good parts
Em7             Dsus              C    Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Leave town when bad ones start to show
G            G/F#
Go and wed a woman
Em7           Dsus              C   Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
A pretty girl that you've never met
G                       G/F# 
Make sure she knows you love her well
Em7                Dsus  C       Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
But don't make any other promises


Chorus 1:
    G                     Am
The weight of lies will bring you down
    C             D
And follow you to every town
      G               Am                   D         Dsus D             
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
   G                          Am
So when you run make sure you run
   C                  D
To something and not away from
      G                  Am            D                  
Cause lies don't need an aero-plane to chase you anywhere


              G       G/F#        Em7           Dsus     C Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Mmm mm mmmum Mmmmmm ummmmmm mmmmm ooummmmm


Verse2:
G                   G/F#
I once heard the worse thing
Em7             Dsus            C    Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
A man could do is draw a hungry crowd
G                  G/F#
Tell everyone his name, pride, and 
Em7             Dsus             C    Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Confidence but leaving out his doubt
G                  G/F#
I'm not sure I bought those words
Em7                Dsus            C    Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
When I was young I knew most everything
G                  G/F#
These words have never meant as 
Em7            Dsus               C    Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Much to anyone as they now mean to me


Chorus2:
      G                  Am
The weight of lies will bring you down
    C             D
And follow you to every town
      G               Am                       D      Dsus D   
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
   G                          Am
So when you run make sure you run
   C                   D
To something and not away from
      G                  Am            D           
Cause lies don't need an aero-plane to chase you down

              G       G/F#        Em7           Dsus     C Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Mmm mm mmmum Mmmmmm ummmmmm mmmmm ooummmmm

 G                        Am
The weight of lies will bring you down

      G               Am                       D      Dsus D   
Cause nothing happens here that doesn't happen there
   G                  Am
So when you run make sure you run

To something and not away from

Cause lies don't need an aero-plane to chase you down
