Autumn And Me
Capo 1 Intro: C G F G VERSE C G We were 17 and on our own F G When we hit the gas for the great unknown C G I was named for a boy, she was named for the fall F G And nothing much else really mattered at all PRECHORUS Am I knew what happened on her kitchen floor F And she knew what it meant when I wrote on the door Am Secrets spilled into that dark F And everyone was a piece of my heart CHORUS: C It's a lullaby G It's a beautiful life F G And it sings me to sleep most every night C So I hold it close G And I hide it away F G That's how I keep it from going astray Am F Love doesn't need a rhyme or a reason to be C G F G x2 This is the story of Autumn and me. *Use the same progressions throughout the song.... Verse: We grew up fast in a few short years And we littered the path with the tracks of our tears But we carved our names in the proverbial wall And nothing much else really matters at all Prechorus: We earned every line in our 25 years We cried over boys and we laughed over beers I wouldn't trade the girl for a song She lets me know right where I belong Chorus Prechorus: Rooftop dancing in the summer heat New car crash on a one way street Strangers moving up to the fourth floor Strange, now nobody knows me more Chorus (palm mute the chords): It's a lullaby It's a beautiful life And it sings me to sleep most every night So I hold it close And I hide it away That's how I keep it from going astray Repeat full chorus C G F G C G I was named for a boy, she was named for the fall F G C And nothing much else really mattered at all And you're done! Pretty simple song but fun to sing. No guarantee on the accuracy but it sounds close to me. The rhythm is weird so good luck to you if you want to play it exactly the way they do b/c I haven't figured it out yet. Have fun!
