Pretty Girl From Michigan
The Avett Brothers
C Em Can you not see what you've done? F G You gave your heart away like that. C Em I didn't want to fall in love, F G with anyone but you, dear. C Em I can still hear the song, F G the melody behind the kiss, C Em you gave me, you were wrong, F G I was right so I walked away, C Em and left you there, alone, F G I got so tired of talking on the C Em telephone, F G how many times would we say the words, "Good bye?" RIFF* C Em I made mistakes, and one, F G was telling you that I'd be there when C Em telling time (?) had come, F G I should have said I didn't care. C Em All the time I would have saved, F G If I had been less willing C Em to accommodate, F G you'd been a little less likely to cry. RIFF* Am G You go back to the high life, Am G and I'll go back to the low. F I should have known, G But now I know. C Em There'll be no word from you, F G describing how it felt to go through C Em what I put you through F G It all makes perfect sense C Em the way you cut the rope F G that kept you dangling from such C Em pitiful amounts of hope, F G I would have cut it, too. RIFF I'm not much of a tab reader, I go by chords and embellish off of them. Hold the C chord down, then pluck the A string (third fret) twice, followed by the D (second fret) once, then the open G string, then G string, second fret (with your middle finger). Then do the same thing in reverse, adding an optional pull-of on the D string. End on C.
