For Today
Jessica Lea Mayfield
(from White Lies, and With Blasphemy So Heartfelt)
Capo 4th Fret (actual key=B)

Intro:
G  C  G  C

Verse 1:
G                        C       
I was walking, with your left hand in my back pocket,
G                                   C 
and I stared at the sky, while you kissed me.
G                          C
and you were running away, away from everything.
G                       C 
and I stayed behind, so you'd miss me.
D               Dsus4               C  
And while these words will sound so sweet.

Chorus:
  G                          C  
I could care less about you, care less about you,
G                    C 
and I love the sound of you walking away.
           G                   C
and I can, see clearer, and I'm getting closer
   G                        C
to finding out just who I am without you in the way.            
   D      Dsus4  D   C             G
So hold me...... but only..... for today.

Break:
C G C

Verse 2:
G                          C       
Despite my best ambition, I get into the worse situations
G                       C                 
but here I am, a crystal clean,
    G                        C 
and on the nights so lonely, the words I say to you are phony, 
G                               C
because there's nothing left to say.
D                Dsus4       C  
and though you say you can't live without me
D                Dsus4      C  
and every single night you think about me.

Chorus:
  G                          C  
I could care less about you, care less about you,
G                   C 
and I love the sound of you walking away.
           G                   C
and I can, see clearer, and I'm getting closer
   G                        C
to finding out just who I am without you in the way.            
   D      Dsus4  D   C             G
So hold me...... but only..... for today.

Outro:
C  G  C  G


Notes:

G: 320033
C: x32010 or Cadd9: 0x32033
D: xx0232
Dsus4: xx0233  (you can also substitute a slide to G/D: xx0787)

All chords are played for one four beat measure each, the
D/Dsus4/D section is one four beat measure.  Listen to the
song to figure out the exact relationship between the
chord changes and lyrics.

The D section also sounds good Neil Young style: 
D:xx0232,Dsus4:xx0233,D:xx0232,Dsus2:xx0230,Dadd9:xx0030

If your trying to play along with the Avett Brothers' YouTube
video it put the Capo on the first fret (actual key=Ab)
