About this tab version
The intro sounds more like the actual song. All other versions have simplified intros that don''t match well or miss notes. I also give notes on how to play smart and timing of chords is taken into consideration. Was this info helpful? Yes No

                 Murder in the city - The Avett Brothers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Zayfra
E-mail: zayfra@yahoo.ca

Tuning: Standard - Capo on THIRD fret, all chords relative to capo

Since there are two guitars playing there are lots of sounds that cannot be reproduced by one guitar; yet
I wanted something that sounded right and not simplified. Enjoy!



Intro:

**Hint: This picking pattern can be played easily by holding a C chord shape and slightly changing finger
        positions as necessary.

                  C                               F                C

                  C                               F                C

                                                      (pick this last part softly)

Verse:

C         Em              Am       G   
If I get murdered in the city  
F         G               C
Don't go revenging in my name
C         Em                  Am         G
One person dead from such is plenty
F           G               C
No need to go get locked away


Chorus: (slowly strum the Am and G chords)

Am      G                C
When I leave your arms
Am              G            C
The things that I think of
Am           G              F
No need to  get over  alarmed
Am      G       
I'm comin home

[Intro]

I wonder which brother is better
Which one our parents love the most
I sure did get in lots of trouble
They seemed to let the other go

A tear fell from my father's eyes
I wondered what my dad would say
He said I love you
And I'm proud of you both, in so many different ways

[Intro]

If I get murdered in the city
Go read the letter in my desk
Don't bother with all my belongings
But pay attention to the list

Make sure my sister knows I loved her
Make sure my mother knows the same
Always remember, there is nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name
Always remember, there is nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name

[Intro] (i.e Outro)

Thanks!
