The Avett Brothers Sheet music
[Intro]
C
 
[Verse 1]
C                           F
I woke up very early like I tend to do most days
         C                                      G      G7
Gathered up my clothes, my watch, and pocket knife
         C                            F
It would be almost an hour before the sun would show it's face
      C                       G              C
And I tried to be quiet so as not to wake my wife
C                           F
Turning on my phone was the first mistake I made
   C                                        G
My heart sunk when I read the first headline
          C                                   F
There had been another shooting and this time not so far away
C                                    G              C
And a child who lost his life looked awful lot like mine
 
 
[Verse 2]
C                       F
I sat there in the dark for I don't know how long
C                                   G     G7
Without the first idea of what to do
C                                        F
I walked into the kitchen and turned the coffee maker on
C                                    G                  C
And stood there feeling hopeless and staring at the moon
C                                    F
And when the house got lively, I was working double time
C                                    G    G7
Scrambling eggs and trying not to cry
C                          F
Jennifer was getting Isaac dressed and packed for school
      C                              G             C
I was wondering when God left and why he didn't say goodbye
 
 
[Chorus]
G                     G7          C
I should've spent the day with my family
          Am                               F#/D
Instead I tried and failed to work all day long
        G          G#m6                     Am
Lord, I should have spent the day with my family
             F          G             F       G      C
On days like this, they alone make me want to carry on
 
 
[Verse 3]
C                         F
Throughout the day I kept hearing all the details
C                                           G     G7
Though I didn't check in much but watch the news
C                             F
Some tragedies you know, they have no explanation
C                         G                       C
And the word "everything" don't cover what you lose
C                                        F
So I spend the whole day pacing back and forth all by my lonesome
C                                          G      G7
Questioning the point in trying to write a song
C                               F
And it sure is hard to focus on anything on all
C                                      G               C
And you can't get something right when everything feels wrong
 
 
[Chorus]
G                     G7          C
I should've spent the day with my family
          Am                               F#/D
Instead I tried and failed to work all day long
        G          G#m6                     Am
Lord, I should have spent the day with my family
             F          G             F       G      C
On days like this, they alone make me want to carry on
 
 
[Verse 4]
C                             F
By sundown I was worn out, no closer to understanding
    C                                G    G7
The evil things that happen every day
C                               F
My wife and I shared a beer and talked about the future
C                            G                       C
Agreeing on the fact that we would have to find a way
C                                      F
Though sometimes I don't know how this world continues turning
         C                        G
What has happened will never be undone
    C                                   F
But tomorrow I think I'll just try to keep the day wide open
       C                                  G                  C
And as much as they will have me, be with people that I love
