​Pretty Girl from Raleigh

This song is by The Avett Brothers and appears on the album A Carolina Jubilee (2003).

Who sold you this anger
I suspect it was your friends
Or was it a stranger
Convincing you that this was the end

And I would like to thank you
For coming round and doing this
My nights have been pretty painful

You always said that I was lying
That I was just a selfish man
But I all ready gave it all away
So you can let go of my selfish hand

So bye bye bye bye bye
I ain't got time to watch you cry
'Cause I've been drinking seven hours now
Sympathy is a waste of my high

And I would like to say it hurts me (but it don't)
That I don't know just what to do (but I do)
But it don't hurt when you're just killing time
I was killing time and I think that you knew
