New Song Chart: I and Love and You

Normally I wait until I have a batch of songs to upload before posting, but this song is both lovely and entirely unusual, so I couldn't wait. The song is I and Love and You by the Avett Brothers.

I have a challenge for you!  Before you look at the PDF on the Songs page, follow the link above to the YouTube video. Listen to the first two lines of the song and see if you can figure out the time signature. Is it 4/4, 3/4, or 2/4, or something entirely different?

Go ahead....I'll wait.....

.....no, seriously....

The song is so unusual that I had to invent a new method of representing the timing on the chart. The time signature changes almost every measure! 3/4, then 4/4, then 3/4, then 2/4, then 4/4. Who does that?!?

Check it out. Whatever they did, it worked. This is a lovely, lovely song.
