~For the rest of the song, the drop D gets in the way.  So 
 you have to alter the chords =/ but it still sounds cool.

~Also, try to pick in the pattern of the piano, I was too lazy
 to put all of it down, so I just gave the chords to hold while
 you experiment with the picking.

VERSE 1:
   D       A        D                G
   I don't get many things right the first time

      D         Bm       C           A           A/C#
in fact I am told that a lot.  Now I know all the wrong turns

       D          G               D   Bm   F#m   A
the stumbles and falls brought me here



CHORUS:
Bm            G            Bm                E                A
And where was I before the day that I first saw your lovely face?

        F#m       G
now I see it every day

    D     A            D  A   Bm F#m  G  D A   D             A
And I    know,    that I am,  I  am,  I am,    the luckiest



VERSE 2:
         D        A   D          G
What if I'd been born 50 years before you

     D            Bm                 C           A       A/C#
in a house on the street where you live?  Maybe I'd be outside

        D            G            D    Bm   F#m  A
as you pass on your bike would I know?



CHORUS:
Bm           G           Bm           E              A      F#m   G
   And in a wide sea of eyes, I'd see one pair that I'd recognize

    D     A            D  A   Bm F#m  G  D A   D             A
And I    know,    that I am,  I  am,  I am,    the luckiest


BRIDGE:
Em                          Bm            A/C#    D      G     D     A
  I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you.



VERSE 3:
      D              A            D           G
Next door there's an old man who lived to his 90's

        D           Bm          C             A
and one day passed away in his sleep.  And his wife

    A/C#          D         G               D   Bm   F#m  A
she stayed for a couple of days and passed away.



CHORUS:
Bm         G              Bm              E               A       F#m   G
I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know we belong.

   D    A           D  A   Bm F#m  G  D   A      
That I know,   that I am,  I  am,  I  am...


     ...the luckiest.
