She said boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?

It just uses those two progressions.
Enjoy!

Lyrics:

By the time I was your age Iíd give anything to fall in
love truly
was all I could think,
thatís when I met your mother
the girl of my dreams,
the most beautiful woman that Iíd ever seen.
She said boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
ďI canít help but notice you staring at me,
I know I shouldnít say this, but I really believe,
I can tell by your eyes that youíre in love with me.Ē
Now son, Iím only telling you this because life can do
terrible things.

Now most of the time weíd have too much to drink
and weíd laugh at the stars and share everything.
Too young to notice and too dumb to care,
love was a story that couldnít compare.
I said girl can I tell you a wonderful thing?
ďI made you a present with paper and string,
open with care now, Iím asking you please,
you know that I love you,
will you marry me?Ē


Now son Iím only telling you this because life can do
terrible things
youíll learn one day, and I hope and I pray that God
shows you differently.

She said boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
ďIt seems that Iím sick and Iíve only got weeks.
Please donít be sad now, I really believe,
you were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.Ē

Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees.

So donít fall in love thereís just too much to lose
if youíre given the choice, Iím begging you choose to
walk away, walk away,
donít let it get you, I canít bare to see the same
happen to you.

Now son, Iím only telling you this, because life can do
terrible things.
