^ G By the time I was your age I've give anything D To fall in love truly was all I could think Em That's when I met your Mother, the girl of my dreams C The most beautiful woman that I'd ever seen G She said, "Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing? D I can't help but notice you staring at me Em I know I shouldn't say this C But I really believe that I can tell by your eyes that you're in love with me" Em Now son, I'm only telling you this because C Life, can do terrible things G Now most of the time we'd have too much to drink D We'd laugh at the stars and we'd share everything Em Too young to notice and too dumb to care C Love was a story that couldn't compare G I said, "Girl can I tell you a wonderful thing D I made you a present with paper and string Em Open with care, now I'm asking you please C You know that I love you, will you marry me?" Em Now son, I'm only telling you this because C Life, can do terrible things Em You'll learn one day, I hope and I pray C That God, shows you differently G (1 hit, fade out) She said, "Boy can I tell you a terrible thing? D (same) It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks Em (same) Please don't be sad now, I really believe C You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me." G D C Em Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees G So don't fall in love, there's just too much to lose D If given the choice then I beg you to choose Em To walk away, walk away Don't let her get you C I can't bare to see the same thing happen to you Em Now son, I'm only telling you this because C Life, can do terrible things.
