Capo 1st Fret


       C                                              Am
By the time I was your age Id give anything to fall in love truly
                                 F
was all I could think, thats when I met your mother the girl of my dreams,
         G
the most beautiful woman that Id ever seen.
           C
She said, Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
 Am
I cant help but notice you staring at me,
  F
I know I shouldnt say this, but I really believe,
      G
I can tell by your eyes that youre in love with me.

    F        G      Am                       F           G
Now son, Im only telling you this because life can do terrible things.

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

    F        G    Am                       F           G
Now son, Im only telling you this because life can do terrible things.
       F         G          Am                   F             G
Youll learn one day, and I hope and I pray that God shows you differently.

           C
She said, Boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
    Am
It seems that Im sick and Ive only got weeks.
F
Please dont be sad now, I really believe,
             G
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.

C        Am                   F            G
Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees.

   C
So dont fall in love theres just too much to lose
   Am
if youre given the choice, Im begging you choose 
  F
to walk away, walk away,
             G
dont let it get you, I cant bare to see the same happen to you.

   F        G    Am                       F           G
Now son, Im only telling you this because life can do terrible things.
