Capo 1st Fret C Am By the time I was your age I’d give anything to fall in love truly F was all I could think, that’s when I met your mother the girl of my dreams, G the most beautiful woman that I’d ever seen. C She said, “Boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?” Am “I can’t help but notice you staring at me, F I know I shouldn’t say this, but I really believe, G I can tell by your eyes that you’re in love with me.” F G Am F G Now son, I’m only telling you this because life can do terrible things. C Now most of the time we’d have too much to drink Am and we’d laugh at the stars and share everything. F Too young to notice and too dumb to care, G love was a story that couldn’t 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, I’m asking you please, G you know that I love you, will you marry me?” F G Am F G Now son, I’m only telling you this because life can do terrible things. F G Am F G You’ll 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 I’m sick and I’ve only got weeks. F Please don’t 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 don’t fall in love there’s just too much to lose Am if you’re given the choice, I’m begging you choose F to walk away, walk away, G don’t let it get you, I can’t bare to see the same happen to you. F G Am F G Now son, I’m only telling you this because life can do terrible things.
