       C                    
By the time I was your age Id give anything,
   Am
To fall in love truly was all I could think,
            F
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 youre 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.

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

Verse 2
  C
Now most of the time wed have too much to drink,
         Am
And wed laugh at the stars and wed 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 of paper and string,
 F
Open with care now Im asking you please,
     G
You know that I love you,

Will you marry me?



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

Verse 3:
          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
Slow, So Slow, 
              F
I fell to the ground,
   G
On my knees.

   C               
So dont fall in love theres just too much to lose,
          Am
If youre given the choice then I beg you to choose,
   F
To walk away walk away,

Dont let it get you,
    G
I cant bear to see the same happen to you.


Chorus:
    F       G       Am       C             F   
Now son Im only telling you this because life,
       G                C
Can do terrible things.
