~For the rest of the song, the drop D gets in the way. So you have to alter the chords =/ but it still sounds cool. ~Also, try to pick in the pattern of the piano, I was too lazy to put all of it down, so I just gave the chords to hold while you experiment with the picking.

VERSE 1: D A D G I don't get many things right the first time D Bm C A A/C# in fact I am told that a lot. Now I know all the wrong turns D G D Bm F#m A the stumbles and falls brought me here CHORUS: Bm G Bm E A And where was I before the day that I first saw your lovely face? F#m G now I see it every day D A D A Bm F#m G D A D A And I know, that I am, I am, I am, the luckiest VERSE 2: D A D G What if I'd been born 50 years before you D Bm C A A/C# in a house on the street where you live? Maybe I'd be outside D G D Bm F#m A as you pass on your bike would I know? CHORUS: Bm G Bm E A F#m G And in a wide sea of eyes, I'd see one pair that I'd recognize D A D A Bm F#m G D A D A And I know, that I am, I am, I am, the luckiest BRIDGE: Em Bm A/C# D G D A I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you. VERSE 3: D A D G Next door there's an old man who lived to his 90's D Bm C A and one day passed away in his sleep. And his wife A/C# D G D Bm F#m A she stayed for a couple of days and passed away. CHORUS: Bm G Bm E A F#m G I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know we belong. D A D A Bm F#m G D A That I know, that I am, I am, I am... ...the luckiest.
