Intro: D  G  D  A  Bm  D  G  A

Verse 1:
D       A        Bm               G
I don't get many things right the first time
   D          Bm         G*          A             A7
In fact, I am told, that alot, now I know, all the wrong turns
    Bm            G                 D    Bm  F#m  A
The stumbles, and falls, brought me here

Bm            G            Bm          E
And where was I before the day I first saw
            A               D        G*
Your lovely face, 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

D  G  D  A

Verse 2:
        D        A    Bm       G
What if I'd been born 50 years before you
     D            Bm               G*          A         A7
In a house on the street where you live, Maybe I'd be outside
       Bm             G             D     Bm  F#m  A
As you passed on your bike, would I know,

Bm           G            Bm          E             A      D    G*
And then oh, I'd see your eyes as the one pair that I 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

Bm                               E              D      G    D  A
I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you

Verse 3:
     D                A           Bm           G
Next door, there's an old man who lived to his 90's
        D          Bm          G*             A
And one day passed away in his sleep, and his wife
    A7                  Bm        G               D    Bm  F#m  A
She stayed around for a couple of days and passed away

Bm         G               Bm             E               A
I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know
     D    G*    D A          D A  Bm F#m G D  A    Bm       F#m  G  D A D
We belong, that I know, that I am, I am, I am, the luckiest
