I've seen some versions of this song out there and they seem a bit more complicated than
need be. I think this is a nice way to play through the chords of this song for
intermediate players (like me) who want to keep it simple and work towards adding more
difficult chords as they improve (i.e. in other versions Cm/G is listed. Cadd9 sounds
just as nice
and is easier to get to at times. Also D/G in other posts you can play as a D and I
think it still sounds good. Bm is probably the hardest chord in this song but it's the
correct chord and sounds good). Just my thoughts as this is my first attempt at posting 
a tab and I wanted to start with this. I'm in no way claiming this is 100% correct by 
any means
it's just a nice version of the song that's easier to play in my opinion. The finger
picking intro I figured out from looking at a combination of other tabs. It may not be
exact but it's pretty darn close and sounds good to me. Hope you enjoy!

G                      D
Sure I think about you now and then
  Cadd9                   G
But it's been a long long time
G                        D
I've got a good life now I've moved on
  Cadd9              D       Am  G/B
So when you cross my mind
C
I try not to think about
     G               G/B
What might have been
     Em              C
'Cause that was then
            D               Am   G/B
And we have taken different roads
C
We can't go back again
G                        Am
There's no use giving in
      G/B             D      Cadd9
And there's no way to know

What might have been

[INTRO REPEAT]

G                                D
We could sit and talk about this all night long
    Cadd9                 G
And wonder why we didn't last
G                               D
Yes they might be the best days we will ever know
   Cadd9                            D      Am    G/B
But we'll have to leave them in the past
C
So try not to think about

What might have been

There's no use giving in

And there's no way to know
                G
What might have been

[BRIDGE]

Em                         Bm
That same old look in your eyes
                 C
It's a beautiful night
                  D    G
I'm so tempted to stay
Em                         Bm
But too much time has gone by
                       C
We should just say goodbye
                  Dsus
And turn and walk away

D      Am7      Bm7

C
And try not to think about
      G              G/B
What might have been

I realized after I submitted this when I was playing through with the song I missed 2 notes. In the 2 sections where there are consecutive G's, the song actually drops down to a C9 then back up to the G. Just play along with the song and you will hear it. Oops lol
