Standard Tuning
Capo 1st fret


Intro C, Amin, F, G

       C                                        Amin
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?
 Amin
“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.”

Chorus:

    F        G    Amin/G#     Amin         F           G
Now son, I’m only telling you this because life can do terrible things.

That's pretty much the whole song.
It just uses those two progressions.
Enjoy!

Lyrics:

By the time I was your age I’d give anything to fall in
love truly
was all I could think,
that’s when I met your mother
the girl of my dreams,
the most beautiful woman that I’d ever seen.
She said boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
“I can’t help but notice you staring at me,
I know I shouldn’t say this, but I really believe,
I can tell by your eyes that you’re in love with me.”
Now son, I’m only telling you this because life can do
terrible things.

Now most of the time we’d have too much to drink
and we’d laugh at the stars and share everything.
Too young to notice and too dumb to care,
love was a story that couldn’t compare.
I said girl can I tell you a wonderful thing?
“I made you a present with paper and string,
open with care now, I’m asking you please,
you know that I love you,
will you marry me?”


Now son I’m only telling you this because life can do
terrible things
you’ll learn one day, and I hope and I pray that God
shows you differently.

She said boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
“It seems that I’m sick and I’ve only got weeks.
Please don’t be sad now, I really believe,
you were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.”

Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees.

So don’t fall in love there’s just too much to lose
if you’re given the choice, I’m begging you choose to
walk away, walk away,
don’t let it get you, I can’t bare to see the same
happen to you.

Now son, I’m only telling you this, because life can do
terrible things.

my bad, its just a standard Am instead of Am9.
and that weird chord in the chorus I just play the G but instead of the bass note G I go up a fret to the G#.
sorry about that.
