He Didn't Have To Be - Paisley Brad

Capo 2nd Fret

My first tab. Posted because I couldnt find a 'correct' version.
Sounds right to me playing it finger style. You can play C's or Cadd9 all the way, I like
the way the Cadd9 sounds where I have it.

       G                                  C
When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
   D					Cadd9	    G
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
                                 C
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
            D                           Cadd9           G
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run
  G                              C
I met the man I call my dad when I was 5 years old
      	    D                         Cadd9         G
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
                              C
A few months later I remember lying there in bed
      D                                Cadd9                 G
I overheard him pop the question and I prayed that she'd say yes... And then

(1st Chorus)

Am                    D
All of a sudden oh it seemed so strange to me 
       G                    		 C
How we went from somethings missing to a family
Am                         D                              Em   C
Looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me
  Am                             D			   G
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be

(Chords stay the same for next verse)

  G                              C
I met the girl who's now my wife about three years ago
   D                          	    Cadd9            G
We had the perfect marriage, but we wanted something more
                                   C
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends
         D                               Cadd9          G
Crowded round the nursery window as they bring the baby in... And now

(2nd Chorus) - (Chords Stay same - Words Change)

Am                    D
All of a sudden oh it seemed so strange to me 
       	  G                    		    C
How we've gone from somethings missing to a family
Am                         	   D                                   Em   C
Looking through the glass I think about the man who's standing next to me
    Am                           D			     G
And I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be 

Strum 4 bars: G C Am D

Am                         D                              Em   C
Looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me
  Am                             D			   G
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be

C                         G
Because he didn't have to be
C                          G
You know he didn't have to be

Missing the (very) short breaks, just G - - - - - - - C - - - - - - - (those are 8 beats, use Cadd9 maybe?) And it's doesn't stop right away at the end, but fades out with G, then C (or Cadd9) 8 or 9 times. The intro is G - - - C - - - (twice). A very good tab, I'd give it 5 stars every day if I were allowed to vote more than once.

Sorry, the short breaks are G - - - - - C(add9) - (each - is one beat) (Strum the C[add 9] once, and hold 2 beats)
