[Intro]

Em   F#m   G   A


[Verse 1]

D                          G
Just the other night and a hometown football game
   D              Bm   Em                 A
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
    G         F#m            Bm                G
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
      Em                F#m          G                  A
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

D                        G
She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
    D                    Bm           Em                 A
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
    G            F#m           Bm                 G
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
    Em            F#m      A
I'd never ask for anything again


[Chorus]

                  D       G             A
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
    D                   Bm          Em       A
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
            D                F#m            G             Bm
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
        D              A    G                  D
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

D                                     G
She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
            D                  Bm
And I could tell that time had changed me
   Em              A
In her eyes too it seemed
            G              F#m
We tried to talk about the old days
             Bm              G
There wasn't much we could recall
            Em                   F#m         A
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

    G                    F#m          Bm
And as she walked away I looked at my wife
             Em                  F#m
And then and there I thanked the good Lord
        G           A
For the gifts in my life


[Chorus]

                  D       G             A
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
    D                   Bm          Em       A
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
            D                F#m            G             Bm
That just because he may not answer doesn't mean he don't care
        D              A    G
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered...
        D              A    G
Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
        D              A    G                  D
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

where it says,

"Past came back to me"

I think that an "A" should go in there (Bm A G)
