VERSE 1
********
    
I could've worked a whole lot harder 

Could've listened to my father 
                                        D
Could've forged ahead, rather than just drifted through 

Could've been a top man somewhere 

Could've done that, lived that dream there 
                                            G
Could've been so keen there'd be so much to do 


---------------------
VERSE 2
********

I made mistakes that lead me nowhere 

Mistakes that made me go where 
                                   C
I found a locked door labelled déjà vu 

And though I see so clearly
       G
Every locked door cost me dearly 
   D                               G
As I look back, I see that's how I grew 
        D                             G
And the one mistake I didn't make was you 


---------------------
VERSE 3
********

I wouldn't network with the winners 

Wouldn't get beyond beginners 
                                           D
Always thought the sinners better than the saints could be 

I wouldn't join the corporation 

Wouldn't rise up to their station 
                                    G
Always felt that levitation was too much for me


---------------------
VERSE 4
********
 
I couldn't solve the big conundrum 

So, I settled for the humdrum 
                             C
Decided that I didn't have a clue 

And though I see so clearly
         G
They all thought it cost me dearly 
   D                               G
As I look back, I see that's how I grew 
        D                             G
And the one mistake I didn't make was you 


---------------------
BRIDGE
*******
         C                G
I didn't make that big mistake 
         A7
Though I made a lot of small ones 
       D
Made a lot of trip and fall ones 
          C                 G
Now we're free, that's history 
         A7
So let's take our time don't hurry 
           D
There's no need for all that worry 


---------------------
VERSE 5
********
           G
'Cause I'll never be a grafter
 
It's not money that I'm after 
                                         D
I just need to hear your laughter in the afternoon 

I'm not chasing any dream now 

Haven't got the perfect scheme now 
                                         G
Let it all be as it seems, just one long honeymoon


---------------------
VERSE 6
********
 
Oh, they can drive their big Mercedes 

On their journey down to Hades 
                                                  C
They can have the whole damn world till payment’s due 

Because now I see so clearly 
      G
It'll cost them all so dearly 
            D                            G
For there's only so much time as we pass through
        D                             G
And the one mistake I didn't make was you 

Because now I see so clearly 
      G
It'll cost them all so dearly 
            D                            G
For there's only so much time as we pass through
        D                             G
And the one mistake I didn't make was you
