Verse 1
D               A  
I turned on the evening news
G             A
Saw a old man being interviewed
D          A               G
Turning a hundred and two today
D                A
Asked him what's the secret to life
G            A 
He looked up from his old pipe
D           A               G
Laughed and said "All I can say is."

Chorus

D
Don't blink
A                     G                     A             
Just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you
D                  A                                          
Wake up and you're twenty-five and 
     G                                   A
your high school sweetheart becomes your wife

D
Don't blink
A                   G                    A 
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
D            A                  G                    A
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your "better half"
    Em                  D
Of fifty years is there in bed
    G                        D
And you're praying God takes you instead
Em                                          A
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
         D             A       G      A
So don't blink

Verse 2
D               A                 G                 A  
I was glued to my tv when it looked like he looked at me and said
D            A                    G          A                  
"Best start putting first things first."
D                     A
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
         G                  A
You can't flip it over and start again
D                       A                      G 
Take every breathe God gives you for what it's worth



Chorus

D
Don't Blink
A                     G                     A             
Just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you
D                  A     
Wake up and you're twenty-five and
     G                                   A
your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
D
Don't blink
A                   G                    A 
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
D            A                  G                    A
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your "better half"
   Em                      D
Of fifty years is there in bed
   G                        D
And you're praying God takes you instead
Em                                          A
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
         D             A       G      A
So don't blink

Guitar Solo
Refrain
       Em
So I've been tryin' ta slow it down
     D
I've been tryin' ta take it in
      G                                        A
In this here today, gone tomorrow world we're livin' in

Chorus

D
Don't Blink
A                     G                     A             
Just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you
D                  A     
Wake up and you're twenty-five and
     G                                   A

D
Don't blink
A                   G                    A

         D             A       G      A
So don't blink

might just be my ear, but I'm thinking that the D above "becomes your wife" should actually be an A, but whatever sounds better is fine....

I definitely agree with rymoe...also must add that other than that this version is far better than the other one (to my ear anyway)
