[Bridge 1]

G                       D                  C               G
They said I was nothing but a troublemaker never up to no good
G                        D                        C                   G
you were the perfect all american girl wouldn't touch me even if you could
G                              D                         C            G
but you were sneaking out your window every night riding shotgun in my car
G                      D                    C                      G
we go to the river and find us a spot and probably went a little too far
                 C  (Let it ring)
Just a little too far


[Chorus 1]

G                            C
cause I was gonna be your forever
D                    C
you were gonna be my wife
G                  C
We didn't know any better
D                        C
Didn't have a clue about life
G                           C
But I was what you wanted you were what I needed
D                     C
And we could meet in between
G                     C                       D             G
We were gonna be the greatest love story this town had ever seen


[Instrumental]

G  D  C  G (Just like the bridge #1)


[Bridge 2]

G                              D                 C                 G
So you went off to college and I got a job I was working that 9 to 5
G                        D                           C              G
Dreaming of the days when you were in my arms I have never felt so alive
G                        D                         C               G
I spent my days working, spent my nights drinkin, howling at the moon
G                           D                     C                   G
Screaming for the days when you were coming back No couldn't come too soon
                     C
Couldn't come too soon


[Chorus 2]

G                         C
When I was gonna be your forever
D                    C
You were gonna be my wife
G                         C          D                        C
But you went off to find better and I was learning all about life
G                             C
But I was what you wanted and you were what I needed
D                       C
And we could meet in between
G                    C                          D              G
We were gonna be the greatest love story this town had ever seen


[Instrumental 2]

G  D  C  G  (Just like previous instrumental)


[Bridge 3]
(single strum these 4 lines chords)

G                        D
So you came back after a long four years
C                                   G
Your college boyfriend didn't work out
G                    D                    C                    G
So we went out for a couple of drinks to find out who we are now
G                    D                          C                   G
Sure we changed but way deep down you had the same old feelings for me
G                           D                        C               G
So I went to the store and I bought you a ring and I got down on one knee
                C
Got down on one knee

N.C.
And I said


[Chorus 3]

G                   C
I am gonna be your forever
D                      C
So baby will you be my wife
G                        C        D                         C
Now that we know a little better we could have a real nice life
G                              C
Cause I'm what you wanted and you're what I need
D                  C
So let's meet in between
G                  C                         D              G
We are gonna be the greatest love story this town has ever seen
G                  C                         D              G
We are gonna be the greatest love story this world has ever seen
C                    G (Let it ring)
So baby say yes to me
