Terrible Things- Mayday Parade.

Tabbed by: cassieizyay@yahoo.com

So, I've been playing it like this since I first heard the song.
Substitutions for Am9's are Am's.
I found Am's a bit easier to play.

Standard Tuning

*Capo 1st fret*

C -   x32010

Am -  002210

F -   133211

G -   320003

Intro C, Am, F, G

       C                                        Am
By the time I was your age I'd give anything to fall in love truly
was all I could think, that's when I met your mother the girl of my dreams,
the most beautiful woman that I'd ever seen.
She said boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
"I can't help but notice you staring at me,
I know I shouldn't say this, but I really believe,
I can tell by your eyes that you're in love with me."


    F        G    Am          Am9         F           G
Now son, I'm only telling you this because life can do terrible things.

The rest is the same progression.

Now most of the time we'd have too much to drink
and we'd laugh at the stars and share everything.
Too young to notice and too dumb to care,
love was a story that couldn't compare.
I said girl can I tell you a wonderful thing?
"I made you a present with paper and string,
open with care now, I'm asking you please,
you know that I love you,
will you marry me?"

Now son I'm only telling you this because life can do
terrible things
you'll learn one day, and I hope and I pray that God
shows you differently.

She said boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
"It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks.
Please don’t be sad now, I really believe,
you were the greatest thing that ever happened to me."

Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees.

So don't fall in love there's just too much to lose
if you're given the choice, I'm begging you choose to
walk away, walk away,
don't let it get you, I can't bare to see the same
happen to you.

Now son, I'm only telling you this, because life can do
terrible things.
