[Verse]

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


[Refrain]

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


[Verse]

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


[Refrain]

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


[Verse]

           C
She said, “Boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
    Am
“It seems that I’m sick and I’ve only got weeks.
F
Please don’t be sad now, I really believe,
             G
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.”


[Bridge]

C        Am                   F            G
Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees.


[Verse]

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


[Refrain]

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

This is a brilliant version of the song but i think it should also have a C Chord at the very end of the song to end it smoothly - Thanks for the Chords!
