        C#                                      Bb
By the time I was your age I'd give anything to fall in
Love truly
Was all I could think,
           F#
That's when I met your mother
The girl of my dreams,
           Ab
The most beautiful woman that I'd ever seen.
         C#
She said boy can I tell you a wonderful thing?
 Bb
"I can't help but notice you staring at me,
   F#
I know I shouldn't say this, but I really believe,
      Ab
I can tell by your eyes that you're in love with me."
    F#        Ab    *A/Bb     Bb            F#  
Now son, I'm only telling you this because life can do
  Ab           C#
Terrible things.

C#, Bb, F#, Ab

     C#
Now most of the time we'd have too much to drink
          Bb
And we'd laugh at the stars and share everything.
 F#
Too young to notice and too dumb to care,
 Ab
Love was a story that couldn't compare.
        C#
I said girl can I tell you a wonderful thing?
 Bb
"I made you a present with paper and string,
 F#
Open with care now, I'm asking you please,
   Ab
You know that I love you,
Will you marry me?"
    F#        Ab    *A/Bb     Bb            F#  
Now son, I'm only telling you this because life can do
  Ab          
Terrible things.
        F#       Ab        *A/Bb       Bb        F#
You'll learn one day, and I hope and I pray that God
         Ab
Shows you differently.
         C#
She said boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
     Bb
"It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks.
 F#
Please don't be sad now, I really believe,
  Ab                                              
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me."

C#, Bb, F#, Ab

 C#       Bb               F#            Ab
Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees.

C#
So don't fall in love there's just too much to lose
           Bb
If you're given the choice, I'm begging you choose to
 F#
Walk away, walk away,
                          Ab
Don't let it get you, I can't bare to see the same
Happen to you.
    F#        Ab    *A/Bb     Bb            F#  
Now son, I'm only telling you this because life can do
  Ab         C#
Terrible things.
