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

    Em
Now son, I'm only telling you this because
C
Life, can do terrible things

     G
Now most of the time we'd have too much to drink
       D
We'd laugh at the stars and we'd share everything
Em    
Too young to notice and too dumb to care
C
Love was a story that couldn't compare

          G
I said, "Girl can I tell you a wonderful thing
   D
I made you a present with paper and string
Em
Open with care, now I'm asking you please
C
You know that I love you, will you marry me?"

     Em
Now son, I'm only telling you this because
C
Life, can do terrible things
        Em
You'll learn one day, I hope and I pray
      C
That God, shows you differently

            G (1 hit, fade out) 
She said, "Boy can I tell you a terrible thing?
    D (same)
It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks
Em (same)
Please don't be sad now, I really believe
             C
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me."

G        D                    C           Em
Slow, so slow, I fell to the ground on my knees

   G
So don't fall in love, there's just too much to lose
   D
If given the choice then I beg you to choose
   Em
To walk away, walk away
Don't let her get you
C
I can't bare to see the same thing happen to you
    Em
Now son, I'm only telling you this because
C
Life, can do terrible things.

I think it should end with a G :)

Suggestions:
(Using the same chords above)

1. If you want a light, soft version of the song I would finger strum the chords and have the capo on 4

2. In my opinion, playing the song with the pick sounds good with the capo on 3.

Preference: I like to play the song using my first suggestion :)
