[Intro]

C  Am  F  G


[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.”


[Chorus]
    F        G    Am/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?”


[Chorus]

    F        G    Am/G#     Am         F           G
Now son, I’m only telling you this because life can do terrible things.
       F         G         Am/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.”
F        G       Am            
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 to
F
Walk away, walk away,
             G
Don’t let it get you, I can’t bare to see the same happen to you.


[Chorus]

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

my bad, its just a standard Am instead of Am9.
and that weird chord in the chorus I just play the G but instead of the bass note G I go up a fret to the G#.
sorry about that.
