Again, I couldn't always hear the difference between Em/Em7
and C/Cadd9 etc. but I think I got it pretty close. Enjoy!

G Em C D x2


[Verse 1]

G               Em7
 I’m five years old 
               C
 It’s getting cold 
             D
 I’ve got my big coat on 

G            Em7
 I hear your laugh 
             C
 And look up smiling at you 
   D
 I run and run 

G                 Em7
 Past the pumpkin patch 
                 C
 And the tractor rides up now 
     D
 The sky is gold 
G           Em7             C
 I hug your legs and fall asleep 
    D
 On the way home


[Chorus]

C        D                G            D/F#   Em
 I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall
C       D                    G  D/F#     Em
 I know you’re not scared of anything at all 
C              D                     G       D/F#  Em
 Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away 
                      C             D        G Em7 C D
 But I know I had the best day with you today 


[Verse 2]

G             Em7
 I’m thirteen now
                C
 And don’t know how my friends 
       D
 Could be so mean 

G            Em7
 I come home crying 
         C
 And you hold me tight 
     D
 And grab the keys 

G                   Em7
 And we drive and drive 
              C
 Until we’ve found a town 
      D
 Far enough away 

G                Em7
 And we talk and window-shop 
       C              D
 Until I’ve forgotten all their names 


[Chorus]

C        D                  G       D/F#   Em
 I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school 
C           D               G        D/F#      Em
 I know I’m laughing on the car ride home with you 
C               D               G       D/F#  Em
 Don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel okay 
                      C             D        G
 But I know I had the best day with you today 

 
[Bridge]

C
 I have an excellent father 
Em
 His strength is making me stronger 
C
 God smiles on my little brother 
Em                   D
 Inside and out he’s better than I am

C                      G
 I grew up in a pretty house 
           D/F#
 And I had space to run 
     C         D
 And I had the best days with you 


G           Em7
 There is a video 
   C                    D
 I found from back when I was three 
G             Em7               C
 You set up a paint set in the kitchen 
            D
 And you’re talking to me 

G                 Em7            C
 It’s the edge of princesses and pirate ships 
         D
 And the seven dwarves 
G                  Em7                  C
 Daddy’s smart and you're the prettiest lady
        D
 In the whole wide world 

 
[Chorus]

C      D                G            D/F#   Em
 Now I know why all the trees change in the fall 
C                D          G         D/F#  Em
 I know you were on my side even when I was wrong 
       C                   D
 And I love you for giving me your eyes 
G        D/F#     Em
 Staying back and watching me shine 
    C                 D
 And I didn’t know if you knew 
        G           D/F#      Em
 So I’m taking this chance to say 
                C             D        G
 That I had the best day with you today
