       C                  
By the time I was your age, I'd give anything 
   Am
To fall in love truly, was all I could think
            F
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're 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."

Now son I'm only telling you this because life can do terrible things

     C
Now, most of the time we'd have too much to drink
         Am
And we'd laugh at the stars and we'd 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?"


2nd Chorus: 

    F  G  Am    F     G    F   G  Am    F    G   G*

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

       F         G         Am                      F             G       G*
You'll learn one day, I'll hope and I'll pray that God shows you differently

           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."

C, Am, F, G

C        Am                 F            G
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
          Am 
If you're given the choice, then I beg you to choose
   F
To walk away, walk away, don't let her get you.
        G
I can't bear to see the same happen to you.


     F      G    Am                       F           G             C*
Now son I'm only telling you this because life can do terrible things
