Verse:
      E         B
Got a baby girl sleepin' in my bedroom
        Dbm                  A
And her momma laughing in my arms
            E                    B
There's the sound of rain on the rooftop
        Dbm             A
And the game's about to start
E                         B
I don't really know how I got here
        Dbm              A
But I'm so glad that I did
         E                   B
And it's crazy to think that one little thing 
           Dbm              A
Could have changed all of this
Gb                              A
Maybe it didn't turn out like I planned
Gbm                        A            B
Maybe that's why I'm such, such a lucky man

Chorus: 
Dbm   A
Every stoplight I didn't make 
E              B
Every chance I did or I didn't take
Dbm     A
All the nights I went too far
E       B
All the girls that broke my heart
Dbm     A
All the doors that I had to close
E                B                 A
All the things I knew but I didn't know
      E             Gb      A
Thank God for all I missed
         B                    
Cause it led me here to this

Interlude:
E B Dbm A
E B Dbm B A

Verse:
         E                    B
Like the girl that I loved in high school
    Dbm               A
Who said she could do better
       E                   B
Or the college I wanted to go to
       Dbm      A
Till I got that letter
        E                            B
All the fights and the tears and the heartache
              Dbm       A
I thought I'd never get through
        E               B
And the moment I almost gave up
    Dbm            A
All led me here to you
  Gbm                           A
I didn't understand it way back when
    Gbm
But sittin' here right now
   A                 B
It all makes perfect sense

Chorus: 
Dbm   A
Every stoplight I didn't make 
E              B
Every chance I did or I didn't take
Dbm     A
All the nights I went too far
E       B
All the girls that broke my heart
Dbm     A
All the doors that I had to close
E                B                 A
All the things I knew but I didn't know
      E             Gb      A
Thank God for all I missed
         B                    
Cause it led me here to this

Interlude:
E B Dbm A - 3x -
E B Dbm B A

Bridge:
     Gbm                        A
Oh I cried when my momma passed away
    Gbm 
And now I got an angel
        A            B
Looking out for me today
   A              B
So nothing's a mistake

Chorus: 
Dbm   A
Every stoplight I didn't make 
E              B
Every chance I did or I didn't take
Dbm     A
All the nights I went too far
E       B
All the girls that broke my heart
Dbm     A
All the doors that I had to close
E                B                 A
All the things I knew but I didn't know
      E             Gb      A
Thank God for all I missed
         B                    
Cause it led me here to this
