Intro -x2-: C G Am F

Verse:
 C                            G
The other day I got an email, I almost didn't read it
 Am                           F
But something caught my eye right before I could delete it
 C                            G
It was bold and underlined, "Please Read" was the title
 Am                           F
Followed by "Jake you are my idol"
 C                      G
It said and I quote, my name is Nikki and I used to be dancer
 Am                              F
Til the day the doctor diagnosed me with cancer
 C                               G
So I said goodbye to all the hair on my head
        Am                       F -single hit-
And said hello to my hospital bed


 C                                G
Yeah see I was just a normal girl, it happened so fast
 Am                               F
There were so many days that I thought would be my last
 C                                G
However the fight was tough, and the battle was long
 Am                               F -single hit-
But I felt strong when I listened to your songs
 C                                G
You were, always there for me, you helped my heart beat
 Am                               F
You were my only friend, kept you on repeat
 C                                G
I thank God for you every single night
 Am                               F -single hit-
Cause believe or not, you saved my life

Chorus:
     C                     G
I've met a million people, been a million places
 Am                      F
Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
      C                   G
I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
     Am                               F
No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives
     C                     G
I've met a million people, been a million places
 Am                      F
Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
     C                   G
Ive had a million lows, and a million more highs
     Am                          F
No I haven't made a million, but I've, but I've

Verse:
      C                    G
Yeah the mailman knocked said it was for me
 Am               F
Handed me a box, sent from Tennessee
 C                   G
Written on the top "for jakes eyes only"
 Am                       F
Inside was a journal and letter that he wrote me
 C                        G
It said my name is Dillon I'm in 7th grade
     Am                           F
I'm ridiculed and picked on almost everyday
          C                       G
Yeah they push me in the halls in between my classes
 Am                               F
Yesterday they took my books then broke my glasses
  C                        G
I got no one to talk to, its like I don't exist
 Am                                F
Sometimes I wonder if I was gone, would I be missed?
     C                   G
But lemme tell the real reason for this letter
       Am                               F
You've helped me through it all, you've help me feel better
      C                            G
You're words gimme confidence, your messages inspire me
 Am                         F
You help me find my inner strength deep inside me
 C                          G
Through all the bad times, you helped me find the light
 Am              F -single hit-
Believe or not, you saved my life

Chorus:
     C                     G
I've met a million people, been a million places

Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
      C                   G
I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
     Am                               F
No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives
     C                     G
I've met a million people, been a million places
 Am                      
Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
     C                   G

Verse:
        C                     G
I was sittin' at my table at dinner the other night
        Am                    F
When I noticed a little girl sittin' to my right
        C                      G
She was lookin' at me like she knew me, I guess she did
 Am                                 F
Cause then she walked right up to, and then she said
 C                      G
My name is Sami and I swear that I'm your biggest fan
 Am                     F
I think she even had my name written on her hand
 C                              G
She said me my brother used to listen to you every day
 Am               F -single hit-
Until last year, when he passed away


 C                G
I'll never forget seein' my parents cry
 Am                   F
When they got a call sayin' that your son had died
 C                               G
Man I wish that he was here now, you were his favorite
 Am                     F
He had your mixtape and never stopped playin' it
 C                      G
Your music gives me a feelin that I just can't describe
 Am                              F
Its like I got my brother back, and hes still alive
 C                       G
I pray for both of you, every single night
 Am                    F -single hit-
Cause believe or not, you saved my life

Chorus:
     C                     G
I've met a million people, been a million places

Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
      C                   G
I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
     Am                               F
No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives
     C                     G

Outro:
 C                          G
Now lemme turn the table, and talk to you
 Am                              F
I had a dream but your the reason that its comin' true
 C                               G
Yeah I've had some dark days, when the sun don't shine
 Am                         F
But you always reminded me that I would be fine
 C                          G
Cause when no else cared, you believed in my vision
 Am                         F
And now I got an army comin' with me on my mission
 C                          G
I thank God for all you, every single night
 Am                    F -single hit-
Cause believe or not, you saved my life
