Intro: C G C G F G C

    C                G        C           G        
I stumbled through visions, revealed my condition
    F          G            C
As thoroughly taken with you
       C              G             C           G 
Your blue eyes shot through me, I changed irrevocably
      F          G                C
The days of tomcatting were through
 C       G         C           G   
15 years old well, what did I know?
      F          G          C
I've never been one for a fight
  C          G        C           G 
I needed you then and every day since 
        F          G          C
like a flower is needing sunlight

  F                        C
I guess that I gave it up then
     F                        C     G
This self that alludes weaker men
    F                        C   
And what was my young heart to do?
  Am            G         F
A girlfriend as pretty as you

         C          G               C                G 
There in my early twenties, I spent most of it running
    F           G             C
But I never once missed my home
         C           G             C        G 
You were right there beside me, no idea who I would be
    F          G          C
And I never once felt alone
         C              G          C           G 
Then somewhere all this bitterness got tougher to dismiss
    F            G         C
And I started thinking a lot
           C                 G     C           G 
There has got to be more to life, then simply man and wife
   F               G                C
At least back then that's what I thought

  F                          C
I guess that you gave it up then
    F                          C     G
Yourself, for the sake of this man
    F                          C
And how could your young heart agree?
    Am         G        F
A boyfriend as angry as me

      F        C                F       C        F 
I was gonna be something that I saw on TV
         F           C                Am            G         F
You were more like a warm spring that weathered the winter of me
         Am            G         F
Ahh, You weathered the winter of me

    C              G                C           G 
I'm not that much older, there's so much that I still don't know
    F           G             C
And nothing to blame but this love
       C           G        C            G 
I feel no more a man then I did at that high school dance
    F            G             C
But time doesn't wait for no one
       C        G             C               G 
As for who we became, I still play in this band
F         G             C
You are a teacher at school
       C                 G       C             G 
And if this is what living is, I feel like an idiot
    F           G             C
For blaming my love like a fool

  F                          C     
I guess that we gave it up then
 F                          C          G
The truth is there are no regrets girl
F                          C     G
What was my young heart to do?
  Am            G         F
A girlfriend as pretty as you
  Am            G         F
A girlfriend as pretty as you
  Am            G         
A girlfriend as pretty as...
                F pretty as you
