Intro - x2 -: Db Bbm Gb Ab

Db               Bbm7
 I’m five years old 
 It’s getting cold 
 I’ve got my big coat on 

Db            Bbm7
 I hear your laugh 
 And look up smiling at you 
 I run and run 

Db                 Bbm7
 Past the pumpkin patch 
 And the tractor rides up now 
 The sky is gold 
Db           Bbm7             Gb
 I hug your legs and fall asleep 
 On the way home

Gb        Ab                Db            Ab     Bbm
 I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall
Gb       Ab                    Db  Ab       Bbm
 I know you’re not scared of anything at all 
Gb              Ab                     Db       Ab    Bbm
 Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away 
                      Gb             Ab        Db Bbm7 Gb Ab
 But I know I had the best day with you today 

Db             Bbm7
 I’m thirteen now
 And don’t know how my friends 
 Could be so mean 

Db            Bbm7
 I come home crying 
 And you hold me tight 
 And grab the keys 

Db                   Bbm7
 And we drive and drive 
 Until we’ve found a town 
 Far enough away 

Db                Bbm7
 And we talk and window-shop 
       Gb              Ab
 Until I’ve forgotten all their names 

Gb        Ab                  Db       Ab     Bbm
 I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school 
Gb           Ab               Db        Ab        Bbm
 I know I’m laughing on the car ride home with you 
Gb               Ab               Db       Ab    Bbm
 Don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel okay 
                      Gb             Ab        Db
 But I know I had the best day with you today 

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

Gb                      Db
 I grew up in a pretty house 
 And I had space to run 
     Gb         Ab
 And I had the best days with you 

Db           Bbm7
 There is a video 
   Gb                    Ab
 I found from back when I was three 
Db             Bbm7               Gb
 You set up a paint set in the kitchen 
 And you’re talking to me 

Db                 Bbm7            Gb
 It’s the edge of princesses and pirate ships 
 And the seven dwarves 
Db                  Bbm7                  Gb
 Daddy’s smart and you're the prettiest lady
 In the whole wide world 

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

  1. I love this and I think its perfect, but if you put Ab down a fret it sounds better to me.

  2. Maya king

    This isn’t the full lyrics

  3. Elizabeth Howell

    If you use -1, then change all of the Am7 to Am. It sounds better that way.

  4. Caroline

    This is such a sweet song! I use -1 half step
