How To Play

D  G  D  G
 
     D
It's bottles and bibs, rattles and cribs
G
Three am's again and again
D
Comfort the cry
          G
Man, it's flying by
D
Swings and slides and tricycle rides
G
Skinning up knees and falling out of trees
D
It's like it's never gonna end
         G
But it's flying by
           A       E        A            E
You better hold on tight to those little lives
       A               E
In the blink of an eye it's out of sight
  A               G
I know, I know it goes so slow
         D
But it's flying by
 
          D
Then it's braces and boots and bad attitudes
G
Boys and phones and every change in moods
D                      G
Trying times, man, but you'll survive
D
And it's supposed to be home at ten
       G
You're late again Where the heck you been
            D
When you're yelling and screaming
                        G
It don't seem like it's flying by
         D
But it's flying by
           A       E        A              E
You better hold on tight to those changing lives
       A                E
In the blink of an eye they're out of sight
  A               G
I know, I know it seems so slow
         A      G
But it's flying by
D
There they go on their own
A      G
Flying by
       D
You're waving good bye with a tear in your eye
  A                       G            D
I know, I know you go so slow but it's flying by
 
     D
They come back home and what do you know
     G
Them kids have got some kids of their own
D
You can't believe how much they've grown
G
And where the time's gone
    D
You look in the mirror there's gray in your hair
       G
You're wondering how the world did that get there
D                           G
It just ain't fair how it's flying by
           A       E             A            E
You better hold on tight to that sweet, sweet life
       A                       E
In the blink of an eye they're out of sight
  A               G
I know, I know it goes so slow
         D
But it's flying by
 
          D
When it's hospital beds
                       G
Last words said, did I do enough
                  D                   G
Holding hands and being there for the leaving
       D
It's a line of cars parked on a hill
G
Family and friends perfectly still
  D                                           G
A prayer and a song as they lowered it down into the ground
           A       E            A            E
You better hold on tight it's a short, short life
       A                    E
In the blink of an eye it's out of sight
  A               G
I know, I know it seems so slow
                                D           G
Yeah, it seems so slow but it's flying by
     D           G
It's flying by
     D            G     D      G
It's flying by
     D            G     D      G
It's flying by
 
D     G (repeat till fade out)
