How To Play

Capo: 6th fret

INTRO
G  Em  C  D  x2
 
VERSE 1
G               Em7
 I’m five years old 
              C
It’s getting cold 
            D
I’ve got my big coat on 
G            Em7
 I hear your laugh 
            C
And look up smiling at you 
  D
I run and run 
G                 Em7
 Past the pumpkin patch 
                C
And the tractor rides look now,
    D
The sky is gold 
G           Em7             C
 I hug your legs and fall asleep 
   D
On the way home
 
CHORUS
C        D                G            D/F#   Em
 I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall
C       D                    G  D/F#     Em
 I know you’re not scared of anything at all 
C              D                     G       D/F#  Em
 Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away 
                     C             D        G Em7 C D
But I know I had the best day with you today 
 
VERSE 2
G             Em7
 I’m thirteen now
               C
And don’t know how my friends 
      D
Could be so mean 
G            Em7
 I come home crying 
        C
And you hold me tight 
    D
And grab the keys 
G                   Em7
 And we drive and drive 
             C
Until we found a town 
     D
Far enough away 
G                Em7
 And we talk and window-shop 
      C              D
'til I’ve forgotten all their names 
 
CHORUS
C        D                  G       D/F#   Em
 I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school 
C           D               G        D/F#      Em
 I know I’m laughing on the car ride home with you 
C               D               G       D/F#  Em
 Don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel okay 
                     C             D        G
But I know I had the best day with you today 
 
BRIDGE
C
 I have an excellent father 
Em
 His strength is making me stronger 
C
 God smiles on my little brother 
Em                   D
 Inside and out he’s better than I am
C                      G
 I grew up in a pretty house 
          D/F#
And I had space to run 
    C         D
And I had the best days with you 
G           Em7
 There is a video 
  C                    D
I found from back when I was three 
G             Em7               C
 You set up a paint set in the kitchen 
           D
And you’re talking to me 
G                Em7            C
 It’s the age of princesses and pirate ships 
        D
And the seven dwarves 
G                  Em7                  C
And Daddy’s smart and you're the prettiest lady
       D
In the whole wide world 
 
CHORUS
C      D                G            D/F#   Em
 Now I know why all the trees change in the fall 
C                D          G         D/F#  Em
 I know you were on my side even when I was wrong 
      C                   D
And I love you for giving me your eyes 
G        D/F#     Em
 Staying back and watching me shine 
   C                 D
And I didn’t know if you knew 
       G           D/F#      Em
So I’m taking this chance to say 
               C             D        G
That I had the best day with you today
