The Luckiest  Ben Folds

[D]I don't g[A]et many thing[D]s right the first [G]time
In [D]fact, I am to[Bm]ld that a lo[C]t  [C]
Now I kno[A]w all the wrong [A/C#]turns,
The stu[D]mbles and falls br[G]ought me here          [D]         [Bm]         [F#m]     [A]

[Bm]And where was [G]I before the [Bm]day
That I first saw[E] your lovely face    [A]
Now I [F#m]see it every [G]day[G]
And I k[D]now[A]
That I [D]am [A]
[Bm]I   [F#m]  am
[G]I [D-A]am the luc[D]kiest         [A]

What if I'd[D] been born [A]
[D]Fifty years before[G] you
In a h[D]ouse
On the stre[Bm]et where you live     [C]    [C]
Maybe I'd b[A]e outside  [A/C#]
As you pass[D]ed on your bike       [G]
Would I know[D]?          [Bm]        [F#m]        [A]
[Bm]And in a wid[G]e see of eyes [Bm]
I see one[E] pair I re[A]cognize    [F#m]           [G]    [Gsus2]        [G]
And I [D]know[A]
That I a[D]m  [A]
[Bm]I   [F#m]  am
[G]I [D-A]am the luc[D]kiest         [A]
[Em]I love you more than I have          [Bm]
Ever [Bm]found a way to say to y[D]ou     [G]     [D]    [A]
Next doo[D]r
There's an old m[A]an
Who liv[D]ed to his nineti[G]es
And one day, [D]passed away in hi[Bm]s sleep         [C]      [C]
And his wife[A], she stayed  [A/C#]
For a coup[D]le of days an[G]d passed away             [D]    [Bm]    [F#m]     [A]
[Bm]I'm sorry, [G]I know that's a
[Bm]Strange way to tell [E]you that I know    [A]
We belo[F#m]ng       [G]   [G]
That I [D]kn[A]ow
That I a[D]m  [A]
[Bm]I   [F#m]  am
[G]I [D-A]am the lucki[Bm]est      [F#m]       [G]        [D]      [A]      [D]
