The Luckiest

Ben Folds

 DADG
 I don't get many things right the first time
 DBmCC
In fact, I am told that a lot   
 AA/C#
Now I know all the wrong turns,
 DGDBmF#mA
The stumbles and falls brought me here                                  

 BmGBm
 And where was I before the day
 EA
That I first saw your lovely face     
 F#mGG
Now I see it every day 
 DA
And I know 
 DA
That I am  
 BmF#m
 I     am
 GD-ADA
 am the luckiest          

 DA
What if I'd been born  
 DG
 Fifty years before you
 D
In a house
 BmCC
On the street where you live          
 AA/C#
Maybe I'd be outside   
 DG
As you passed on your bike        
 DBmF#mA
Would I know?                           
 BmGBm
 And in a wide see of eyes  
 EAF#mGGsus2G
I see one pair I recognize                            

 DA
And I know 

 DA
That I am   
 BmF#m
 I     am
 GD-ADA
 am the luckiest          

 EmBm
 I love you more than I have           
 BmDGDA
Ever found a way to say to you               

 D
Next door
 A
There's an old man
 DG
Who lived to his nineties
 DBmCC
And one day, passed away in his sleep                

 AA/C#
And his wife, she stayed   
 DGDBmF#mA
For a couple of days and passed away                           

 BmG
 I'm sorry, I know that's a
 BmEA
 Strange way to tell you that I know     
 F#mGG
We belong           
 DA
That I know

 DA
That I am   
 BmF#m
 I     am
 GD-ABmF#mGDAD
 am the luckiest
