Live Like You Were Dying3-crd  Tim McGraw

He said I was[G] in my early forties with a[Cadd9] lot of life before me
and a[Em] moment came that[D] stopped me on a[Cadd9] dime
I spent[G] most of the next days[Cadd9] looking at the x-rays
[Em]talking ?bout the [D]options and [Cadd9]talkin? ?bout sweet time
[E5]I asked him when it sank in if [E5/Eb]this might really be the real end
How?s it[E5/D] hit ?cha when you get that kind of[C5] news, man what?cha do?
Chorus:
I wen[G]t sky diving
I went[Cadd9] rocky mountain climbing
I went[Em] two point seven[D] seconds on a[Cadd9] bull named Fu Man Chu
     [G]                   [B7]            [Em] [D]          [Cadd9]
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I gave forgiveness id been denying
[D]                                                   [G]                                    
and he said some day I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying

Verse 2:
He said I was[G] finally the husband that[Cadd9] most the time I wasn?t
And I[Em] became a friend a[D] friend would like to[Cadd9] have
And[G] all of a sudden going[Cadd9] fishin? wasn?t such an imposition
[Em]And I went three times that [D]year I lost my [Cadd9]dad
Bridge:
[E5]Well I finally read the Good Book and I [E5/Eb]took a good long hard look
at what I'd[E5/D] do if I could do it all[C5] again and then?
Chorus:
I went[G] sky diving
I went[Cadd9] rocky mountain climbing
I went[Em] two point seven[D] seconds on a[Cadd9] bull named Fu Man Chu
     [G]                   [B7]            [Em] [D]              [Cadd9]
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I gave forgiveness id been denying

[E5]and he said some day I hope you get the chance to live like you
were dying
    [E5/Eb]                                [E5/D] [C]Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about what
you?d do?
with it
What could you[Cm] do with it
What could I[Cdim] do with it
What would I[C] do with it
(key change up whole step)
Chorus:
I went[A] sky diving
I went[Dadd9] rocky mountain climbing
I went[F#m] two point seven[E] seconds on a[Dadd9] bull named Fu Man Chu
     [A]                   [C#7]            [F#m] [E] [Dadd9]And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I watched an eagle as it
was flying
                                    [E] [A]and he said some day I hope you get the chance to live like you
were dying
To live like you were[A] dying[D]
To live like you were[A] dying[D]
To live like you were[A] dying[D]
To live like you were[A] dying[D]
