Life Happened  Tammy Cochran

Life Happened - Tammy Cochran
Album: Life Happened
Writers: Patrick Jason Matthews/Kerry Kurt Phillips
Intro: A D A D
From the t[A]ime she was thirteen, Julie T[Bm7]hompson had a dream
That s[A]omeday she would see her name in li[D]ghts
And after e[A]very high school play the g[Bm7]rown-ups all would say
That J[A]ulie's future sure is looking b[D]right
Well I [F#m7]saw her selling v[E]ideos at a s[D]tore in Eastland Mall
I said [F#m7]why aren't you in H[E]ollywood t[D]aking casting calls
[Bm7]She handed me my change and started laug[Esus]hing [E]
Chorus 1:
And said, l[A]ife happened
[D]Me and Bobby C[E]hapman fell in l[A]ove
Daddy p[D]assed away and the b[E]abies came
And [F#m7]drama school was just too m[B]uch
Now there's little l[D]eague and mouths[Bm7] to feed
And I d[D]irect a kindergarten Christmas [Esus]pagea[E]nt
Life h[A]appened
[Esus] [E]  
Curtis [A]had an old Chevelle, the [Bm7]cops knew that car well
He never l[A]ost a race on Windy Hollow r[D]oad
By the t[A]ime he turned eighteen he was the G[Bm7]eorgia dirt track king
Proudly s[A]ponsored by the local Texa[D]co
I bumped [F#m7]into him at M[E]urphy's bar and he o[D]rdered us a round
I said [F#m7]why aren't you in R[E]ockingham c[D]hasing Gordon down
[Bm7]He killed his drink and tore the corners off his n[Esus]apkin[E]
Chorus 2:
And said, life happened
I was driving home from Athens late one night
A trucker fell asleep and swapped paint with me
Said I rolled that'vette at least five times
Now I thank my stars and I sell used cars
And I teach driver's education at St. Catherine's
Yeah life happened
[B] [C#m]  
I saw the r[D]est of my old friends
At our reunion at the Holiday Inn
And it s[A]eemed like it was o[E]nly yesterd[A]ay[B] [C#m]
Standing [D]in the gym in our cap and gown
Full of w[A]onder, lust and glory bound
We set [Bm7]out to chase our d[C#m]reams on wings of p[D]assion
But somew[Bm7]here along the way we got dist[Esus]racted[E]
Chorus 3:
Life happened
Our clothes went out of fashion with our songs
We started families and bought SUV's
Became step dads and soccer moms
I finally realized we turned alright
And we spent the night just catching up and dancing
And life happened
Ends on "A"
