Once Upon a Lifetime  Alabama

Title: Once Upon A Lifetime
Written By: Gary Baker, Frank J. Myers
From: For The Record- 41 # 1 Hits
Transcribed By: Eric Burr
Note: I looked at this after I sent it in and found a few mistakes. Here is
a corrected version. This is the greatest song by Alabama in my opinion. For
me, it has held true for two of the three verses. It sounds close to the
recording, but I may have gotten a few of the chords out of place. Please
post any Alabama songs you have. Thanks.

Intro: Bm - G - D
[D]Once upon a lifeti[G]me
I looked in someone's eyes[Bm]
[G] [D]  
And felt the fire burning in my heart
For the ver[A]y first time
[D]She was scared and young[G]
And had never tasted love[Bm]
So I [D]took her by the hand[G]
And a boy[D] became a man[G]
[A]Once upon a lifeti[D]me.
[D]And once upon a lifetime[G]
You hold the queen of hearts[Bm]
But if you gamb[G]le on a diamond wh[D]en
The dea[A]ling starts
[D]You stand to lose it all[G]
As the cards begin to fall[Bm]
And the [D]lesson learned is hard[G]
You're only dealt[D] the queen of hearts[G]
[A]Once upon a lifeti[D]me,
So if[Bm] you take a chance
Just kn[G]ow the chance you take[D]
A br[Bm]oken heart's a high p[G]rice to pay[D]
[Bm]Foolish ways will make [F#m]fools of the wise[G]
And the best [Bm]things seldom come along [G]twice.[A]
[D]And once upon a lifetime[G]
You know that you've been blessed[Bm]
When you hold y[G]our first born tenderly [D]
[A]Against your chest
And through the innocenc[D]e you see[G]
There you are the family[Bm]
And you[D] feel a special bond[G]
That on[D]ly comes along[G]
[A]Once upon a lifeti[D]me.
Repeat Chorus.
And pe[G]ople only find[D]
A love[G] like yours and mine[D]
[A]Once upon a lifeti[D]me
Outro- G - D
