Intro:

 G C G C G C G C 


Verse 1

     G C 
I remember we’d leave early, in the Carolina rain
 G C 
Go catchin’ frogs and fishin’ off the peer
           D D7 G C G C 
That was back in ’67; haven’t thought about those days in years
        G                     
And I must have been a sight to see, with a dirty face and skinned up knees
                                   C 
Reachin’ up so I could hold your hand
    D D7 G C G C 
I wish I’d said I love you then, but I didn’t know just how to tell you dad
     G  
I remember goin’ through my teens in tennis shoes and faded jeans
                               C 
Thinkin’ you could never understand
            D D7 G C G 
Wish I’d known what I was missin’ when I didn’t wanna listen to you dad


Chorus:

          Bm C G 
And the pages of my life just keep on turnin’
     Bm C G 
The way you always told me they would do
          Bm C G 
There’s lessons in this life that I’m still learnin’
        Am G/B C D 
Oh, I wish I was a little more like you


Verse 2:

             G C 
Well I was just now thinkin’ ‘bout you; so I took this time to write
 G C 
Write me back or call me when you can
 D D7 G C G 
Things back here are goin’ well; there’s really not much more to tell you dad
 D D7 G C G C G C 
I just wanted you to know, that you’re the best friend I’ve ever had
