Once Upon a Lifetime -  by Alabama   

(Version 2 - Tuned Ĺ step down)

Intro:    Bm     G      D

Verse 1:
D               G
Once upon a lifetime
                      Bm
I looked in someoneís eyes
                  G             D
And felt the fire burning in my heart
         A
For the very first time
D                  G
She was scared and young
                     Bm
And had never tasted love
     D               G
So I took her by the hand
      D            G
And a boy become a man
A               D
Once upon a lifetime

Verse 2:
D               G
And once upon a lifetime
                      Bm
You hold the queen of hearts
              G                D
But if you gamble on a diamond when
            A
The dealing starts
D                    G
You stand to lose it all
                      Bm
As the cards begin to fall
    D                  G
And the lesson learned is hard
            D                  G
Youíre only dealt the queen of hearts
A            D
Once upon a lifetime

Chorus:
      Bm
So if you take a chance
     G                   D
Just know the chance you take
    Bm             G             D
A broken heartís a high price to pay
Bm                     F#m          G
Foolish ways will make fools of the wise
        Bm                 G          A
And the best things seldom come along twice

Verse 3:
D               G
And once upon a lifetime
                          Bm
You know that youíve been blessed
            G                  D
When you hold your first born tenderly
             A
Against your chest
D                             G
And through the innocence you see
                  Bm
There you are the family
    D                  G
And you feel a special bond
D                G
That only comes along
A           D
Once upon a lifetime

Chorus:
      Bm
So if you take a chance
     G                   D
Just know the chance you take
     Bm            G             D
A broken heartís a high price to pay
Bm                     F#m          G
Foolish ways will make fools of the wise
        Bm                 G          A
And the best things seldom come along twice

Verse 4:
    G           D
And people only find
   G                  D
A love like yours and mine
A               D
Once upon a lifetime
