Brad Paisley - He Didn't Have To Be

Printable Version


From "Who Needs Pictures"

Tab By:  Eddie Garcia (string50@hotmail.com)

Capo: 2nd fret

[G]When a single mom goes out on a date with [C]somebody new
It al[D]ways winds up feeling more like a [C]job interview[G]
My momma used to wonder if she'd e[C]ver meet someone
Who wouldn't [D]find out about me and then [C]turn around and [G]run

[G]I met the man I call my dad when [C]I was five years old
He took my [D]mom out to a movie and for [C]once I got to [G]go
[G]A few months later I remember [C]lying there in bed
I over [D]heard him pop the question and I [C]prayed that she'd say [G]yes

CHORUS #1:
And then [Am]all of a sudden, Oh it [D]seemed so strange to me
How we [G]went from something's missing to a [C]family
[Am]Looking back all I can say a[D]bout all the things he did for [Em]me
[Am]Is I hope I'm at least half the [D]dad that he didn't have to [G]be

[G]I met the girl who's now my wife about [C]three years ago
We [D]had the perfect marriage, but we [C]wanted something [G]more
Now here I stand surrounded by our [C]family and friends
Crowded [D]round the nursery window as they [C]bring the baby [G]in

CHORUS #2:
And now [Am]all of a sudden Oh it [D]seemed so strange to me
How we've [G]gone from something's missing to a [C]family
[Am]Looking through the glass I think a[D]bout the man who's standing next to [Em]me
[Am]And I hope I'm at least half the [D]dad that he didn't have to [G]be

[Am]Lookin' back all I can say a[D]bout all the things he did for [Em]me
[Am]Is I hope I'm at least half the [D]dad that he didn't have to [G]be
[Am]Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the [D]dad that he didn't have to [G]be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be
