Once Upon A Lifetime
recorded by Alabama
written by Frank J.Myers and Gary Baker

C               F                          Am
Once upon a lifetime I looked in someone's eyes
                  F             C             G7
And felt the fire burning in my heart for the very first time
C                  F                          Am
She was scared and young and had never tasted love
     C               F              C        F
So I took her by the hand and a boy became a man
G7              C
Once upon a lifetime
                    F                          Am
And once upon a lifetime you hold the queen of hearts
                 F     C                 G7
But if you gamble on a diamond  when the dealing starts
C                         F                     Am
You stand to lose it all  as the cards begin to fall
        C                 F                           C        F
And the lesson learned is hard  you're only dealt the queen of hearts
G7              C
Once upon a lifetime
      Am                    F                   C
So if you're taking chances know the chance you take
  Am               F             C
A broken heart's a high price to pay
Am                     Em           F
Foolish ways will make fools of the wise
             Am                 F      G7
And the best things seldom come along  twice
C               F                               Am
Once upon a lifetime  you know that you've been blessed
              F                     C               G7
When you hold your first born tenderly against your chest
                      C       F                 Am
Through the innocence you see there you are the family
        C              F         C          F
And you feel a special bond that only comes along
G7              C
Once upon a lifetime
Repeat #3
    F           C       F                  C
And people only find a love like yours and mine
G7              C
Once upon a lifetime
