He Didn't Have To Be - Paisley Brad

Capo 2nd Fret

My first tab. Posted because I couldnt find a 'correct' version.
Sounds right to me playing it finger style. You can play C's or Cadd9 all the way, I like
the way the Cadd9 sounds where I have it.

    F                  F
When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new

  G					Fadd9	  F
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
                 F
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone

       G               Fadd9         F
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

  F                F
I met the man I call my dad when I was 5 years old

   	  G             Fadd9     F
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
                F
A few months later I remember lying there in bed

    G                 Fadd9            F
I overheard him pop the question and I prayed that she'd say yes... And then


(1st Chorus)

 Dm            G
All of a sudden oh it seemed so strange to me

    F          		 F
How we went from somethings missing to a family
 Dm              G                Am   F
Looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me

 Dm               G			  F
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be

(Chords stay the same for next verse)

  F                F
I met the girl who's now my wife about three years ago

  G             	  Fadd9      F
We had the perfect marriage, but we wanted something more
                  F
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends

     G                 Fadd9        F
Crowded round the nursery window as they bring the baby in... And now

(2nd Chorus) - (Chords Stay same - Words Change)

 Dm            G
All of a sudden oh it seemed so strange to me

    	 F          		  F
How we've gone from somethings missing to a family
Dm             	  G                  Am  F
Looking through the glass I think about the man who's standing next to me
  Dm              G			   F
And I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be

Strum 4 bars: F F Dm G

 Dm              G                Am   F
Looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me

 Dm               G			  F
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be

 F              F
Because he didn't have to be

 F              F
You know he didn't have to be
