VERSE 1:
     G/B    C              D             G
 I remember waiting by the curb with Mr. Murphy
            C                 D                    G
 When daddy picked me up from school his eyes were red
C                D             Em
 We drove to the hospital in a hurry
          C                                   D
 Where my family gathered around my Grandpa's bed

CHORUS 1:
        C
 He was my best friend
              G/B
 He taught me how to fish
       G               D/F#        C
 And I cried listening to my daddy pray
                       D               G  (repeat intro)
 For one of those I've loved along the way

VERSE 2:
           C             D              G
 She had a ribbon in her hair the day I met her
      C               D                  G
 That whole next year we couldn't get enough
           C          D                Em
 And after graduation she took off for Denver
       C                              D
 For a while we both tried to keep in touch

CHORUS 2:
         C
 She was my best friend
        G/B
 And it broke my heart
       G                D/F#      C
 But I don't regret the day she became
                   D               G
 One of those I've loved along the way

BRIDGE:
       D
 And I hope they know
C                   G/B
 I never would have made it this far
 D
 On my own
 C
 Where would we all would be without those
 G            D/F#
 Fathers and mothers
 Em           D/F#
 Sisters and brothers
     C                      Em        D/F#
 The friends I've made, the long lost lovers
C              D       Em
 I wouldn't be who I am today
    C                  D               Em    C
 If not for those I've loved along the way
          Em       D...
 Along the way

VERSE 3:
C               D                  G
 Now I'm just a country boy with a guitar
         C                  D                 G
 Looking back down this old road I've been traveling on
        C           D                 Em
 It was never about trying to be some big star
C                                    D
 For me it's always been about these songs

CHORUS 3:
             C
 See they're my best friends
             G/B
 They're the life I lead
       G               D             C
 And I hope they put a smile on your face
                 D               Em
 Those that I've loved along the way

OUTRO:
          C               D          Em
 'Cause I wouldn't be the man I am today
    C                  D
 If not for those I've loved...
          Em  C   Em   C   Em   C...
 Along the way
