Verse 1

D      Em   C    G       D       Em
Things I prayed for when I was young
         C            G           D        Em
That my father would love me like his only son
        C                G           D
That my mother would be patient with me
   Em                C      G
that my sister would not leave
     D  Em    C             G     D         Em
And If my grandpa could see me beyond his grave
            C             G         D     Em
That he'd think his little man was so great
          C                  G            D   Em
That my hair would not stick up in weird places
             C       G
And I'd be someone someday

Chorus:

C               D             Em         C
Years go by so easily that sometimes I forget
C               D                 Em                  A
Years go by and make me see that there's no time for my regret
            C
No time for my regret

Verse 2:

D      Em   C    G   D     Em
Things I prayed for in my teens
      C            G         D      Em
That God would forgive all my evil deeds
          C            G                  D
That my father and my sister would come home
     Em               C    G
And mom could meet our needs
    D  Em     C          G        D        Em
And If my grandpa could see me beyond his grave
           C      G             D       Em
That he'd say a prayer for his family's sake
         C               G            D    Em
That my hair would stick up in weird places
             C        G
And I'd be someone someday

CHORUS

SOLO (D  Em  C  G)

Verse 3:

D         Em       C         G
Things I pray for now in my twenties
D                     Em          C                 G
That God would still love me and Dad would like his new family
     D               Em             C         G
That I could hug my sister that my mom could rest
        D                Em          C       G
That my wife would still melt every time we kiss
     D  Em    C         G        D         Em
And if my grandpa has seen me beyond his grave
    C          G        D      Em
How cold and silent he has remained
          C                G           D   Em
That my hair would not fall out in weird places
             C      G
And I'd be someone someday
