Then
Brad Paisley
Album: American Saturday Night (Due out June 30th.)

VERSE:
        Am     F            C          G                 Am       F   
Well I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you 
C                  G
you had me mesmerized
Am                F                          C                 G
Three weeks later in the front porch light taking 45 minutes to kiss goodnight I 
F
hadn't told you yet but I thought I loved you then

C                    G                       Am
Now you're my whole life now your my whole world
                 F                            C                           G
I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl like a river meets the sea 
  G#m                  Am                             F           
stronger then its ever been we've come so far since that day and I thought I 
C
loved you then
               

(Same as first verse)

I remember taking you back to right where I first met you
You were so surprised
There were people around but I didn't care I got down on one knee
right there and once again I thought I loved you then

(Exact same as first chorus)

Now you're my whole life now your my whole world
I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl
like a river meets the sea stronger then its ever been
we've come so far since that day and I thought I loved you then

         G                F           C               G                     F 
I can just see you with a baby on the way and I just can see you when your hair 
C
is turning grey
Am                     C                           F                           G
And what I can't see is how I'm ever gonna love you more but I've said that before

(Exact same as other chorus)

Now you're my whole life now your my whole world
I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl
like a river meets the sea stronger then its ever been
we've come so far since that day and I thought I loved you then

dude great song! Great job charting it up! maybe you could put the intro tho. and maybe tab up the lead licks!

I'm working on tabbing out the guitar parts now, though it might take me a little bit. Also, the chart is kinda sloppy, but once you listen to the song I think it's easy to get.

Great new song from Brad Paisley if you ask me :)
-PhoenixMandolin | 3/19/2009
The Gm in the chorus is actually a G#dim. one way to play that is like this:

--4--
--3--
--4--
--x--
--x--
--4--

Kind of like a D7 chord shape on the high strings and play the low string with your thumb. (Or you could just play the 4th fret on the bass string and let the keyboard player do the rest!!!)
-BrianEarlHaines | 3/20/2009
lol I didn't even realize I put Gm. I thought I put G#m..... The G#dim sounds great on that part too. Thanks :)
-PhoenixMandolin | 3/23/2009
See below for the words to the last chorus:

Now you're my whole life
Now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
We’ll look back someday
At this moment that we’re in
And I’ll look at you and say
And I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then

GREAT tab and great song by Brad...but man the F's killme...anybody know an easier way to do the F's???
-olvera06 | 3/26/2009
To be honest my computer kept freezing when I played the song so I just copied and pasted the last chorus :p Thanks for the word ammendment :D
-PhoenixMandolin | 3/27/2009
I know that I will receive hate-mail after this post, but I really don't care.
This song is uninspired, unoriginal, lowest-common-denominator, kiddie-fluff. Brad
has sunk to all-time low (I thought it couldn't get worse than the Keith Urban duet).

-WildCard76 | 3/28/2009
I fell that the story is one that's been done before, but Brad Paisley writes with such solidarity and simplicity, that it trumps the other like minded songs. Add the great music and you've got yourself a good song IMHO. It sure beats all that hillbilly, redneck, stuff like Alan Jackson (Country Boy and Good Time) Jason Aldeans latest (She's Country) and Toby Keith's plunge into worse and worse music every song he releases. My least favorite Brad Paisley song is Alcohol actually lol

Looking through songs you have tabbed, I dig your taste in music. Like you say your very anti-mainstream country, which I can get behind because sometimes it's baffling what makes it to the top of the charts.

Also, start a band capitalizes on the Rock band Guitar Hero craze going on right now. It's a very smart move if you ask me, though the lyrics do appeal to that on purpose and I'm not much for them. What I really love is the guitar from Brad and Keith Urban. I've always thought he was a slightly underrated guitar player who opts for the more ballady tear jerkers ;)

I've gone on way too long lol. I love discussing music too much :D
-PhoenixMandolin | 3/29/2009
nice work! hey, maybe try a couple of small changes.. instead of the G# or Gdim try G#/E on the chorus and on the bridge the chords are G F C x2 then Am b/G C F .....G

-markm172 | 5/16/2009
I think this song is great. If you are in love, or ever have been, this song should hit you where it hurts. It would bring a tear to a glass eye. I'm planning on singing this for my girl at our wedding as a surprise! I pray I can get through it w/out crying! lol wish me luck! Thanks for posting!!!

sounds pretty good, maybe try a capo in the first.
