(D/*?, mfb Garth Brooks: by Brooks,Bastian,Alger) disclaimer

Verse 1
D                         G
Just the other night at a hometown football game
D                      Em7                 A
my wife and I ran into my old high school  flame.
G        Fm              Bm            Fm      G
And as I  introduced them the past came back to  me
D     Em                D            G                  A
and I  couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

Verse 2
D                      G
She was the one that I  wanted for all times 
D                                   Em7                 A
and each night I spent praying that  God would make her  mine.
G           Fm            Bm            Fm          G
And if He'd only grant me  this wish I'd wished back then
D   Em            D          G     A
I'd  never ask for anything  a-gain.

A                 D       G          Em     A 
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers.
  D      A           Bm      A      Em    A
Remember when you're talking to the man upstairs
            D                D7             G             E7 
that just because He doesn't answer doesn't mean He don't care
               D              A Bm7 Em7       A        D 
'cause some of God's greatest gifts    [are unanswered prayers.]
(Last Time to Ending)
Verse 3
D                          G
She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
D                                         Em7                 A
and I could tell that time had changed me in her eyes, too it seemed.
            G              f                  Bm      Fm       G
We tried to talk about the old day. It wasn't much we could re-call 
D           Em                   D            G    A
I guess the Lord knows what'he's doin' after  all.

    G                        Fm           Bm 
And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
             Em                  D                 G           A
And then and there I thanked the good Lord for the gifts in my life
(to Chorus)
... are unanswered. 
        D              A     Bm7         Em7     A7 
Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered,
        D              A    Bm7 Em7      A        D
Some of God's greatest gifts       are unanswered prayers
