ORDINARY PEOPLE   Clay Walker

D                              G             Em
I was standing in the checkout By a rack of magazines
A                     
Cover story told about another heart borke beauty queen
D                         G       
How she was getting over Just one more sad affair
Em                                         A               D
And as I waited for my change You know it hit me then and there that

CHORUS:
(D)         A          G            Em
Ordinary people have extraordinary love
(Em)                A 
A million little miracles far beneath the stars above
       D               A              G              Em
The greatest gift that I could ever wish for you and me
(Em)                             D
Is a life that's ordinary as can be


D                                       G       Em
Then I heard some famous people Had an anniver-sity
(Em)               A         
Five long years together  It was Hollywood history
D                            G                    Em  
Now my grandma and grandpa Never made no printed page
(Em)                                   A                   D                      
But they took the love of fifty-seven years right to the grave cause

go to chorus, lead
D                         G                        Em
Now we all like to watch and by the time the movie ends 
 A            
Who of us hasn't wished To be a little more like them
D                         G             
But I bet every time two stars are breaking up
Em                                              A              D
That they wished somehow someway they were a little more like us cause

got to chorus, to ending

ENDING:
       D               A              G              Em
The greatest gift that I could ever wish for you and me
(Em)                             D
Is a life that's ordinary as can be
