      THE BEST DAY     George Strait 
A                      D                    E                   A                         
We loaded up my old station wagon   With a tent a coleman and sleepin' bags
A                      D                     E             A          
Some fishin' poles a cooler of cokes Three days before we had to be back
              Bm                       E
When you're seven you're in seventh heaven 
                    A            
When you're going campin' in the wild outdoors 
        Bm                D                 Bm               E
As we turned off on that old dirt road He looked at me and swore

CHORUS:
 A         E            D             Bm     
Dad this could be the best day of my life
             E               D                         A   E
I've been dreamin' day and night about the fun we'll have
      A     F#m              D                Bm   
Just me and you doing what I've always wanted to
          D           Bm                E              A    1.) C# D E  2.) D 
I'm the luckiest boy alive this is the best day of my life.

       A                  D            E           A
His fifteenth birthday rolled around Classic cars were his thing
A                                D 
When I pulled in the drive with that old Vette
     E                   A                Bm
I thought that boy would go insane When you're in your teens
        E              A    
Your dreams revolve around four spinnin' wheels
            Bm                       D
We worked nights on end till it was new again
           Bm               E
And as he sat behind the wheel     go to chorus
   D                  Bm                   E                    A
Standin' in a little room in back of the church with our tux's on
  D               Bm            E             
Lookin' at him I say I can't believe son that you're grown
         A          E           D              Bm  
He said Dad, this could be the best day of my life
            E                D                   A   E
I've been dreamin' day and night of being like you
         A      F#m           D                 Bm     
Now it's me and her watchin' you and Mom I've learned
          D            Bm                E              A 
I'm the luckiest man alive, this is the best day of my life
          D           Bm                 E               A
I'm the luckiest man alive, this is the best day of my life.
