Note: I see on other tabbers think that second G is a C.
But on the recording it stays a G.  n.c. means play no chord

He said I was in my early forties with a lot of life before me
         Em                D              C
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime 
        G                           G
And I spent most of the next days looking at the x-rays
  Em               D            C                      
Talking bout the options  and talking bout sweet time
Em                                E2       
    I asked him when it sank in  that this might really be the real end
          E3                              Em  n.c.
How's it hit you when you get that kinda news man what'd you do
Em Em Em Em Em   n.c.
         he said I went

CHORUS:
      G             G    
Sky diving I went Rocky Mountain climbing
       Em                 D          C  
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Blue-Manchew

And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
       Em        D                   C
And I gave forgiveness I'd been de-nying
             (play 0 the word chance)

        G                                G  
He said I was finally the husband that most the time I wasn't
        Em                D                   C      
And I became a friend a friend would like to have
              G                           G 
And all the sudden going fishing wasn't such an imposition
            Em                D             C 
And I went three times that year I lost my dad
         Em                               E2
Well I finally read the good book  and I took a good long hard look
            E3                       Em             Em Em Em Em Em
At what I'd do if I could do it all again  and then

to chorus using 2.), to bridge, to Key change chorus

BRIDGE:
(Em)        E2                              E3
    Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
           Em                       D   
What'd you do with it what did you do with it
            C                     G 
What did I do with it  what would I do with it
