(capo 2nd fret) G Em C D
"The Best Day"

G                   C
We loaded up my old stationwagon
       D                  G
With a tent a coleman and sleepin' bags
                     C
Some fishin' poles a cooler of cokes
      D              G
Three days before we had to be back
            Am                      D
When you're seven you're in seventh heaven
                  G
When you're going campin' in the wild outdoors
      Am                 C
As we turned off on that old dirt road
    Am              D
He looked at me and swore…

(chorus)

G         D           C               Am
Dad, this could be the best day of my life
          D                C                        G     D
I've been dreamin' day and night about the fun we'll have
     G      Em             C                  Am
Just me and you doing what I've always wanted to
        C            Am                D              G
I'm the luckiest boy alive this is the best day of my life.

G                      C
His fifteenth birthday rolled around
D             G
Classic cars were his thing
                                C
When I pulled in the drive with that old Vette
  D                      G
I thought that boy would go insane
     Am
When you're in your teens
     D              G
Your dreams revolve around four spinnin' wheels
          Am                        C
We worked nights on end till it was new again
          Am             D
And as he sat behind the wheel…

(repeat chorus)
C                    Am                  D                     G
Standin' in a little room in back of the church with our tux's on
C                Am           D
Lookin' at him I say, I can't believe son that you're grown…

(chorus)
        G         D            C              Am
He said Dad, this could be the best day of my life
          D                C                   G    D
I've been dreamin' day and night of being like you
         G      Em           C                 Am
Now it's me and her watchin' you and Mom I've learned
         C           Am                 D              G
I'm the luckiest man alive, this is the best day of my life
         C           Am                 D              G
I'm the luckiest man alive, this is the best day of my life.
