Letter To Me

Brad Paisley

 E/G#476454

Intro
 AE/AAE/AAE/A
Verse 1

 AE/AAE/A
 If I could write a letter to me and send it back in time to myself at 17

 DA
First I'd prove it's me by saying look under your bed

 BmE
There's a Skoal can and a Playboy no one else would know you hid

 AE/AAE/A
And then I'd say I know it's tough when you break up after seven months

 DA/C#
And yeah, I know you really liked her, and it just don't seem fair

 BmE
All I can say is pain like that is fast, and it's rare.

Chorus 1

 AE/G#F#mA
And oh, you got so much going for you, going right

 DABmE
But I know at 17, it's hard to see past Friday night

 AE/G#
 She wasn't right for you

 F#mADA
And still you feel like there's a knife sticking out of your back

 BmE
And you're wondering if you'll survive

 DABm
 You'll make it through this and you'll see

 ADEAE/A
 You're still around to write this letter to me.        

Verse 2

 AE/AA
 At the stop sign at Tomlinson and Eighth always stop completely

 E/A
 Don't just tap your brakes

 DA/C#
And when you get a date with Bridgett make sure the tank is full

 BmE
On second thought forget it that one turns out kinda cool

 AE/A
 Each and every time you have a fight

 AE/A
Just assume you're wrong and dad is right

 DA
And you should really thank Ms. Brinkman she spent so much extra time

 Bm
It's like she sees the diamond underneath

 E
And she's polishin' you 'til you shine

Chorus 2

 AE/G#F#mA
And oh, you got so much going for you, going right

 DABmE
But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night

 AE/G#F#mA
 Tonight's the bonfire rally but you're staying home instead

 DABmE
Because if you fail algebra, mom and dad'll kill you dead

 DABm
 Trust me you'll squeak by and get a C

 ADEA
 And you're still around to write this letter to me

 AEA
 You've got so much up ahead

 DADA/C#EA
You'll make new friends, you should see your kids and wife

Verse 3

 AEF#m
 And I'd end by saying have no fear

 DA/C#BmAGDE
These are nowhere near the best years of your life

 D
I guess I'll see you in the mirror

 A/C#
When you're a grown man

 BmE
P.S. go hug Aunt Rita every chance you can

Chorus 3

 AE/G#F#mA
And oh, you got so much going for you, going right

 DABmE
But I know at 17, it's hard to see past Friday night

 AE/G#
 I wish you'd study Spanish

 F#mA
 I wish you'd take a typing class

 DABm
 I wish you wouldn't worry, let it be

 ADA/C#BmE
 Hey, I'd say have a little faith, and you'll see     

 AE/AAE/AA
If I could write a letter to me, to me...
