Intro
[A]  [E/A]    [A]  [E/A]    [A]  [E/A]                       
Verse 1

[A]If I could write a letter to [E/A]me and [A]send it back in time to [E/A]myself at 17

First I'd [D]prove it's me by saying look [A]under your bed

There's a [Bm]Skoal can and a Playboy no one [E]else would know you hid

And [A]then I'd say I know it's [E/A]tough when you [A]break up after seven [E/A]months

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

All [Bm]I can say is pain like that is [E]fast, and it's rare.

Chorus 1

And [A]oh, you [E/G#]got so much [F#m]going for you, [A]going right

But [D]I know at [A]17, it's [Bm]hard to see past [E]Friday night

[A]She wasn't [E/G#]right for you

And [F#m]still you feel like [A]there's a knife [D]sticking out of [A]your back

And you're [Bm]wondering if [E]you'll survive

[D]You'll make it [A]through this and you'll [Bm]see

[A]You're still [D]around to write this [E]letter to [A]me.       [E/A]

Verse 2

[A]At the stop sign at Tomlinson and [E/A]Eighth [A]always stop completely

[E/A]Don't just tap your brakes

And when you [D]get a date with Bridgett make [A/C#]sure the tank is full

On [Bm]second thought forget it that one [E]turns out kinda cool

[A]Each and every time you have a [E/A]fight

Just [A]assume you're wrong and dad is [E/A]right

And you should [D]really thank Ms. Brinkman she spent [A]so much extra time

It's like she [Bm]sees the diamond underneath

And she's [E]polishinÂ’ you 'til you shine

Chorus 2

And [A]oh, you [E/G#]got so much g[F#m]oing for you, [A]going right

But I [D]know at [A]17 it's [Bm]hard to see past [E]Friday night

[A]Tonight's the [E/G#]bonfire rally [F#m]but you're staying [A]home instead

Because [D]if you fail [A]algebra, [Bm]mom and dadÂ’ll [E]kill you dead

[D]Trust me you'll squeak [A]by and get a[Bm] C

[A]And you're still [D]around to write this [E]letter to [A]me

[A]You've got so much [E]up [A]ahead

You'll [D]make new [A]friends, you should [D]see [A/C#]your k[E]ids and [A]wife

Verse 3

[A]And I'd end by saying [E]have no [F#m]fear

These are [D]now[A/C#]here n[Bm]ear t[A]he b[G]est years [D]of your [E]life

I guess I'll [D]see you in the mirror

When [A/C#]you're a grown man

P[Bm].S. go hug Aunt Rita [E]every chance you can

Chorus 3

And [A]oh, you [E/G#]got so much g[F#m]oing for you, [A]going right

But [D]I know at [A]17, it's [Bm]hard to see past [E]Friday night

[A]I wish you'd [E/G#]study Spanish

[F#m]I wish you'd take a typing [A]class

[D]I wish you wouldn't [A]worry, let it [Bm]be

[A]Hey, I'd say [D]have a little [A/C#]faith, and you'll [Bm]see    [E]

If [A]I could write a letter to [E/A]me, to [A]me...      [E/A]        [A]
