Letter To Me

Brad Paisley

 GGmaj7
 If I could write a letter to me
 GGmaj7
And send it back in time to myself at 17
 CG/B
First I''d prove its me by saying look under your bed
 AmD
There''s a skoal can and a playboy no one else would know you hid
 GGmaj7
 And then I''d say I know it''s tough
 GGmaj7
When you break up after seven months
 CG/B
Yea I know you really liked her and it just don''t seem fair
 AmD
All I can say is pain like that is fast and it''s rare
 GD/F#EmG
And Oh you got so much going for you going right
 CG/BAmD
But I know at 17 it''s hard to see past Friday night
 GD/F#Em
 She wasn''t right for you and still you feel like
 GCG/B
 There''s a knife sticking out of your back
 AmD
And you''re wonderin if you''ll survive
 CG/BAm
But you''ll make it through this and you''ll see
 CDG
You''re still around to write this letter to me
 GGmaj7
At the stop sign at Tomlinson and 8th
 GGmaj7
 Always stop completely don''t just tap your brakes
 C
And when you get a date with Bridgette
 G/B
Make sure the tank is full
 AmD
On second thought forget it that one turns out kinda cool
 GGmaj7
 Each and every time you have a fight
 GGmaj7
Just assume you''re wrong and dad is right
 C
And you should really thank Mrs. Brinkman
 G/B
She spent so much extra time
 Am
It''s like she sees the diamond underneath
 D
And she''s polishing you til you shine
 GD/F#EmG
And Oh you got so much going for you going right
 CG/BAmD
But I know at 17 it''s hard to see past Friday night
 GD/F#
 Tonights the bonfire rally
 EmG
 But you''re staying home instead
 CG/BAmD
Because if you fail algebra mom and dad will kill you dead
 CG/BAm
But trust me you''ll squeak by and get a C
 CDG
And you''re still around to write this letter to me
 CG/BAmGDG
 You got  so much up ahead
 CG
You''ll make new friends
 CG/BDG
You should see your kids and wife
 CG/BAmGD
And I''d end by   saying have no fear
 CG/BAmGFC/ED
These are nowhere near the best years of your life
 C
I guess I''ll see you in the mirror
 G/B
When you''re a grown man
 AmD
P.S. go hug aunt Rita every chance you can
 GD/F#EmG
And Oh you got so much going for you going right
 CG/BAmD
But I know at 17 it''s hard to see past Friday night
 GD/F#
 I wish you''d study Spanish
 EmG
wish you''d take a typing class
 CG/BAm
wish you wouldn''t worry and let it be
 CG/BAmD
I''d say have a little faith and you''ll see   
 GGmaj7
If I could write a letter to me
 G
To me


Am C C/E D D/F# Em F G G/B Gmaj7
