Letter To Me  Brad Paisley

[G]If I could write a letter to [Gmaj7]me
And [G]send it back in time to [Gmaj7]myself at 17
First I''d[C] prove its me by saying[G/B] look under your bed
There''s a[Am] skoal can and a playboy no one[D] else would know you hid
[G]And then I''d say I know it''[Gmaj7]s tough
When you [G]break up after seven [Gmaj7]months
Yea I [C]know you really liked her and [G/B]it just don''t seem fair
All [Am]I can say is pain like that is [D]fast and it''s rare
And [G]Oh you [D/F#]got so much [Em]going for you[G] going right
But [C]I know at [G/B]17 it''[Am]s hard to see pas[D]t Friday night
[G]She wasn''t[D/F#] right for you and[Em] still you feel like
[G]There''s a knife[C] sticking out of[G/B] your back
And you''re[Am] wonderin if[D] you''ll survive
But [C]you''ll make it[G/B] through this and you''[Am]ll see
You''re still[C] around to write this[D] letter to[G] me
At the [G]stop sign at Tomlinson and [Gmaj7]8th
[G]Always stop completely [Gmaj7]don''t just tap your brakes
And when you [C]get a date with Bridgette
Make [G/B]sure the tank is full
On [Am]second thought forget it that one [D]turns out kinda cool
[G]Each and every time you have a [Gmaj7]fight
Just [G]assume you''re wrong and dad is[Gmaj7] right
And you should [C]really thank Mrs. Brinkman
She spent [G/B]so much extra time
It''s like[Am] she sees the diamond underneath
And she''s[D] polishing you til you shine
And [G]Oh you [D/F#]got so much [Em]going for you[G] going right
But [C]I know at [G/B]17 it''[Am]s hard to see pas[D]t Friday night
[G]Tonights the [D/F#]bonfire rally
[Em]But you''re stayin[G]g home instead
Be[C]cause if you fail [G/B]algebra[Am] mom and dad will[D] kill you dead
But [C]trust me you''ll squeak[G/B] by and get [Am]a C
And you''re still[C] around to write this[D] letter to[G] me
[C]You [G/B]got [Am] so[G] much[D] up [G]ahead
You''ll[C] make new[G] friends
You should [C]see [G/B]your[D] kids and[G] wife
And I''d[C] end[G/B] by [Am]  s[G]ayin[D]g have no fear
These are [C]now[G/B]here[Am] near[G] the[F] best years[C/E] of you[D]r life
I guess I''ll[C] see you in the mirror
When [G/B]you''re a grown man
P.[Am]S. go hug aunt Rita [D]every chance you can
And [G]Oh you [D/F#]got so much [Em]going for you[G] going right
But [C]I know at [G/B]17 it''[Am]s hard to see pas[D]t Friday night
[G]I wish you''d[D/F#] study Spanish
I [Em]wish you''d take [G]a typing class
I [C]wish you wouldn''t[G/B] worry and let i[Am]t be
I''d say[C] have a little[G/B] faith and you''[Am]ll see  [D]
If [G]I could write a letter to [Gmaj7]me
To [G]me
