[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]polishin? 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 dad?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]
