Verse:
    Db
She told me that she loved me by the water fountain
    Bbm
She told me that she loved me and she didn't love him
    Ab
And that was really lovely cause it was innocent
    Eb
But now she's got a cup with something else in it
     Db
It's getting kind of blurry at a quarter past ten
    Bbm
And he was in a hurry to be touching her skin
      Ab
She's feeling kind of dirty when she's dancing with him
   Eb
Forgetting what she told me by the water fountain

Pre-Chorus:
         Db
Now he's grabbing her hips and pulling her in
Bbm
Kissing her lips and whispering in her
Ab
Ear and she knows that she shouldn't listen
    Eb
And that she should be with me by the water fountain

Chorus:
    Db
She couldn't be at home in the nighttime because
  Bbm
It made her feel alone but at that time she was
    Ab
Too young
          Eb
I was too young
  Db
I should have built a home with a fountain for us
    Bbm
The moment that she told me that she was in love
    Ab
Too young
          Eb
I was too young
    Db
Too young
    Bbm
Too young
    Ab
Too young
Eb
Young

Verse:
    Db
And if she ever goes back to the water fountain
    Bbm
The handle will be broken and the rust set in
       Ab
But my hand it will be open and I'll try to fix it
   Eb
My heart it will be open and I'll try to give it

Pre-Chorus:
         Db
Now I'm grabbing her hips and pulling her in
Bbm
Kissing her lips and whispering in her
Ab
Ear and I know that it's only a wish
    Eb
And that we're not standing by the water fountain
    Db
Too young
    Bbm
Too young
    Ab
Too young
Eb
Young

Chorus:
    Db
She couldn't be at home in the nighttime because
  Bbm
It made her feel alone but at that time she was
    Ab
Too young
          Eb
I was too young
  Db
I should have built a home with a fountain for us
    Bbm
The moment that she told me that she was in love
    Ab
Too young
          Eb
I was too young
    Db
Too young
    Bbm
Too young
    Ab
Too young
Eb
Young
  Db
I should have built a home with a fountain for us
    Bbm
The moment that she told me that she was in love
    Ab
Too young
          Eb
I was too young

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
