Verse:
                D          A
Girl, I've been thinking a lot
      D                 D
About who we could have been
   A     D              A
If I was back home just chillin'
     D
with you and all my friends
D         A        Bm
    But dear I'm gone
    A                D
and that's the lousy truth

Verse:
D  A         D      
   For the past 3 years
  A          D       
I swear I've been a better man
D    A        D
than who I've become
  A               D           
I know, I know, I know I let you down
D     A        Bm
But I've been gone
    A        D
for too damn long

Chorus:
D E  A
  So if you go away right now,

then I can guarantee
             D       A     Bm
that I won't break your heart
 E    A
  But if you go and stay,

then baby I will hope and pray
               D    A       Bm
that you would run a  -  way
        A        D        A     Bm
Cause dear it breaks my   heart
   A       D
to see you here

Verse:
   A     D            A
So shine outward, not inward
              D
You've been a selfish little girl
    A   D
For the past 3 years
     A            D
I've been through more than you can know
      A      Bm    
and God I don't 
A           D
want you to know

D   A   D
What I have been through
      A        D             
cause you just wouldn't understand
       A      D              A
you're just a girl with some issues
   D
as bad as it might sound
D      A          Bm
But you're the girl
           A          D
who's been driving me mad

Chorus:
D E  A
  So if you go away right now,

then I can guarantee
             D       A     Bm
that I won't break your heart
 E    A
  But if you go and stay,

then baby I will hope and pray
               D    A       Bm
that you would run a  -  way
        A        D        A     Bm
Cause dear it breaks my   heart
   A       D      A   
to see you here
   Bm    D         A
So go to school in Chicago
       Bm         D
find a new boy, a new life,
  A
a whole new set of friends
               Bm         D         A
Cause all that I'll ever do is break your heart
            Bm              A
and dear it breaks my heart
           D     
to see you here
D       A        Bm              A
Yeah, dear it breaks my heart
           D
to see you here

        
But just so you know...
          D          A
I've been thinking a lot of
D                 D   
who we could have been
   A     D
if i was back home,
     A             D              
just chilling with you and all my friends
      A          Bm
But dear, I'm gone
    A                D
and that's the lousy truth.
