Intro:
B Gb E x4
Dbm E

Verse 1:
B                  E
I say, here stand I
B  Gb        E
I can't do otherwise
Dbm       E
But is it enough?
Dbm                    E
And why'd you look so tough?
B       Gb      E
Back at Patrick Park
B     Gb          E
We stood in the dark
Dbm                  E
In my beer-stained mind
Dbm                       E
I said "please won't you be mine?"

Chorus:
B          Gb        E                Dbm E
There's something dark hangin' over my head
B      Gb    E                    Dbm E
I'm seventeen, don't hold your breath
B          Gb        E                Dbm E
There's something dark hangin' over my head
B      Gb    E                    Dbm E
I'm seventeen, don't hold your breath

Verse 2:
B       Gb          E
On the high school lot
B       Gb          E
You'd kiss me so long
Dbm                E
But lessons don't last
Dbm                      E
When I'm playing you so fast

Chorus:
B          Gb        E                Dbm E
There's something dark hangin' over my head
B      Gb    E                    Dbm E
I'm seventeen, don't hold your breath
B          Gb        E                Dbm E
There's something dark hangin' over my head
B      Gb    E                    Dbm E
I'm seventeen, don't hold your breatH

Verse 3:
B           Gb   E
Punch and first collapse
B         Gb        E
Drunk at winter dance
Dbm            E
Looks in red dress
Dbm
Oh, what an awful mess

Chorus:
B          Gb        E                Dbm E
There's something dark hangin' over my head
B      Gb    E                    Dbm E
I'm seventeen, don't hold your breath
B          Gb        E                Dbm E
There's something dark hangin' over my head
B      Gb    E                    Dbm E
I'm seventeen, don't hold your breath
