Intro: Dm  F  C

Bb
Met a girl at seventeen
C
Thought she meant the world to me, 
Dm
So I gave her everything, 
C
She turned out to be a cheat
Bb                               C
Said she'd been thinking for a long time
                        Dm
And she found somebody new
                               C
I've been thinking that this whole time


                            Bb
Well I never thought you'd stay
        C
That's okay
            Dm
I hope he takes your filthy heart
              C
And then he throws you away someday
           Bb                C
Before you go, there's one thing you oughta know


Dm
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
Bb
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
Dm
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
Bb
If you can't hang then, there's the door


Dm             F
I don't wanna take your precious time
               Bb
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
         C
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
Dm              F
I don't wanna take up all your time
               Bb                   
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
          C
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time


Dm                 Bb
You're the lowest type
             G
You're the lowest


Bb
I met a girl stuck in her ways
C
She found a boy she knew she'd change
Dm
I changed my clothes, my hair, my face
C
To watch us go our separate ways
Bb
She said we've grown apart for sometime
C                             Dm
But then she found somebody new
                       C
I hope Mr. Right puts up with all the bullxxxx that you do


Bb               C
Stay the hell away, 
         Dm
While I sit here by myself
               C
And figure out how I got this way
            Bb               C
Before you go, there's one thing you oughta know


Dm
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
Bb
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
Dm
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
Bb
If you can't hang then, there's the door


Dm             F
I don't wanna take your precious time
               Bb
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
         C
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
Dm              F
I don't wanna take up all your time
               Bb                   
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
          C
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time


Dm                      Bb          G
   I don't want to get things confused
                Dm                           Bb         G
She said she'd never settle for some boy she couldn't use
           Dm       
So now I gotta call the doctor
             Bb            G
So he can prescribe me medication
          Dm                             Bb             G
So I can deal with all the memories of being here this way


Bb                       C
I met a girl at twenty-three
                            Dm
Knew she meant the world to me, 
                    C
So I gave her everything, 
                         Bb
And she did the same for me


         Dm             F
Imagine that! 
              Bb
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty face
           C
No you're such a pretty, pretty face
     Dm    F
Well, oh yeah... 
               Bb
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty face
            C
No you're such a pretty, pretty face


Dm             F
I don't wanna take your precious time
               Bb
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
         C
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
Dm              F
I don't wanna take up all your time
               Bb                   
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
          C
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time


Would you please stay and come inside, baby
Would you please stay and please be mine, baby
Would you please stay and come inside, baby
Would you please stay and please be mine?

    Anyone else think the C sounds a bit funny?

  2. anonymous

    Anyone know the strumming pattern?

  3. -5 is the easiest of them all

  4. -5 and +2 are the easiest for me

  5. -5 or +2 or the easiest for me but I prefer -5 slightly more than +2.
