Verse 1:
Bb       Bb             Gm
 Betty, I won’t make assumptions
      Fsus4                Eb
About why you changed your homeroom
                          Fsus4
But I think it’s cause of me
Bb       Bb              Gm
 Betty, one time I was riding
      Fsus4             Eb
on my skateboard when I passed your house
                     Fsus4
It’s like I couldn’t breathe
 
Pre-Chorus:
Bb             Bb            Gm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Fsus4            Eb
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Fsus4
But this time it was true
    Gm          F       Bb   Eb
The worst thing that I ever did
    Gm     F      Eb    F
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              Bb                 Bb  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Gm                 F
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          Eb             Gm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   F
Or lead me to the garden?
       Bb                Bb  
In the garden would you trust me
     Gm              F             Eb
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Gm           F
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  Bb
But I know I miss you

Bb       Bb               Gm
 Betty, I know where it all went wrong
     F                 Eb
Your favorite song was playing
                         F
from the far side of the gym
Bb      Bb             Gm
 I was nowhere to be found
           F
I hate the crowds you know that
Eb                          F
 Plus I saw you dance with him

Bridge:
Gm                    F
I was walking home on broken cobblestones
              Eb
Just thinking of you when she pulled up
       F
Like a figment of my worst intentions
Gm                            F
She said, "James get in let’s drive." Those days
            Eb
turned into nights, slept next to her
   F                           Bb
But I dreamt of you all summer long

And I planned it out for weeks now
                         Fsus4
But it’s finally sinking in
Bb       Bb                Gm
 Betty, right now is the last time
      Fsus4            Eb
I can dream about what happens when
                Fsus4
You see my face again
    Gm   F       Bb       Eb
The only thing I want to do
   Gm      F     Eb    F
Is make it up to you

In front of all your stupid friends?

If you kiss me, will it be
