Verse 1:
F       F             Dm
 Betty, I won’t make assumptions
      Csus4                Bb
About why you changed your homeroom
                          Csus4
But I think it’s cause of me
F       F              Dm
 Betty, one time I was riding
      Csus4             Bb
on my skateboard when I passed your house
                     Csus4
It’s like I couldn’t breathe
 
Pre-Chorus:
F             F            Dm
You heard the rumors from Inez
            Csus4            Bb
You can’t believe a word she says most times
                     Csus4
But this time it was true
    Dm          C       F   Bb
The worst thing that I ever did
    Dm     C      Bb    C
was what I did to you
 
Chorus:
              F                 F  
But if I just showed up at your party
          Dm                 C
Would you have me? Would you want me?
          Bb             Dm
Would you tell me to go xxxx myself
   C
Or lead me to the garden?
       F                F  
In the garden would you trust me
     Dm              C             Bb
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Dm           C
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
                  F
But I know I miss you

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

If I told you it was just a summer thing?
         Dm           C
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything

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

F       F                Dm
 Betty, I’m here on your doorstep
      Csus4              Bb
And I planned it out for weeks now
                         Csus4
But it’s finally sinking in
F       F                Dm
 Betty, right now is the last time
      Csus4            Bb
I can dream about what happens when
                Csus4
You see my face again
    Dm   C       F       Bb
The only thing I want to do
   Dm      C     Bb    C
Is make it up to you
     F                 F    Dm C Bb Am C
So I showed up at your party
        F                 F   Dm C Bb Am C
Yeah, I showed up at your party
 
Chorus:
     G                 G   
So I showed up at your party
         Em               D
Will you have me will you love me
         C              Bm
Will you kiss me on the porch
            Am              D
In front of all your stupid friends?
       G                G   
If you kiss me, will it be
            Em
just like I dreamed it
        D                 C
Will it patch your broken wings
         Bm          Am            D
I’m only seventeen, I don’t know anything
             G        D C
But I know I miss you
 
Outro:
Csus2             G        D C
 Standing in your cardigan
Csus2          G         D C
 Kissing in my car again
C
Stopped at a streetlight
            G        G    C
