Intro: G D A D x2
 

G           D
 Got caught running up a tab
A                        D
Couldn't drive home so I had to share a cab
G                  D       
Introduced herself by her last name
    A                               D
The kind of girl you steal from the football team
G             D       
 Brought up a silver spoon mess
A                             D
Always trying to tear off her Catholic dress
G              D
 Told me she's over this place
A                          D
Needs to feel the mid west wind in her face
        Bm                   G
But the alcohol made its way down
            A
She was the last thing that I saw last night before I hit the ground


- Pause -          G                  D
Oh god I did the wrong thing to the right girl
   A             Bm
My mind was only in it for a minute
      G                D
Had a bad fling with a good girl
      A                   Bm
I was stupid and dumb not giving a
    G                   D
The blank stare out the window
           A                     Bm
If I could just sober up I could just admit
          G                  D
I did the wrong thing to the right girl
            A                                  G  D
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
       A                      Bm
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it


G                   D              
I've never been the best with my mouth
A                         D
Try to stay smart but the dumb comes out
G                D
Maybe I'm shy, I drive an old car
A                       D
Maybe I'm amazed that I got this far
      Bm                              G
And I got my stand-bys waiting on the line
        A
But the hardest part is knowing that it won't be her this time


- Pause -          G                  D
Oh god I did the wrong thing to the right girl
   A             Bm
My mind was only in it for a minute
      G                D
Had a bad fling with a good girl
      A               Bm
I was stupid and dumb not giving a
    G                   D
The blank stare out the window
           A                     Bm
If I could just sober up I could just admit
          G                  D
I did the wrong thing to the right girl
       A                                       G  D
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
       A                      Bm
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it


G               D
Please, please, baby come back
A               D
Please, please, baby come back
G               D
Please, please, baby come back
A               D
Please, please, baby come back


         G
She came back
                   D
Thought she had it all planned out
        A                      D
Went to marry some guy she had talked about
  G                       D
A tear in her dress and a tear in her eye
    A                        D
And just like that her whole life flashed by
             Bm                                G
She said She won't remember what you said last night
            A
That if you ever need someone to pick up the pieces in your life


- Pause -          G                  D
Oh god I did the wrong thing to the right girl
   A             Bm
My mind was only in it for a minute
      G                D
Had a bad fling with a good girl
      A               Bm
I was stupid and dumb not giving a
    G                   D
The blank stare out the window
           A                     Bm
If I could just sober up I could just admit
          G                  D
I did the wrong thing to the right girl
       A                                       G  D
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
       A                      Bm
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it


- keep playing G A D Bm -
Oh, it was your world
All yours
- Please, please baby come back -x4- -
Yeah it was your world baby and I just lived in it

  1. Don’t understand what they were thinking when they wrote that ending. It’s a whole lot easier to just do “Please, please baby come back” 4x with G D A D G D A (hold A)
