This is my first tab so give me a little grace. :) I haven't included any of the 
hammer-ons or pull-offs, if you're listening to the song though they're easy to pick up on.
Thanks!

G                                   D
I was only seventeen living out a reckless dream,
                C                               G
Riding those summer streets to the corner of High and 13
G                               D
Me and other city boys running too wild and too bored
                C                               G
Looking for a grown man's toys out at that corner store
C                               G               C       G       D
Well they threw the money to me and somebody's I.D.
G                         C
I was in the parking lot scared as hell
        Em                          G
Sending sixteen dollars down a wishing well
G                          C
Two bottles of wine, those red and blue lights
        Em                           G
Took a trip down town for the very first time
C                      G          C                G    D
Watching my own life flash before my eyes
               C                G
Like I was seventeen

                G                             D
She was from across the tracks with the private school laugh
                C                                     G
We were both falling too fast down a river that wouldn't last
          C     G             C         G               D
It was only one night and our first time
G                       C
I was in the parking lot scared as hell
        Em                          G
Sending sixteen dollars down a wishing well
G                       C
I held her tight between those yellow lines
        Em                          G
Sat there crying about a miscarried life
C                      G        C                  G    D
Watching my own life flash before my eyes
               C
Like I was seventeen


               G
Oh it was a lifetime ago
   C                            G
I pray for mercy walking on down that road
        D                               D
I met the woman of my dreams, she said yes to me
                C            G  C                G        C             G
And she said, "Baby I'm late, never this late. I'm feeling a change. We
D
Should find out either way."
        C               G               C               G
And I'm grabbing my keys and I'm shutting the front door
C               G               D
I can hardly breathe driving that familiar road
        C                       G
And I'm parked between those yellow lines
C                    G
Looking down that aisle
C                       G               D
Don't know whether to laugh or whether to cry
G                       C
I'm in the parking lot scared as hell
        Em                      G
Sending sixteen dollars down a wishing well
G                       C
Two pink lines or maybe just one
        Em                      G
Could be my daughter or it could be my son
C                    G     C                 G          D
Watching our own lives flash before my eyes
                C               G
Like I was seventeen
C                     G       C               G
Funny how the years switch around the tears that way
                C               G
Like I was seventeen
