Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
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!

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

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


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