Okay, this is obviously very basic and sloppy, but I find it does the job simplistically
beginners, (such as me, a perpetual beginner) looking to just sing and play this song
fun. Besides, I did not see a tab for this song on this site, so I decided it was time
me to post my first ever tab to any website, since this is a great song.

Standard E: tuning

1st Verse (Riff)

How old are you she called to us
Fresh off the bus
to Washington DC
Blond hair and her friend's was black
With a blue backpack
and a plaid skirt to her knees

Chorus (D# G# C# same tempo, just strum'em) **Chords are the same for all choruses

She seemed so confident back then
French kissing boys into men
Vacation came to an end
Hey now Holly where you been?

2nd Verse (Riff)

You know we come here every year
How long you here
in Washington DC?
Just three days, I made her smile
and her girlfriend too
That was my best friends blues
and the tragedy of me

2nd Chorus

She seemed so confident back then
French kissing boys into men
Vacation came to an end
Hey now Michelle where you been?

Interlude (Chords G# D# C#/D# C#/D# G#7 C#)

                      G#                D#
'cause when I was thirteen it seemed to me
                 C#                D#
That there would always be another girl to meet
          C#                  D#
There was no rush and I would always blush
       G#7                            C#
And it felt so good to take it seriously


Interlude 2nd time through (Chords G# D# C#/D# C#/D# G#7

                          G#                    D#
'cause when I was thirteen I saw it on the screen
             C#                   D#
The way that I should be, another girl to meet
        C#                    D#
We were cleaner then and more innocent
        G#7                      C#     D#
There's nothing so unlucky about being,
                 C#
about being thirteen

3rd Verse

The day would always come
When we would have to say goodbye
Sometimes she would cry
and I would ached from all the pride
The last night we'd stay out late,
hold hands and curse fate,
We would try to slow down time

3rd Chorus

She seemed so confident back then
French kissing boys into men
Vacation came to an end
Hey now Christa where you been?

Outro Chorus

She seemed so confident back then
French kissing boys into men
I wish my vacation never had to end
Hey now baby where you been?

Final Outro

(She's so fine.) (She was mine)
Back then the girls were the shit


*******Hope this at least steered you in the right direction!
