[Verse 1]
E
Long were the nights
                                    Asus2
When the days once revolved around you
E
Counting my footsteps,
                             Asus2   
Prayin’ the floor won’t fall through, again
C#m                     Bsus2
My mother accused me of losing my mind
      Asus2
But I swore I was fine

[Verse 2]
E
You paint me a blue sky and go back
                Asus2
And turn it to rain
E
And I lived in your chess game
                                Asus2
But you changed the rules every day
C#m                       Bsus2
Wonderin which version of you
                   Asus2
I might get on the phone, tonight,
C#m
Well I stopped pickin’ up
         Bsus2                   Asus2
And this song is to let you know why

[Chorus]
      E
Dear John,
                            Bsus2
I see it all now that you’re gone.
                          C#m
Don’t you think I was too young

To be messed with
    Bsus2
The girl in the dress
           Asus2
Cried the whole way home

I shoulda known.

[Verse 3]
E
Well maybe it’s me
                         Asus2
And my blind optimism to blame
E 
Maybe its you and your sick need
                  Asus2       
To give love then take it away
    C#m
And you’ll add my name
        Bsus2
To your long list of traitors
    Asus2
Who don’t understand
              C#m
And I’ll look back in regret
      Bsus2
How I ignored when they said
       Asus2
Run as fast as you can

[Chorus]
      E
Dear John,
                            Bsus2
I see it all now that you’re gone.
                          C#m
Don’t you think I was too young

To be messed with
    Bsus2
The girl in the dress
           Asus2
Cried the whole way home

E
Dear John,
                        Bsus2
I see it all now it was wrong
                               C#m
Don’t you think nineteen’s too young
                     Bsus2
To be played by your dark twisted games
       Asus2
When I loved you so

I shoulda known
E

[Bridge]
           C#m
You are an expert at sorry
Bsus2
And keeping lines blurry
    Asus2
And never impressed by me

Acing your tests
        C#m
All the girls that you run dry
     Bsus2
Have tired lifeless eyes
        Asus2
Cuz you burned them out
    Bsus2
But I took your matches
  C#m             Bsus2
Before fire could catch me
   Asus2
So don’t look now
     C#m
I’m shining like fireworks
Bsus2                  E
Over your sad empty town

Oh woah oh
(E Bsus2 C#m Bsus2 Asus2)

[Chorus]
      E
Dear John,
                            Bsus2
I see it all now that you’re gone.
                          C#m
Don’t you think I was too young

To be messed with
    Bsus2
The girl in the dress
           Asus2
Cried the whole way home
E                           Bsus2
I see all it now that you’re gone
                          C#m
Don’t you think I was too young

To be messed with
   Bsus2
The girl in the dress
      Asus2
Wrote you a song
E
You should’ve known
Asus2
You shoulda known
E                         Asus2
Don’t you think I was too young

You shoulda known.
E
