Intro-D  G  D G 



D                                                      G  
Long were the nights when my days once revolved around you
D                                                G
Counting my footsteps praying the floor won't fall through again
        A                    D      A
And my mother accused me of losing my mind
G
But I swore I was fine

D                                                G
You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain
        D
And I lived in your chess game
                            G
But you changed the rules everyday
A                           D           A          G                       
Wondering which version of you I might get on the phone
Tonight
        A                            D          A            G
Well I stopped picking up and this song is to let you know why

      D                                 G
Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
                           Bm           
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with
A                                G        (STOP)  
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
            D
I should've known
G

      D                                     G      
Well maybe it's me and my blind optimism to blame
              D                                                 G 
Or maybe it's you and your sick need to give love then take it away
       A                        D            A              G  
And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand
              A                       D                A        
And I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said
        G
Run as fast as you can

      D                                 G
Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
                          BM            
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with 
      A                          G
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
      D                             G
Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong
                          BM                    
Don't you think 19's too young to be played by
      A                         G
Your dark twisted games when I loved you so
             D
I should've known

D  G

           BM             
You are an expert at sorry
     A                
And keeping lines blurry
G
Never impressed by me acing your tests
        BM           
All the girls that you've run dry
      A                  
Have tired, lifeless eyes
           G       
Cause you burned them out
       A                    D         A 
But I took your matches before fire could catch me
    G
So don't look now
     A                   
I'm shining like fireworks
G                    D
Over your sad empty town
  G      BM    A G

       D                                   G
Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
                          BM                    
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with
    A                             G 
The girl in the dress cried the whole way home  D
                              G
I see it all now that you're gone
                           BM                      
Don't you think I was too young to be messed with
    A                        G
The girl in the dress wrote you a song
               D
You should've known
               G
You should've known.................(D)
                           G
Don't you think I was too young
               D
You should've known
