[Verse]

  B                           E   
Bite your face to spite your nose
 B                   E
17 and a half years old
    B                 E
I'm worrying about my brother finding out
            B                        E
Where's the fun in doing what you're told?

        B
I said "No!
F#                   E
Oh give it a rest, I could persuade you
             B                    F#
I'm not your typical, stoned 18 year old
           E
Give me a night I'll make you.
               B                           F#
I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age,
              E
But girl I'm not your saviour"
B               F#
Wrestle to the ground
    E
God help me now


[Chorus]

B, F#, E (in between the F# and E, you can slide from the fourth fret to 
the sixth, on the D-string, like they do in the song)- repeat throughout 

B              F#                E
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
B              F#                E
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
B              F#                E
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
B              F#                E
They're just girls
B              F#                E
They're just girls


[Verse]

  B                       E
A pair of frozen hands to hold,
             B                        E
Oh she's so southern so she feels the cold,
                 B                
One moment I was tearing off your blouse,
           E
Now you're living in my house.
     B                        E
What happened to just messing around?

       B            F#           E
I said "Yo, I think I better go; I can't take you.
         B                       F#                    E
You just sit and get stoned with 30 year olds and you think you've made it.
      B                             F#                            E
Well, shouldn't you be fucking with somebody your age instead of making changes?"
B               F#
Wrestle to the ground
E
God help me now

                  
[Chorus]

B              F#                E
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
B              F#                E
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
B              F#                E
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
B              F#                E
They're just girls
B              F#                E
They're just girls


[Verse]

    E (x2)                 B F#
I told her from the start
    E (x2)                 B F#
Destined to be hard
    E (x2)                
I told her from the start
     B          F#
I'll break your heart
     E (x2)                
Destined to be hard
 B         F#   
Break your heart

        B     F#                     E
I said "Yo, I think you'd better go; I can't take you.
               B                           F#
I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age,
             E
But girl I'm not your saviour.
         B                              F#                        E
Well, shouldn't you be fucking with somebody your age instead of making changes?"
B               F#
Wrestle to the ground
     E
God help me now


[Chorus]

(Chorus progression as before: B, F#, E, with the slide)

B              F#                E
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
B              F#                E
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
B              F#                E
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
B              F#                E
They're just girls
B              F#                E
They're just girls

B              F#                E
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
B              F#                E
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
B              F#                E
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
B              F#                E
They're just girls
B              F#                E
They're just girls

B              F#                E
Cause they're just girls...
B              F#                E
Just girls, they're just girls...

Also C,C/G and Am work well through the song with no capo.

capo on second and A, E and D sound great too - makes it easy to play acoustically and simpler.

transpose -4, put capo on fourth fret, play with G, Cadd9, and Dsus4 for acoustic
