Capo
4th fret
Basic strumming version that doesn't require a lot of bar chords. Use a simple
4/4 time strum pattern and it sounds pretty good.

Capo 4th

The first half of the verses and the chorus play exaclty the same as the intro.
For the second half of the verse play the Am and G each with 2 beats then 4 on
the F. 

Intro:
C F Am (3 beats) G (1 beat) F

Verse:
C                       F
when I was young I knew everything
    Am                         G    F
and she a punk who rarely ever took advice
        C                              F
now I'm guilt stricken sobbing with my head on the floor
Am                   G     F
stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice (no)

Am  G     F
          I can't be held responsible
Am  G           F
         'cause she was touching her face
Am  G     F
          I won't be held responsible
Am  G                F
          she fell in love in the first place

Chorus:
C                   F
for the life of me, I cannot remember
Am                     G       F                         C
what made us think that we were wise and we'd never compro-mise
                   F
for the life of me,  I cannot believe
     Am        G        F
we'd ever die for these sins we were merely freshmen

Bridge (each note is 2 beats):
Em F C G
G (hold 5 beats)

Verse:
C                            F
my best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
    Am                   G      F
his girl took a week's worth of valium and slept
             C                               F
and now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
Am                       G         F
thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he says...

Am  G     F
          I can't be held responsible
Am  G           F
         'cause she was touching her face
Am  G     F
          I won't be held responsible
Am  G                F
          she fell in love in the first place

Chorus:
C                   F
for the life of me, I cannot remember
Am                     G       F                         C
what made us think that we were wise and we'd never compro-mise
                   F
for the life of me,  I cannot believe
     Am                 G  F
we'd ever die for these sins we were merely freshmen

Bridge (sing 'Hey yeah!' bit over this):
Em F C G (x3) G (hold 5 beats)

Verse:
C                                F
we've tried to wash our hands of all of this
Am                     G     F
we never talk of our lacking relationships
              C                              F
and how we're guilt stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
Am                         G      F           
we fell through the ice, when we tried not to slip, we'd say it...

Am  G     F
          I can't be held responsible
Am  G           F
         'cause she was touching her face
Am  G     F
          I won't be held responsible
Am  G                F
          she fell in love in the first place

Chorus (play twice):
C                   F
for the life of me, I cannot remember
Am                     G       F                         C
what made us think that we were wise and we'd never compro-mise
                   F
for the life of me,  I cannot believe
     Am             G  F
we'd ever die for these sins we were merely freshmen

Outro: 
Em F C G (x3)
     We were mearly freshmen

G (hold and let it ring out)
