 [VERSE ONE]
  E
 Long were the nights
                                     A 
 When my days once revolved around you
   E 
 Counting my footsteps
                           A 
 Prayin' the floor won't fall through again

           B                  C#m          B 
 And my mother accused me of losin' my mind
        A 
 But I swore I was fine

        E 
 You paint me a blue sky
   E                        A 
 Then go back to turn it to rain
        E
 And I lived in your chess game
                                 A 
 But you change the rules every day
   B                        C#m
 Wonderin' which version of you
           B           A 
 I might get on the phone tonight
          B 
 Well, I stopped pickin' up
           C#m         B             A 
 And this song is to let you know why

         E                                A
 Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
                            C#m 
 Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
         B                          A 
 The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
              E A E A 
 I shoulda known
 
 [VERSE TWO]
        E                                      A
 Well, maybe it's me and my blind optimism to blame
                E
 Or maybe it's you and your sick need
                           A 
 To give love and take it away
       B                          C#m              B 
 And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors
       A 
 Who don't understand
                 B                      C#m                 B
 And I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said
           A 
 "Run as fast as you can"

 Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone
                            C#m 
 Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
         B                          A 
 The girl in the dress cried the whole way home
       E                                A
 Dear John, I see it all now, it was wrong
  A                              C#m
 Don't you think nineteen's too young to be played by
       B                          A 
 Your dark, twisted games when I loved you so?
               E
 I shoulda known

 [BRIDGE]
               C#m                     B 
 You are an expert at "Sorry" and keepin' lines blurry
  A 
 Never impressed by me acing your tests
          C#m                          B 
 All the girls that you run dry have tired, lifeless eyes
             A 
 'Cause you burned them out
     B                      C#m               B
 But I took your matches before fire could catch me
       A
 So don't look now
       B                     A                   E A
 I'm shining like fireworks over your sad, empty town
  C#m B A
 Oh
 
 [CHORUS]

 Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

 Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
       B                           A           E 
 The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

 I see it all now that you're gone

 Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?
       B                      A 
 The girl in the dress wrote you a song
              E 
 You shoulda known

 [OUTRO]
               A  E
 You shoulda known
                             A 
 Don't you think I was too young?
                   E 
 You shoulda known
