High School


Transposer


             note: I prefer to strum along (D  DDU-next chord D), but most of the song 
has the same picking patern, so shouldn't be too difficult to pick up :)

Capo on 2nd fret

Intro:  F  C  Am  G/B

           F            C            Am          G/B  
He's still driving that 1970 hand-me-down truck
           F                              C            Am                   G/B  
And he's still wearing that red and black jersey, waiting for the band to start up
            F                       C              
He's still showing up twenty late, finding hearts and rules to break
Am                 G/B
Why would he wanna change when
F                 C  Am       G/B  
Every memory still bows to him?

               F           C             
But this ain't high school
      Am                          G/B                          F     
Where all you care about is if the pretty cheerleader thinks you're cool,
        C        Am                   G/B
See her Friday, take her out after the football game
             F         C              Am                   G/B  
'Cause it's five years later and you can't get off of the elevator
             F                 C         
That's going up, 'cause you're growing up
                    Am                   G/B         F          C   Am    G/B
And the world gets cruel when you're still living in high school

           F                        C                 Am          G/B  
He's still calling that first love, first time, pretty-eyed blonde
                F                          C              Am          G/B  
And she's still letting it ring 'cause his ring isn't what she wants
           F                   C                 Am                      G/B  
'Cause she traded in prom queen for a big city dream and a slate that's clean, but
F                                       C
Your heart just don't get it and that's why you can't forget it
             Am                        G/B
'Cause you're living like you're seventeen

               F           C             
But this ain't high school
      Am                          G/B                          F     
Where all you care about is if the pretty cheerleader thinks you're cool,
        C        Am                   G/B
See her Friday, take her out after the football game
             F         C              Am                   G/B  
'Cause it's five years later and you can't get off of the elevator
             F                 C         
That's going up, 'cause you're growing up
                    Am                   G/B         
And the world gets cruel when 

              Am           G/B              C                   G 
You're still living in the hallways, where everybody stopped and stared
                   Am
And cared and knew your name
G/B             C                              G
'Cause this is the real world that don't know you like that
        Am               G/B
You can remember but you can't go back

   F           C             
To high school
      Am                          G/B                          F     
Where all you care about is if the pretty cheerleader thinks you're cool,
        C        Am                   G/B
See her Friday, take her out after the football game
             F         C              Am                   G/B  
'Cause it's five years later and you can't get off of the elevator
             F                 C         
That's going up, 'cause you're growing up
                    Am                   G/B         F          C
And the world gets cruel when you're still living in high school
Am                   G/B         F             C      Am  G/B
       When you're still living in, five years later 

  F    C    Am   G/B
Oh yeah, oh yeaaaeehh
           F                         C                               Am                    
He's still calling that first love, first time, and he hates that he said goodbye
             G/B                          F                    C
And she went on with her life, he's still driving the same old back roads
                Am                    G/B
When did he got so old, where did his life go?
        F            C             Am        G/B
Oh, but he knows, oh he knows, yeah he knows
                F          C   Am   G/B
That this ain’t high school, oh no
           F              C               Am             G/B      F          C   Am  G/B
He's still driving that 1970 hand-me-down truck and he’s stuck in high school
               F           
But this ain’t high school
