You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
Its the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you aint seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybodys way
It’s your freshman year and you’re gonna be here
For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
You know I haven’t seen you around, before

‘Cause when you’re fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen
Feeling like there’s nothing to figure out
Well count to ten, take it in
This is life before you know who you’re gonna be
At fifteen


You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail
And soon enough you’re best friends
Laughing at the other girls who think they’re so cool
We’ll be out of here as soon as we can
And then you’re on your very first date
And he’s got a car and you’re feeling like flying
And you’re momma’s waiting up and you’re thinking he’s the one
And you’re dancing round your room when the night ends
When the night ends

Cause when you’re fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen
And your first kiss makes your head spin ’round
But in your life you’ll do things greater than
Dating the boy on the football team
But I didnt know it at fifteen


C9 Em7 D
When all you wanted was to be wanted
G D/F# C9 D
Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now

Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his mind and we both cried

  20. Hi GuitarTutee. Awesome tab here.. But this isn’t your tab. This tab belongs to a UGer & you have stolen their credit for it. They deserve the credit and not you. So just give them the benefit of the doubt… I mean, they put a lot of hard work into this.. & all you do is copy and paste it (Oh & Change it a little when you get a email off her? Thats pathetic). I mean, thats the lowest you can sink stealing someone else’s tab. Give them some credit at least or I will spread the bad word & I don’t bluff very much.

    P.S: I also believe you owe an apology to LeaveThePieces (aka. Krista) because she did posted this tab on 13/11/2008 & you posted on 11/02/09. So don’t say she copied you cos she damn well didn’t.

  21. Needs strum and the picking for the song can’t figure it out by myself yet.

  22. This probably isnt right but try doing the strumming pattern :

    down down up, down down down up

    It sounds almost right so ill use it for now.
