Seventeen ain't old enough to reason with the pain 
D                              Am 
How could we expect the two to stay in love, 
                      Em

Am                            Em 
All these expectations giving way to one 
                   D 
So late to have a baby on the way 

C9                      G 
You were riding on your mother's hip 
                         D    Dsus4 D Dsus2 D 
She was shorter than the corn

Just by being born
