Intro:

C      F       C                F
If I'm just a slave to my high school days
C                F            G
Then when does a boy become a man
C           F         G             Am
They say at 16 I will get tough and mean
F                  C          G
College prep rally pep peachy keen
C              F   C                     F
And ill meet a gal and take her to the prom
        C            F               G
And maybe we'll make out by the old viewpoint
      Am           C            Am             C
But, there are no gals, no pep rallies, good pals
F                              G    C G C
C
Stay away from these high school

Verse:
C                        F
My teacher says that I'm brilliant
G                     C   Em
My mother says I'm a star
Am                        F
My girlfriend just avoids me
F   E  F     E     F   E   
 E   F  E
But I still pay for the dinner and the movie
C                       F
My room is filled with abandon
G                       C        Em
My homework is yet left undone
Am                  F
I look at pictures of myself
F   E  F     E     F   E   
 E   F  E
As a small child all filled with hope and so alive but

Chorus:

C                     F
Oh, these high school days
                C                     G
Take that away, take me away, take me away
C               F                  C               G
Stress and hard duress replace the hope I had everyday
C                     F
All these high school days
          C             G
Take that away, take myself away
Am                              F
If only I could skip forward or back
F   E  F     E     F   E    F E  F  E            Am    F
The best years of my life oh my god I hope not lets go
C                G
I hope not lets go

Verse: (Use above chords)
My friends are overachievers
My love is burning my down
My left nut has this crazy itch during homeroom
oh god that girl just saw me scratch my
all control is now spiraling
my grades look pretty damn low
I want to motivate myself,
but how the hell am I supposed to work I do not

Chorus:

C                      F
Love these high school days
          C      G
Take that away, take me away, take me away
C               F                  C          G
Stress and hard duress replace the hope I had everyday
 C                     F
All these high school days
C                         G
Take that away, I take myself away
Am                              F
If only I could skip forward or back
F             E      F   E   F   
   F   E   F   E               Am      F
The best years of my life oh my god I hope not lets go
                 C                    G
I hope not lets go
C                        F  C              F
So listen young boys to the words that I speak
C             F            G
Heed then and hold them to stay
C         F         C        Am
Never let go of the cowboy inside
F                    G             C
Or he'll die in your high school days

Yeah I saw this tab on ultimate-guitar, it's right except this little tiny fill towards the beginning, which simply goes:

e|--3--0--
B|---------
G|---------

Almost not even worth adding, but i'm OCD so it's all good.

@Youhelpthem when I'm playing it i'll have my F like so :

E --1--------------------
b --1--------------------
g --2--------------------
d --3--------------------
a --3--------------------
e --1--------------------

Yeah, so obviously you're ring finger is on the a string. Middle on the d string, and pinkie on the g string. So I just take off my index finger slide down one fret and play the e chord with the other three. Other than the norm with the index? Message me if you don't get me :)
