(Intro) A# F A#
(1st Verse) It wasn't the books that I didn't read,
It wasn't the teachers that tried to teach me.
It wasn't that varsity baseball coach,
Kept on tellin' them locker room jokes, it was:
(Chorus) Bobby Ann Mason, back in high school.
She was way too cute, she was way too cool.
How was I gonna get an education,
Settin' right back of Bobby Ann Mason.
(Lead) A# F A#
(2nd Verse) Yeah! Bobby knew her hist'ry, Bobby knew her French,
Bobby knew how to keep the boys in suspense.
She'd tease with a touch, she'd tease with a kiss,
I was three long years being teased by, pretty Miss:
(3rd Verse) Yeah! Bobby graduated first in her class.
Me, I graduated closer to last.
Bobby went to college, she got a degree,
I got a guitar so I could sing about, me and:
(Lead) B F# B F# B
(4th Verse) Yeah! The years have taught me, the basics of math.

Back in high school, she was way too cute, she was way too cool.
I got most of my education settin' right back of Bobby Ann Mason.
F# B (STOP)
Settin right back of Bobby Ann Mason.
