George would have __________ to class sooner, but a beautiful woman was listening to him lie about his fat wallet and hot car, and he couldn't tear himself away from the conversation.

The sentence requires the past participle of come, an irregular verb. Come is the past participle.

Verb Simple Present Simple Past Past Participle
come come(s) came come

Came, the form you chose, illegally combines the simple past with the auxiliary verbs would have. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
