Intro- x2 -: Am G C F    F   C   G       G  

Verse:
Am  G           C     F  
Way back on the radio dial
  F        C      G            G  
A fire got lit inside a   bright eyed child
Am    G         C                   F  
Every note just wrapped around your soul
     F            C            G            G  
From steel guitar to Memphis all the   way to rock and roll

Chorus:
F      C      Am             G
Whoa oah I can hear 'em saying
F              C            Am              G
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
F      C      Am             G
Woah oah I can hear 'em saying
F       C             G                 C
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Verse:
Am  G    C               F  
Downtown where I used to wander
F          C              G            G  
Old enough to get there but too young to get inside
Am G    C                F  
I would stand out on the sidewalk
F         C           G          G   
Listen to the music playing every Friday night

Chorus:
F       C    Am             G
Whoa oah I can hear 'em playing
F              C            Am              G
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
F       C    Am             G
Woah oah I can hear 'em saying
F       C             C                 G
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Verse:
Am   G      C                F  
Some dreams stay with you forever
F         C           G              G  
Drag you around and lead you   back to where you were
Am   G      C               F  
Some dreams keep on getting better
F           C           G          G  
Got to keep believing if you   want to know for sure

Chorus- x2 -:
F      C     Am             G
Whoa oah I can hear 'em saying
F              C            Am              G
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
F      C     Am             G
Woah oah I can hear 'em saying
F       C             C                 G
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

    in the first line of the chorus it has the change to Am over the “can hear” but it’s actually pretty much right after the C; you change chords as you’re singing “I”.
