This is all by ear so if you have any corrections, please let me know.
There are small accents and other bits but I'm just including the major chord
changes here. I used the Live recording as the basis for this "cheat sheet" I'm
using for my cover band. Enjoy! T

Intro/Outro: C  A  G  
Verse:       G  C  C  G  Em  C  
Chorus:      G  D  G  (2x)
Solo:        D  C  D  C
 
          G                          C  
Well your acting like a prima donna, playing so hard to get
C                  G           Em                    C              
Acting so cool and nonchalant, dragging on a cigarette
You keep a wall all around ya, I'll get through some day
I want your love baby push come to shove
Gonna chip that stone away

      G        
Chip away - Chip away at the stone
D                                         G
I won't stop until your love is my very own
Chip away - That's what I'm gonna do
Sweet little mama I wanna get next to you

Well you stand like a marble statue, trying to look so hard
All decked out in your antique dress while the boys all promenade
Even a rock will crumble if you strike it night and day
If hammer I must, I'm gonna get through your crust
Gonna chip that stone away

Chip away - Chip away at the stone
And I won't stop until your love is my very own
Chip away - That's what I'm gonna do
Sweet little mama I wanna get next to you

{For solo just play D to C 2x --- listen to the recording.}

{Chorus}

C             A             G
I won’t stop, I won’t stop, I won’t stop, etc…

C-A-G to end.

Nice. I like the sound of C chord at the end of the first line in the chorus personally but this sounds good.

You can strum along with this, but if you want to get into it proper you've got use either barre chords or power chords. You simply can't do the boogie woogie stuff in the chorus without it.
