[Intro]

C  G  Am  F (x2)


[Verse 1]

          C                   G
There are days when I wake up
                      Am         F
I don't know what I'm doing here
         C             G                    Am                F
I barely recognize the pair of eyes staring back at me in the mirror


[Pre-Chorus]

                C 
But there was a day when I was free
      G
Not a care that I could see
                Am                    F
So good I could barely believe it was happening
           F         
Oh take me back again


[Chorus]

              C                 G
When I was sixteen with an open heart
        Am                F
Windows down in a beat up car
           C                      G
When I was dumb and the world was young
            Am         F
And she was beautiful
        C          G
She was beautiful
        Am         F
She was beautiful


[Verse 2]

          C                G
How do we end up like this
                           Am          F
Living lives that we don't care about
         C                   G                       Am                
Too busy fixing things on computer screens while the grass grows green me
    F
I'm screaming out


[Pre-Chorus]

            C   
There was a day that I was free
      G
Not a care that I could see
                Am                    F
So good I could barely believe it was happening
           F
Oh take me back again


[Chorus]

            C                 G
Oh I was sixteen with an open heart
        Am                F
Windows down in a beat up car
           C                      G
When I was dumb and the world was young
            Am         F
And she was beautiful
        C          G
She was beautiful
        Am         F
She was beautiful
        C          G
She was beautiful
        Am        F
She was beautiful  yeah yeah yeah


[Interlude]

C  G  Am  F


[Pre-Chorus]

                C 
But there was a day when I was free
      G
Not a care that I could see
                Am                    F
So good I could barely believe it was happening
           F         
Oh take me back again


[Chorus]

              C                 G
When I was sixteen with an open heart
        Am                F
Windows down in a beat up car
           C                      G
When I was dumb and the world was young
                  Am    F
And the world was young
        C          G
She was beautiful
        Am         F
She was beautiful
       C
It was you
       G
It was you
             Am       F
And you were beautiful yeah


[Chorus]

              C                 G
When I was sixteen with an open heart
        Am                F
Windows down in a beat up car
           C                      G
When I was dumb and the world was young
            Am          F       
And she was beautiful

End on C

I use DddD for each first measure and then ddDdu for the second measure (each chord is played for two measures). So it ends up being DddDddDdu DddDddDdu etc. And then I kinda just improvise a bit with more upstrokes in the chorus. Pretty simple, but it seems to go well with the original recording.
