[Intro] 
A9Em9 (2x)

[Verse 1]
    A9
I’ve these dreams I’m walking home
Em9
Home when it used to be
       A9
And ev-ery-thing is as it was
Em9
Frozen in front of me
   A9
Here I stand, six feet small
   Em9
Ro-man-ticizing years ago
               A9
But it’s a bit-ter-sweet feeling
                                           Em9
Hearing “Wrapped Around Your Finger” on the   radio

[Pre-Chorus]
    D7    A9
And these days
  D7         A9
I wish I was six again
                D7  A9
Oh, make me a red   cape
  D7       A9
I wanna be Su-perman

[Chorus]
Oh, if only my life
Am7/4              D9                   Am7/4   D9
     Was more like nine-teen eighty-three
               Am7/4
All these things    would be more
          D9                    Am7/4
Like they were at the start of me
          C         D      A9
Had it made  in eighty-three
Em9

[Verse 2]
      A9
Think-ing ‘bout my brother Ben
     Em9
I miss  him every day
       A9
He looks just like his brother John
          Em9
But on an eighteen-month delay
   A9
Here I stand, six feet small
    Em9
And smiling ‘cause I’m scared as hell
     A9 (tacet)
Kind of like my life is like a sequel to a movie
          Em9 (tacet)
Where the actors’ names have changed
Oh, well

[Pre-Chorus]
      D7    A9
Well, these days
  D7         A9
I wish I was six again
                D7  A9
Oh, make me a red   cape
  D7       A9
I wanna be Su-perman

[Chorus]
Oh, if only my life
Am7/4              D9                   Am7/4   D9
     Was more like nine-teen eighty-three
               Am7/4
All these things    would be more
          D9                    Am7/4   D9
Like they were at the start of me
         Am7/4              D9                 Am7/4   D9
If my life    was more like nineteen eighty-three
                Am7
I’d plot a course  to the source
       D9                     Am7   D9
Of the purest little part of me

[Verse 3]
C#m                   F#7          C#m
   And most my memories have escaped   me
                            F#7
Or confused themselves with dreams
B     Bm                  E7sus4         E7
   If hea-ven’s all we want     it to be
Send your prayers to me
                            C7
Care of nineteen eighty-three
D9Asus2- Am7
D9Am7D9
        Am7               D9
You can paint that house a rainbow of colors
  Am7                     D9                       Am7
Rip  out the floorboards, replace the shutters, but
          D9                Am7   D9
That’s my plastic in the dirt

[Outro]
Am7                     D9
   Whatever happened to my
Whatever happened to my
Am7                     D9
   Whatever happened to my lunchbox?
Am7              D9
   When came the day
           Am7          D9
That it got    thrown a-way
                  Am7
And don’t you think  I should have had
     D9               Am7    D9
Some say in that deci-sion?
             Am7   D9
If only my life
             Am7   D9
If only my life
If only my life…

Great job, just one correction: the chord you have listed as a D7 is actually a Dmaj7
