This is how he plays it on the acoustic as near as I can tell.

Note:  
        The Asus2 basically starts as an Asus2 then a hammer on string 2, fret 2 
(C#)which makes it an A, but I wrote it as an Asus2 to differentiate it from the 
pure A chords.  Hope that makes sense
  

INTRO:   D  D/F#  G  -  G  G5/F#  D   x2

I was Roger Staubach in my backyard

Had a shoebox full of baseball cards
      G                                G5/F#    D

Farrah Fawcett hairdo days,  bell bottoms and 8 track tapes
D                Asus2        G          D 
Looking back now I can see me, oh man did I look cheesy
Em          Bm                  G                         (D)

We got our first microwave
G                                               D
Dad broke down and finally shaved them old sideburns off
           D               Dmaj7 
I took the stickers off my Rubik's Cube
        Bm       Asus2
Watched MTV all afternoon
G                                     G5/F#      D 
My first love was Daisy Duke in them cutoff jeans

Skating rinks and black Trans-Ams, big hair and parachute pants
D                Asus2        G          D 
Looking back now I can see me, oh man did I look cheesy
Em          Bm           G                                   (D)
I wouldn't trade those days for nothin' Aww, It was 1980-somethin'


D  D/F#  G  -  G  G5/F#  D

Now I got a mortgage and an SUV 
               Em                   G       
But all this responsibility makes me wish sometimes...
