     A    C#m  D    E    Bm   F#m

A           C#m        D             A
Once upon a time, when I was in high school
A                        C#m          D            A
I was in love with you, lady and you treated me so cool.
A      C#m      D      A
I was drivin' a Chevy '72
A             C#m             D                   A
had 4 on the floor, girl, one hundred 20 it would do

E                  Bm                         A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', Let's Get It On...

A           C#m        D                    A
There was a war, baby, somewhere across the sea
A                     C#m                 D                   A
I didn't wanna go and fight, girl, but you were really lovin' me.

E                       Bm                          A
I remember Martin Luther King, lord he was the man, baby
that gave us all a dream.
E                       Bm                    A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', let's Get It On...
Don't play with my love no,
E                       Bm                    A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', Let's Get It On.

A          C#m        D            A
We used to have sweet music in the park
A          C#m           D                   A
Lord up at Monterey they sang throughout the dark
A           C#m        D         A
You used to wear girl, those hot pants
A                          C#m           D             A
When you strolled down the hall, all the boys wanted a chance...

E                 Bm                          A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin', Let's Get It On...
Don't play with my love, no...
E                 Bm                                A
I remember Otis Redding, Sittin' at the Dock of the Bay---
ahh, he went away..
E                 Bm                            A
I remember Sam Cooke ya'll, Bring It On Home To Me,
from your love I can't be free...
E                 Bm                         A
I remember Elvis Presley, and the Blue Suede Shoes
ahh it gave me the blues.
E                 Bm                           A
I remember Marvin Gaye, singin'...let's get it on

All references to C#m should be replaced with F#m.

No, C#m is correct. Not that it matters any, because the chords are exactly the same notes, but It's actually played with the chords transposed down a full step and capo on the second fret. For some people it might be easier to Sing in G instead of A, so it just makes it easier to transpose by taking the capo off. so the chords would be.
capo 2nd fret
A= G
C#m = Bm
D= C
E= D
Bm = Am
F#m = Em
