Intro
Cadd9  G  Cadd9  G

Verse 1
    Cadd9                          G
I remember when you were only seventeen
             Cadd9                             G
You were the finest girl that my eyes had ever seen
                     Em                    C
I guess you found it hard to simply just ignore
                     Em                          C   D
This scruffy beat up working class teenage troubadour
      G                  D                         Em          C
So we fell in love and I toured your heart with my out of tune guitar
         G                  D                Em                C
You were wonderful you were mystical and the envy of all of my friends
           G          D             C                 G
Seems like only yesterday under the stars on Brighton Beach

Verse 2
          Cadd9                          G
Oh what a time it was what a time to be alive
         Cadd9                                      G
Remember Janice and Jimmy Kennedy and King how they cried
                  Em                C
I sang to you the songs of Ramblin' Jack
               Em                  C   D
You were Greta Garbo and I was Karolac
       G                     D                       Em         C
And we played so hard and we loved so hard seemed we never ever slept
          G                    D                    Em
They were crazy days they were wonderful days and I loved you with all of my
C
heart
           G          D             C                 G
Seems like only yesterday under the stars on Brighton Beach

Bridge
Em                            C
Your daddy had plans that did not include me
       Em                        C
And he won't stay away from your door
      Em                            C
And I dreamed how I dreamed I could steal you away
        Am              D
To some far off distant shore

Verse 3
     Cadd9                                 G
Then early one morning I awoke to find you gone
             Cadd9                                      G
You wrote 'I love you baby but it's time for me to move on'
                  Em                          C
And so my teenage heart laid scattered on the floor
                 Em                          C    D
I swear to God I could not have loved you anymore
         G                        D
And as I sit here tonight playing with my kids wondering
Em                    C
Where you are in this world
        G                     D                Em                       C
Did you find your man are you happy now do you ever stop and think about me
      G              D             C                 G
How I long for yesterday under the stars on Brighton Beach

A really good chord progression for beginner, play along with the song itself to get an idea of the strumming pattern, easy to sing along whilst playing. I think it a 12 string being used on the track itself. I am trying to work out the 'mandolin' sounding short solo pieces as these will sound pretty good on my 12 string. If someone beats me to it, please publish here. My thanks to Tony Coxill
