G    A       D          G          A
Grew up on a tightrope, learned to smile
     D
Even when I was falling down
G           A             D
Daddy had a hard hand and Mama always had hope
    G                         A           D
And me and my sister couldn't wait to get out
G       A           D
Fell in love out of college
G    A           D
Good man for the bad year
G          A              D      
Visions of sugarplums and boxes of roses
G                                  A     D
All my girlfriends cried and I was outta here


G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, but everybody's just getting by
G             A       D
That's how it goes in everyday America
G                   A         D      D  G  A  D
A little town and a great big life


G    A           D
Joey stares at a trophy
G       A              D
Took us all the way to state back in '85
G         A            D
A shining moment and a dusty reminder
G                                 A       D
He never felt so scared, he never felt so alive
G            A           D
We found his toys in the backyard
G       A               D
Daddy's boys, yeah, you know how they like to fight
G         A         D
When they sleep, he swears they're angels
G                                     A      D
He wouldn't trade a day for all those Friday nights


G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, but everybody's just getting by
G             A       D
That's how it goes in everyday America
G                   A         D
A little town and a great big life



D G              A D   
    We can laugh,   we can cry
D G                A
    We're all just looking for the reasons why
D G                   A D
    In a place of dark   can we see the light
    G                  A
    Either way it'll be alright

G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, but everybody's just getting by
G             A       D
That's how it goes in everyday America
G                   A         D
A little town and a great big life


G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
G     A     D
Oooh, whoa, but everybody's just getting by
G             A       D
That's how it goes in everyday America
G                   A         D
A little town and a great big life
G                   A         D
A little town and a great big life
G                   A         D
A little town and a great big life

The chord progression for majority of the verse and chorus is G-A-D-Bm, I think. When I was playing along and it sounded like a chord was missing, I added Bm after D and it seemed to fit.
