Pretty simple song, just G power chord then A power chord for the verse.

G A
   Everything is the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is
   Everything is the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is

Then just add C and D power chords

G A
   Everything is the way it is
C D
   It's got to be like you say it is
G A
   I need a heartache, but it won't be long
C D 
   Till I get to where it's coming on
G A
   A little fame and I know it's true
C D
   You can feel it and it's coming for you
G A
   No matter how hard I've tried to stay
C D
   I feel you pulling me further away

Then just A, to G, to D for the chorus

A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo
A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo

G A
   Everything is the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is
   Everything's the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is

G A
   Staying young is a trivial game
C D
   You're gettin' older but you stay the same
G A
   You look good when you shaking my way
C D
   But let me think of something awful to say

A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo
A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo

(I find this part works well, although not in the recording, if you play the 
chords then palm mute eighth notes of the second chord)

G A A(palm muted)
   Everything is the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is
   Everything is the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is

G A A(palm muted)
   I step back take a total view
C D D(palm muted)
   I take a little, but it's hard to do
G A A(palm muted)
   But I'll call, I'll try to change
C D D(palm muted)
   It's better than to stay the same

A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo
A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo
A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo
A G D
     Hey hey hey
A G D
     Oo oo oo

G A
   Everything's the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is
   Everything's the way it is
   It's got to be the way it is

it's not a bad try, but you got somethings wrong.
I am sure it's played by powerchords only, and i think it's C G A in the bridge to the chorus.
but still not band thanks for trying
