This is a song from the movie Cars. An amazing song. There are two versions of chords on
this site already,
but by my opinion they are not fully correct. So I tried it on piano and looked for the
correct chords.
Here they are.

James Taylor - Our Town

D - G/D - D - G/D - A7 - D - G/D
D - G/D - D - G/D - Bbdim - Gm/A - D - G/D - A/D - G/D

  D        A                D
Long ago, but not so very long ago
      G           A           D
The world was different, oh, yes, it was
D                       A                 Bm
You settled down and you built a town and made it there
                     A            G    A
And you watched it grow, it was your town

D - G/D - A/D - G/D

  D                A
Time goes by and time brings changes
You've changed too
   G                A
Nothing comes that you can't handle
So on you go
 D                  A
You never see it coming
          Bm         Am      G
When the world caves in on you
G         A      G             A  G/B A/C#
On your town, nothing you can do

 D                 G               D
Main Street isn't Main Street anymore
 D                       G                A        G/B  A/C#
Lights don't shine as brightly as they shone before
  Bm              D7                    G     Gm
Tell the truth, lights don't shine at all
G       A
In our town

D - G/D - A/D - G/D

 D                      A                      D
The sun comes up each morning just like it's always done
 G             A                  D
Get up, go to work and start the day
      D          A
You open up for business
        Bm   Am      G
That's never gonna come
         Em         D/F#      G            A   G/B  A/C#
As the world rolls by a million miles away

D                  G              D
Main Street isn't Main Street anymore
D                 G                 A   G/B  A/C#
No one seems to needs us like they did before
      Bm              D7              G       Gm
It's hard to find a reason left to stay
          D    A
But it's our town
  G        A
Love it anyway
 Em    D/F#   G   A
Come what may
           D    G/D    A/D    G/D      D
It's our town
