Whole Song (chords):
Intro(x2): Am G C F/E  F/E C Gmaj9/E Gadd4


Verse 1:

Am  G           C     F/E
Way back on the radio dial
  F/E      C    Gmaj9/E   Gadd4
A fire got lit inside a   bright eyed child
Am    G         C                   F/E
Every note just wrapped around your soul
     F/E          C          Gmaj9/E   Gadd4
From steel guitar to Memphis all the   way to rock and roll


Chorus:

F~   C~  Am             G
Whoa oah I can hear 'em saying
F              C            Am              G
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
F~   C~  Am             G
Woah oah I can hear 'em saying
F       C             G                 C
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart


Verse 2:

Am  G    C               F/E
Downtown where I used to wander
F/E        C            Gmaj9/E   Gadd4
Old enough to get there but too   young to get inside
Am G    C                F/E
I would stand out on the sidewalk
F/E       C         Gmaj9/E   Gadd4
Listen to the music playing   every Friday night


Chorus:

F~   C~  Am             G
Whoa oah I can hear 'em playing
F              C            Am              G
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
F~   C~  Am             G
Woah oah I can hear 'em saying
F       C             C                 G
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart


Verse 3:

Am   G      C                F/E
Some dreams stay with you forever
F/E       C         Gmaj9/E    Gadd4
Drag you around and lead you   back to where you were
Am   G      C               F/E
Some dreams keep on getting better
F/E         C         Gmaj9/E  Gadd4
Got to keep believing if you   want to know for sure


Chorus(x2):

F~   C~  Am             G
Whoa oah I can hear 'em saying
F              C            Am              G
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
F~   C~  Am             G
Woah oah I can hear 'em saying
F       C             G                 C
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart
