[INTRO]
(chords in parentheses are implied chords in the walkdown)
F/C   C | | E7    E/G#   Am | Am C/E |
F     C | | F ( C/E Dm7 ) C |        |


[VERSE 1]
       C                F                C
It was in a crystal bot - tle on his desk
     C                    F              C
He'd save it for the times to not forget
  F                      G
I miss the way he'd share with me
          C       Gadd4/B     Am
The things that he       held true
          F                                 G
While the lessons rolled around his 80 proof


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
               F               C
All it took was one sip and it blew my mind
      G                  C
Those good ol' boys sure make it right
       F                    C
Knowing smooth whiskey takes some time
      G                     C
Ain't nothing like the real thing
        F/C                    C
And you can't go back once you get a taste
G             Am         Am7
Everything is second rate
            F                   C
I'm talking genuine Made in the USA
      G                     C
Ain't nothing like the real thing


[CHORUS 1]
(gang vocals in parentheses)
     F                   C
Real thing
    (There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)
 G                    Am7
(There ain't nothing) Real thing
 F                   C                        G C
(There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)


[VERSE 2]
C                       F             C
Thought I'd been in love a time or two
       C                   F           C  C7
Didn't know that I was lost till I met you
    F                   G                C    Em     Am Am7/G
And I could tell that e - very other girl was history
      F                                       G
Never knew how real could feel till you found me


[PRE-CHORUS 2]
               F         C
All it took was one kiss and you blew my mind
   G            C
An All-American kind of fine
          F              C
You know a good woman is hard to find
      G                     C
Ain't nothing like the real thing
        F                      C
And you can't go back once you get a taste
G           Am
Everyone is second rate
            F                   C
I'm talking genuine Made in the USA
      G                     C
Ain't nothing like the real thing


[CHORUS 2]
(gang vocals in parentheses)
         F                   C
The real thing
        (There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)
 G                    Am7
(There ain't nothing) Real thing
 F                   C
(There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)
 G                  C
(There ain't nothing)
     F                   C
Real thing
    (There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)
 G                    Am7
(There ain't nothing) Real thing
 F                   C
(There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)
 G                  C
(There ain't nothing)


[BRIDGE]
                 F                  C
       You know a great song is hard to find
G                              Am7
       The right words and the perfect rhyme
               F                 C
      'Cause we all feel the same inside
                 G                    C
       We're all looking for the real thing
Cadd9/E                F                     C
       You know you're not the same once you hear it play
               G           E/G#     Am
       There's nothing else    that can replace
              F                   C
       What's genuine Made in the USA
             G                     C
       Ain't nothing like the real thing
(tag)
                   F                   C
       I'm talking genuine Made in the USA
             G                     C
       Ain't nothing like the real thing


[INTERLUDE]
(piano)
F  C | | G  Am | Am C7/E |
F  C | | G  C  |         |
(add organ)
Dm7 C/E | F F#dim | C/G G#dim | Am C/E |

         ^ this is the root, but this is mostly implied by context;
           guitar does its own thing mostly around the sus notes (2/4)

The real thing
        (There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)

(There ain't nothing like the real thing baby)

NeoMvsEu... I was also working on the chords, but you beat me to it. I like your version much better. Mine is similar but much more simplified. Well done!
