These are just the chords with the song (live acoustic version), but in fact there's an acoustic fingerpicking guitar in it too. I'm not sure about the chords played at the very end...but it sounds pretty good. Here it is:

D             A           G             D
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
    F#m            Bm                 G              A
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are
          Bm              F#m
There are starts in every city
         G                    A
In every house and on every street
            D                   G
And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
                    A         D
Their names are written in concrete

D		       A            G                 D
Don't tread on Greta Garbo as you walk down the Boulevard
    F#m                 Bm                    G              A       
She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard
          Bm                F#m  
But they turned her into a princess
          G             A  
And they sat her on a throne
          D        F#m        G   
But she turned her back on stardom
              A           D
Because she wanted to be alone

         C                        G                    D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
C                         G                            D
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
C                        G                        D
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
C                       G                    D
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

 D           A           G         D    
Rudolph Valentino looks very much alive
        F#m              Bm              G            A   
And he looks up ladies dresses as they sadly pass him by
 Bm                      F#m
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi
             G                  A 
'Cause he's liable to turn and bite
            D       F#m    G 
But stand close by Bette Davis
          A                     D
Because hers was such a lonely life


 D              A           G            D
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
       F#m          Bm                   G              A
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are
      Bm              F#m
And those who are successful
      G             A
Be always on your guard
          D           F#m        G
Success walks hand in hand with failure
        A           D
Along Hollywood Boulevard


La la la la....

   C                G                   D          
I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show
   C                  G                     D    
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
         C                 G              D        
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
      C                G           D    (A  Bm  G  D(5+A)?)  
And celluloid heroes never really die
