                I just sat down and figured this out yesterday.  I'm not sure it's all right,
but here it goes.  There is one chord I am not sure what it is called, I think
it's an E6, That is how I will note it, it looks like this:E A D G B e
                                                           | | | o | |
                                                           |-|-|-|-|-|
                                                           | | o | | |
                                                           |-|-|-|-|-|

Play the D chord like the one Eddie Van Halen uses in 316. For those who
don't know it looks like this:
                               e------------------------------
                               B--------------3---------------
                               G--------------2---------------
                               D--------------4---------------
                               A------------------------------
                               E--------------X---------------

I think this sounds a lot better than just using a regular D chord.

Anyway, the above so-called E6 chord should also be used.  Here it
is again in the same format I used to tab the above chord:

                               e------------------------------
                               B------------------------------
                               G--------------1---------------
                               D--------------2---------------
                               A------------------------------
                               E------------------------------

The first part (the heavy part) just goes A, E6, A, E6, D
with the little peck: D------0-0-
                      A--0-2-----
                      E----------

Then: A      E6            D          E6
      little ditty, about Jack and Diane

      A            E6               D      E6    A
      Two American kids growing up in the heartland

      A            E6     D       E6
      Jackie gonna be a football star

      A            E6                    D    E6      A
      Diane's debutante in th back seat of jackie's car
(same for every verse)

in-between:
     A
e-------------------------------------
B----2-3-2-
G----2-2-2-
D----2-2-2-
A----0-0-0-

     B----2-3-2-
     G----2-2-2-
     D----2-2-2-
     A----0-0-0-
     E---------

                E, D,D, A

CHORUS:
A      E6     D         E6
    Oh Yeah, life goes on

A              E6         D         E6
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone


A      E6            D         E
    Oh Yeah, I said, Life goes on

A              E         D      E  A
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone.

The rest is just different words to the same stuff above.
