I've learnt a lot from Buddy's songs as a beginner because you get a great sound out of your guitar using basic chords and that inspires you.

This is really simple chord wise and a great tune. The secret I found is not to forget yourself and leave the A chord for another G before the second line of the verse.

The other great thing is the intro is the same chord pattern as the verse. Which was great for me as everyone knows here that I'm hopeless at putting down intros.

Verse 1:
--------A-------G------A
Well, all right so I'm being foolish
--------A--------G-----A
Well, all right let people know
--------A--------G------A
About the dreams and wishes you wish
--------A------------G---------A
In the night when the lights are low

Chorus:
--------D------------E
Well, all right, well all right
-----A-------G------A
We'll live and love with all our might
--------D------------E
Well, all right, well all right
-----A--------G----------A
Our lifetime love will be all right

Verse 2:
Well, all right, so I'm going steady
It's all right when people say
That those foolish kids cant be ready
For the love that comes their way

Chorus:
Well, all right, well all right
We'll live and love with all our might
Well, all right, well all right
Our lifetime love will be all right

Repeat last verse

Enjoy
