 Intro (DD--AA--GG, DD,--AA--GG)

[D]It start[A]ed way ba[G]ck in eight grade
[D]I used to [A]sit beside [G]Emmie Lou Hayes
[D]A pink dress, [A]matching shoes, and a [G]pony tail
[G]She kissed me on the school bus and [A]told me not to tell.
(same progression)
Next day I chased her around the playground
Across the monkey bars to the merry go round
and Emmie Lou got caught passing a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote: (chorus)
Do you l[D]ove me?, Do you w[Bm]ant to be my f[G]riend?
and if you d[A]o.
Then d[D]on't be afraid to t[Bm]ake me by the ha[G]nd
if you wa[A]nt to.
G A (no Chords)
I think this is how love goes...check yes or no.
Then play intro
Now we're grown up and she's my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Ain't much changed I still chase Emmie Lou
Up and down the hall,and the bed in our room.
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years togethor and she still gets to me
can't believe it's been that long ago
when we got started with just a little note.
chorus X 2
note on the extro you will use the D-A-G progression, but pick the high E
(that's the 1st string open, no insult meant) after each D and A chord in the
progression. This adds the nice ring that George adds in the video and that
neat Wrangler jeans commercial)

Two more things:

It should be Emmie Lou got caught passing ME a note

and also

Up and down the hall around the bed in our room

Also, it should be a matching bow in her ponytail not matching shoes and her ponytail.

It should be THIRD grade not eighth (and you have eight instead of eighth anyway)
