Verse I: 

C                 F         C
Hey, where did we go, 
                  G*        C
Days when the rains came ?
           F                C
Down in the hollow  
             G*
Playing a new game,
C                 F              
Laughing and a-running, hey, hey,
C            G*
Skipping and a-jumping
C            F
In the misty morning fog with
C        G*
Our, our hearts a-thumping
        F   G              Am*    F
And you,      my brown-eyed girl,
       G            C     G*
You, my  brown-eyed girl.


Verse II:

C        F         C             
Whatever happened
           G*
To Tuesday and so slow
C                 F                   C
Going down to the old mine with a
           G*
Transistor radio.
C               F                     C
Standing in the sunlight laughing
              G*
Hide behind a rainbow's wall,
C            F           C
Slipping and a-sliding
              G*
All along the waterfall
         F   G              Am*       F
With you,      my brown-eyed girl,
       G              C
You, my    brown-eyed girl.

Chorus:

G
Do you remember when we used to sing
C               F          C          G
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
C               F          C          G
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
       C*       
La dee dah.

Verse III:

C               F        C
So hard to find my way
                 G*
Now that I'm all on my own.
C          F                   C
I saw you just the other day,
         G*
My, how you have grown!
C              F                 C
Cast my memory back there, Lord,
               G*
Sometime I'm overcome thinking about
C               F              C
Laughing and Running hey, hey,
           G*
Behind the stadium
         F  G              Am*      F
With you,     my brown-eyed girl,
       G             C       
You, my   brown-eyed girl.

Chorus:

G
Do you remember when we used to sing
C               F         C           G*
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
C               F         C           G*
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
C               F         C           G*
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
C               F         C           G*
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
       C
La dee dah.

*The *C's after the chorus and after the solo are a staccato type style played 7x 

*When playing the G's and Am's you can add a little walk down to the C and F chords. Like so:

    G              C    Am                          F
E|--3--3--1--0-----0--|-------------------0---------1--|
B|--0-----------3--1--|--1--3--1--0--1-------1------1--|
G|--0--------------0--|--2----------------------2---2--|
D|--0--------------2--|--2-------------2------------3--|
A|--2--------------3--|--0--------------------------3--|
E|--3-----------------|-----------------------------1--|

This is an optional F walk down to the G, after you've walked  down from the Am to the F.
I'm not entirely sure if he does this, I couldn't make it out. 
You can either play it or just strum the F chord.

I tabbed this out because I'm playing this for a concert coming up. 
I didn't see any tabs of this version on here, so I figured I'd share it with you guys. 
Hope you enjoy it. Please make any comments or suggestions you have if I messed up on something. 
Your feedback would be awesome.
