Living On An Island
Status Quo
Whatever You Want 1979

A lovely one to strum along to.  Innit lovely?
If you want to strum along to the record then
you will need a capo on the second fret.
You can play it without a capo but it will put 
it in the key of G (as they do it live).  
(So obviously I have given you the shapes 
not the actual chords)

UPDATE:  
After nailing the bassline I have found some inversions
and extensions that I didn't see before.
NOTE: The bass changes the root note - not the guitar.

INTRO: |G| |C| |G| |C| |F| |C| |Csus4 C|

Live, they tend to end with a Dm6 I think.
Something like that.
I would play the Amadd11 thusly: 557555
