I've divided this lesson into two parts. Beginner Lesson and Reminder chords. The 
beginner lesson is simply a walkthrough for the song and the reminder chords are 
for later once you have the lesson down and you print it out and you don't want 
all the side notes in the way.



~~~~~~~~~~PART 1: BEGINNER LESSON~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This song is a little difficult to explain in writing. It's best to have an audio 
version of the song and campare notes. It's not going to be perfect but it's a 
good hit and the orginal. 

For the astrick marked chords, these are played like the chart below.
The D is technically a Dadd9. To mute the strings on D and A simply put your index finger across the fifth fret.
D* A* G*e|-X-|-X-|-X-|B|-X-|-X-|-X-|G|-7-|-7-|-4-|D|-7-|-6-|-5-|A|-X-|-X-|-5-|E|-X-|-X-|-X-|
Intro: (The riff is pretty much the second part of the intro or the up down strumming intro. Read below.) Strumming is simply a down stroke with some palm muting. It's best to compare with the song itself. The first part is to play D* and to use your pinky and hit the G string and move up the fret. the second part is to play A* and use your pinky and hit the D string and move up the fret. Lasty hit hit G*. I personally like to hit the third fret and move to fourth to give it a little more sound. That's how Keith does it with the G* - G*. It's hard to explain in writing. That's half of the intro. Repeat what you did but this time the struming has changed to an up down stroke. It's a very easy song to learn strumming wise until the chorus.
D* D* - A* A* - G*T-To kiss and tell it's just not my style
G* G* - G* G* - D*But the night is young and it's been a while
D* - A* A* - G*And she broke my heart broke it right in two
G* G* - G* AAnd it took sometime but I'm feeling like I'm
A G A A GFinally ready to find, find somebody new
Chorus:
DI wanna kiss a girl
AI wanna hold her tight
G AMaybe make a little magic in the moonlight
D A GDon't wanna go too far just take it slow
Bm A7sus4 ABut I shouldn't be lonely in this big 'ol world
G - Ring Out I wanna kiss a girl (Repeat Riff) D* - A* - G*
D* D* - A* A* - G*It's that moment when you start closin' in
G* G* - G* G* - D*First you're holding back then surrenderin' (?)
D* D* - A* A* - G*It can start a fire, light up the sky
G* G* - ASuch a simple thing, do you wanna try
A GAre you ready to
G A GSay goodbye to all these blues?

~~~~~~~~~This part really isn't in the record too much but Keith does this live when he plays this acousticlly and it really adds something to it.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ [This part mute the bass string on your G chord with your fingers.] [Hit the muting strings then push down so they ring and switch between A to G.] [before finally hitting D when you start singing again.] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[Put your hand down toward the bottom of the neck muting all the string.] [Hit all the strings (while muted) upward then down again hitting only the low E around the 12ish fret and move down to the top of the neck. You should come out with a bum bow type sound.]
