80 (short for Adrienne, Billie’s wife) is a song that relies on the bass line to carry us through the verses. The chords below in parentheses are chords that are not actually played in the song, but if you don’t happen to have a bass player handy, they will suffice to get you through to the sweet ass chorus where you can really rock out.

If you want to go a step further, simply alternate picking of the first and 5th note of each chord (the first two strings on your guitar) during the verses to emulate the bass line.
