I have the main riff for a 50's rock song done but I'm looking for the chorus. Like hte song "Last Kiss". So, what are some good chords for a chorus or even chords that work with the 50's rock song style. Thanks!
They use A-D-A-E or something like that in Peggy Sue by Buddy Holly

I'd say look up some stuff by Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison and use that as a starting point
Richie Vaaaalens!

Bam-ba, lah bah, bah-bamba!

But uh, I would look into his stuff, Buddy Holly, you know... one of my beginner lesson books said A5 (power chord) was pretty used then. I dunno...

Alot of the sound was made by bar-chords, with a mixture of a few melody notes (often derived from swing or surf music to my ears).

Sounds right.

Fender Deluxe Players Strat > Big Muff > LPB-1 > Moog Ring Mod > MXR Dynacomp > MXR Phase 90 '74 > Fender Hot Rod 410 (soon)
Blues progression?
I - I - I - I
IV - IV - I - I
