Wide Open Spaces

Chords used: D, D/ G, G, A

This is nothing like their published sheet music version, but after watching the
clip, this is what they play. 

Capo 2nd Fret

    D     D/G  	  G     A
E --2------0-----3-----0---
B --3------3-----0-----2---
G --2------0-----0-----2---
D --0------2-----2-----2---
A --0------x-----3-----x---

Form a beat between the D and the D/G chord.

D           D/G            D             D/G
Who doesn't know what I'm talking about,

D                D/G                 D             
Who,s never left home who's never struck out,

           G                         D
To find a dream and a life of their own,
G                                   A
A place in the clouds a foundation of stone.

D        D/G                 D             D/G
Many precede and many will follow,

D              D/G               D             
A young girls dreams no longer hollow,

               G                   D
It takes the shape of a place out west,

         G                        A
What it holds for her she hasn't yet guessed,

She needs,

D    D/G    G      A
Wide open spaces,

D      D/G             G         A
Room to make her big mistakes,

D       D/G     G       A
She needs new faces,

D   D/G      G   A
She knows the high stakes

D                 D/G         D       D/G           
She traveled this road as a child,

D               D/G                D       D/G  
Wide-eyed and grinning she never tired,

             G                             D
But now she won't be coming back with the rest,

              G                         A
If these are life lessons, she'll take this test


D                  D/G                   D               D/G           
As her folks drive away her dad yells "check the oil",

D                    D/G                    D              
Moms stares out the window and says "I'm leaving my girl",

             G                          D    
She says "it didn't seem all that long ago,

           G                          A
When she stood there and let her own folks know"


Intro is same chords as above but there is an Em thrown in.
