  Eddie waited till he finished high school

 He went to Hollywood,  got a tattoo

 He met a girl out there with a tattoo too

The future was wide open

They moved into a place they both could afford
He found a nightclub he could work at the door
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
The sky was the limit

 GCD
  Into the  great wide  open,
 GCDAm
  Under them  skies of  blue 
 GCD
  Out in the  great wide  open,
 GFEmA
 rebel  without a  clue

The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the charts
T he sky was the limit

His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single"
The future was wide open

Into the great wide open,
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open,
A rebel without a clue

Into the great wide open,
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open,
A rebel without a clue

After "future was wide open" the "CFCG" should actually be "GCGG"


After "Sky was the limit" should be "GCGG, GCGD"
