Wide open spaces  Dixie Chicks

                                    [E]Who doesn't [Esus/A]know what I'm [E]talking About[Esus]     [E]
[E]Who's never left [Esus/A]home, who's never [E]stru[Esus]ck ou[E]t
To find a [A]dream and a life of their [E]own[Esus]     [E]
A [A]place in the clouds, a foundation [B]of stone
[E]Many prec[Esus/A]ede and many will f[E]ollo[Esus]w     [E]
[E]A young girl's [Esus/A]dream no longer [E]hollo[Esus]w    [E]
It takes the [A]shape of a place out[E] Wes[Esus]t    [E]
But what it [A]holds for her, she hasn't [B]yet g[Bsus]uessed[B]
[E]She needs wide [F#m]ppen [A]spaces[B]
[E]Room to [F#m]make her big m[A]ista[B]kes
She needs [E]n-[F#m]ew  [A]faces [B]
She knows high [E]stak[F#m]es  [A]  [B]
[E]She travelled this [Esus/A]road as a [E]chil[Esus]d    [E]
Wide eyed and [Esus/A]grinning, she never t[E]ir[Esus]ed    [E]
But now she [A]won't be coming back with the [E]res[Esus]t    [E]
If these are [A]life's lessons, she'll take [B]this [Bsus]test [B]
[E]She needs wide [F#m]open [A]spaces[B]
[E]Room to [F#m]make her big m[A]ista[B]kes
She needs [E]n-[F#m]ew  [A]faces [B]
She knows high [E]stakes
She [F#m]knows the high [A]stake[B]s

solo

[E]                   [Esus/A]                 [E] [Esus] [E] 
As her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Check The Oil!"
Mom stares out the [Esus/A]window and says, "I'm Leaving My [E]Gi[Esus]rl"  [E]
She says, it [A]didn't seem like that long [E]ago[Esus]     [E]
When she [A]stood there and let her own [B]folks [Bsus]know [B]
[E]She needs wide [F#m]open [A]spaces[B]
[E]Room to [F#m]make her big m[A]ista[B]kes
She needs [E]n-[F#m]ew  [A]faces [B]
She knows high [E]stakes
She [F#m]knows the high [A]stake[B]s
