Long Way Around  Dixie Chicks

[Asus2]         [A]      [Asus2]         [A]     [Asus2]       [A] 
[Asus2]My friends from [A]high school  [Asus2]         [A]
[Asus2]Married their [A]high school [Asus2]boyfri[A]ends
[Asus2]Moved into [A]houses  [Asus2]         [A]
In the [Asus2]same ZIP [A]codes where their [Asus2]parents l[A]ive
But [F#m]I, I could never [Asus2]follow   [A]      [Asus2]         [A]
No [F#m]I, I could never [Asus2]follow   [A]      [Asus2]         [A]
[Asus2]I hit the [A]highway [Asus2]         [A]
In a [Asus2]pink R[A]V with [Asus2]stars on the [A]ceiling
[Asus2]Lived like a [A]gypsy [Asus2]         [A]
[Asus2]Six strong [A]hands on the [Asus2]steering [A]wheel
I've been a [F#m]long [E]time [Dsus2]gone   [A]now
Maybe [F#m]someday, [E]someday I'm gonna[Dsus2] settle  [A]down
But I've [F#m]always [E]found my [Dsus2]way some[A]how
By [F#m]taking the [E]long way [Dsus2]         [A]
[F#m]Taking the [E]long way aro[Dsus2]und     [A]
[F#m]Taking the [E]long w[Dsus2]ay       [A]
[F#m]Taking the [E]long way ar[Dsus2]ound
[Asus2]        [A]     [Asus2]        [A]    [Asus2]        [A]   [Asus2] [A] 
I met the q[Asus2]ueen of [A]what[Asus2]ever    [A]
[Asus2]Drank with the [A]Irish and [Asus2]smoked with the [A]hippies
[Asus2]Moved with the [A]shakers   [Asus2]         [A]
Wouldn't [Asus2]kiss all the [A]asses that they [Asus2]told me [A]to
No [F#m]I, I could never [Asus2]follow  [Asus2]         [A]
No I, [F#m]I could never [E]follow
It's been [F#]two [E]long [Dsus2]years  [A]now
          [F#m]           [E]           [Dsus2]    [A] 
Since the top of the world came crashing down
And I'm [F#m]gettin' it [E]back on the [Dsus2]road     [A]now

But Iツ知 [F#m]taking the [E]long way [Dsus2]       [A]
[F#m]Taking the [E]long way arou[Dsus2]nd      [A]
Iツ知 [F#m]taking the [E]long wa[Dsus2]y       [A]
Iツ知 [F#m]taking the [E]long way aro[Dsus2]und            [E]

Oh, [Dsus2]I just take my time I won't lay [E]down
And [Dsus2]take the long way '[F#m]round   [E]     [Dsus2]         [A]
F#m E Dsus2 A (repeat X2)
[F#m]        [E]         [Dsus2]                    

Well, I [Asus2]fought with a [A]stranger and I [Asus2]met myse[A]lf
I [Asus2]opened my [A]mouth and I [Asus2]heard my[A]self
It can [Asus2]get pretty [A]lonely when you [Asus2]show your[A]self
Guess I [Asus2]could have made it [A]easier [Asus2]on    my[A]self

But [F#m]I, I could never [Asus2]follow   [A]      [Asus2]         [A]
No [F#m]I, I could never [E]follow
Well, I [F#m]never seem to [E]do it like [Dsus2]anybody [A]else
Maybe [F#m]someday, [E]someday I'm gonna[Dsus2] settle [A]down
If you [F#m]ever want to [E]find me I can [Dsus2]still be [A]found
[F#m]Taking the [E]long way [Dsus2]            [A]
[F#m]Taking the [E]long way aro[Dsus2]und       [A]
[F#m]Taking the [E]long way [Dsus2]           [A]
Repeat a few more times

End on:

[F#m]        [E]         [Dsus2]            [A]

i was just taking a look at the Dixie Chicks songbook from this album, they recommend Capo 3 and A - Asus4. Sounds just like the real deal
