[D]Who doesn't [D/G]know what I'm t[D]alking about,[D/G]
[D]Who,s never left [D/G]home who's never str[D]uck out,
To find a d[G]ream and a life of their o[D]wn,
[G]A place in the clouds a foundation o[A]f stone.
[D]Many prec[D/G]ede and many will fo[D]llow,[D/G]
[D]A young girls d[D/G]reams no longer ho[D]llow,
It takes the sh[G]ape of a place out w[D]est,
What it h[G]olds for her she hasn't y[A]et guessed,
She needs,
[D]Wide [D/G]open sp[G]aces,[A]
[D]Room to[D/G] make her big mi[G]stakes,[A]
[D]She need[D/G]s new fa[G]ces,[A]
[D]She [D/G]knows the[G] hig[A]h stakes
[D]She traveled this [D/G]road as a ch[D]ild,[D/G]
[D]Wide-eyed and gr[D/G]inning she never ti[D]red,[D/G]
But now she w[G]on't be coming back with the r[D]est,
If these are l[G]ife lessons, she'll take t[A]his test
[D]As her folks drive [D/G]away her dad yells "ch[D]eck the oil",[D/G]
[D]Moms stares out the w[D/G]indow and says "I'm lea[D]ving my girl",
She says "it [G]didn't seem all that long a[D]go,
When she st[G]ood there and let her own f[A]olks know"
Intro is same chords as above but there is an Em thrown in.
Instrumental is basically the same as the chorus.
