The Long Way Around  Dixie Chicks

Hi! This is my first tab, so go easy on me. :P There is a more accurate version of this
on capo 3, but this one is easier to play and sounds about the same. If you want the
to the chords, just listen to the song, or you can send me a message and I can give you
the details. Have fun!
Capo = 5
[Gsus2]My friends from [Gsus4]high school[Gsus2] [Gsus4]
[Gsus2]Married their [Gsus4]high school boyfriends[Gsus2] [Gsus4]
[Gsus2]Moved into [Gsus4]houses[Gsus2] [Gsus4]
In the [Gsus2]same ZIP [Gsus4]codes
[Gsus2]Where their [Gsus4]parents live
But [Em]I, I could never [Gsus2]follow[Gsus4] [Gsus2] [Gsus4]
No [Em]I, I could never [Gsus2]follow[Gsus4] [Gsus2] [Gsus4]
[Gsus2]I hit the [Gsus4]highway[Gsus2] [Gsus4]
In a [Gsus2]pink R[Gsus4]V with [Gsus2]stars on the [Gsus4]ceiling
[Gsus2]Lived like a [Gsus4]gypsy[Gsus2] [Gsus4]
[Gsus2]Six strong [Gsus4]hands on the [Gsus2]steering [Gsus4]wheel
I've been a [Em]long [D]time [Cadd9]gone n[G]ow
Maybe [Em]someday, [D]someday I'm gonna[Cadd9] settle [G]down
But I've [Em]always [D]found my [Cadd9]way some[G]how
By [Em]taking the [D]long way[Cadd9] [G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way [Cadd9]around[G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way[Cadd9] [G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way [Cadd9]around[G]
Met the [Gsus2]queen of what[Gsus4]ever[Gsus2] [Gsus4]
[Gsus2]Drank with the [Gsus4]Irish, [Gsus2]smoked with the [Gsus4]hippies
[Gsus2]Moved with the [Gsus4]shaker[Gsus2]s[Gsus4]
Wouldn't [Gsus2]kiss all the [Gsus4]asses that they [Gsus2]told me [Gsus4]to
No [Em]I, I could never [Gsus2]follow[Gsus4] [Gsus2] [Gsus4]
No [Em]I, I could never [Gsus2]follow[Gsus4] [Gsus2] [Gsus4]
Its been [Em]two [D]long [Cadd9]years [G]now
Since the [Em]top of the [D]world came [Cadd9]crashing [G]down
And I'm [Em]getting it [D]back on the [Cadd9]road n[G]ow
But I'm [Em]taking the [D]long way[Cadd9] [G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way [Cadd9]around[G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way[Cadd9] [G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way [Cadd9]around[G]
The [D]long
[Cadd9]The long way around
[G]Well, I fought with a stranger and I met myself
[G]I opened my mouth and I heard myself
[G]It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
[G]Guess I could have made it easier on myself
But [Em]I, I could never [Gsus2]follow[Gsus4] [Gsus2] [Gsus4]
No [Em]I, I could never [Gsus2]follow[Gsus4] [Gsus2] [Gsus4]
Well, I [Em]never seem to [D]do it like [Cadd9]anybody [G]else
Maybe [Em]someday, [D]someday I'm gonna[Cadd9] settle [G]down
If you [Em]ever want to [D]find me I can [Cadd9]still be [G]found
[Em]Taking the [D]long way[Cadd9] [G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way [Cadd9]around[G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way[Cadd9] [G]
[Em]Taking the [D]long way [Cadd9]around[G]
