        WIDE OPEN SPACES    Dixie Chicks
 
E           Esus4            E            Esus4  E
Who doesn't know what I'm talking About
E                Esus4                    E   Esus4 
Who's never left home, who's never struck out
            A                        E  
To find a dream and a life of their own
    A                                    B              
A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone
E        Esus4                 E   Esus4  E  
Many pre-cede and many will follow
E              Esus4              E    Esus4  
A young girl's dream no longer hollow
               A                     E   
It takes the shape of a place out a West
              A                              B     
But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed
           E    F#m    A     B
She needs wide open spaces
E       F#m           A       B
Room to make a big mistake
          E F#m   A     B
She needs n-ew  faces
                     E   F#m A B
She knows highest stakes
E                 Esus4      E    Esus4  E
She traveled this road as a child
E              Esus4                E    Esus4  
Wide eyed and grinning, she never tired
             A                             E  
But now she won't be coming back with the rest
              A                                B    
If these are life's lessons, she'll take this test
            E    F#m   A     B
She needed wide open spaces
E       F#m           A   B
Room to make her big mistakes
          E F#m   A     B
She needs n-ew  faces
                        E   
She knows 'bout high stakes
    F#m                 A    B    
She knows 'bout high stakes

E     Esus4  E       A          E 
Ahhh ahhh   ahhh    ahhhh ahhh ahhh 
E                  Esus4                            E    Esus4
As her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Check The Oil!"
E                            Esus4                    E 
Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm Leaving My Girl"
              A                          E  
She says, it didn't seem like that long ago
           A                                 B     
When she stood there and let her own folks know
            E   F#m     A     B
She needed wide open spaces
E       F#m           A   B
Room to make her big mistakes
          E F#m   A     B
She needs n-ew  faces
                       E   
She knows 'bout high stakes
    F#m                 A                       B       E
She knows 'bout high stakes  She knows 'bout highest stakes
ENDING:
Vamp on E  F#M  A  B
She knows 'bout highest stakes 
She knows 'bout highest stakes
