          D#m             F#       D#m                   F#
I said I wanna touch the earth  I wanna break it in my hands
         D#m            F#          C# 
I wanna grow something wild and un-ruly
         D#m                F#            D#m            F#
I wanna sleep on the hard ground In the comfort on your arms
      D#m             F#            C#
On a pillow of blue bonnets  In a blanket made of stars
        B     F#     C#     
Oh it sounds good to me I said

CHORUS:
        F#   B    C#                   F#  
Cowboy take me a-way Fly this girl as high as you can
  B            C#           F#  B     C#   
Into the wild blue Set me free Oh I pray
            F#               B        C#    C#        
Closer to heaven above and closer to you, Closer to you
1.)B D#m B D#m C#  2.) go lead


         D#m          F#            D#m          F#   
I wanna walk and not run   I wanna skip and not fall
         D#m           F#            C#          
I wanna look at the horizon And not see a building standing tall
         D#m         F#      D#m       F# 
I wanna be the only one For miles and miles
  D#m             F#            C# 
Except for maybe you and your simple smile
        B      F#    C#           B        F#     C#   
Oh it sounds good to me - Yes it sound so good to me

Repeat chorus

          D#m             F#       D#m                   F#
I said I wanna touch the earth  I wanna break it in my hands
         D#m            F#          C# 
I wanna grow something wild and un-ruly
Repeat chorus, go to ending
ENDING:
            D#m               B       C#             F#  B C#
Closer to Heaven above and closer to you, closer to you
        F#   B    C#            F#
Cowboy take me a-way closer to you
