The Dixie Chicks are the best female band ever - and even better, they stand up for what 
believe in.  If this record doesn't go gold, or even platinum, it'll be robbery!

(standard tuning, no capo)

F     C     F     C ...

F               C            F           C
My friends from high school
F             C           F            C
Married their high school boyfriends
F          C        F        C
Moved into houses
       F        C                 F       C
In the same ZIP codes where their parents live

   Am                F       C       F       C
But I, I could never follow
   Am               F       C       F       C
No I, I could never follow

F         C        F        C
I hit the highway
     F     C      F            C
In a pink RV with stars on the ceiling
F            C       F       C
Lived like a gypsy
F          C            F        C
Six strong hands on the steering wheel

            Am   G    F    C
I've been a long time gone now
      Am       G                 F      C
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
         Am     G        F       C
But I've always found my way somehow

   Am         G         F        C
By taking the long way
Am         G         F         C
Taking the long way around
Am         G         F         C
Taking the long way
Am         G         F
Taking the long way around

F     C     F     C ...

          F        C        F        C
I met the queen of whatever
F              C         F               C
Drank with the Irish and smoked with the hippies
F              C         F         C
Moved with the shakers
         F            C               F       C
Wouldn't kiss all the asses that they told me to

   Am               F       C       F       C
No I, I could never follow
   Am               G
No I, I could never follow


          Am  G    F     C
It's been two long years now
          Am         G          F        C
Since the top of the world came crashing down
        Am         G           F    C
And I'm gettin' it back on the road now

        Am         G        F        C
But I’m taking the long way
Am         G        F        C
Taking the long way around
    Am         G        F        C
I’m taking the long way
    Am         G        F
I’m taking the long way around


G   F                               G
Oh, I just take my time I won't lay down
    F
And take the long way 'round

Am      G       F       C         (end on F)


        F             C              F     C
Well, I fought with a stranger and I met myself
  F         C           F       C
I opened my mouth and I heard myself
       F          C               F        C
It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
F                  C              F    C
Guess I could have made it easier on myself

   Am                F       C       F       C
But I, I could never follow
   Am               G
No I, I could never follow

        Am            G          F       C
Well, I never seem to do it like anybody else
      Am       G                 F      C
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
       Am           G             F        C
If you ever want to find me I can still be found

Am         G        F       C
Taking the long way
Am         G        F       C
Taking the long way around
Am         G        F       C
Taking the long way
