Asus2    A     Asus2    A    Asus2    A

Asus2           A            Asus2    A
My friends from high school
Asus2         A           Asus2 A
Married their high school boyfriends
Asus2      A       Asus2    A
Moved into houses
       Asus2    A                 Asus2    A
In the same ZIP codes where their parents live

    F#m              Asus2    A     Asus2    A
But I, I could never follow
   F#m              Asus2    A     Asus2    A
No I, I could never follow

Asus2     A       Asus2    A
I hit the highway
     Asus2 A      Asus2        A
In a pink RV with stars on the ceiling
Asus2        A     Asus2    A
Lived like a gypsy
Asus2      A            Asus2    A
Six strong hands on the steering wheel

            F#m  E    Dsus2  A
I've been a long time gone   now
      F#m      E                Dsus2    A
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle  down
         F#m    E        Dsus2   A
But I've always found my way somehow

   F#m        E        Dsus2    A
By taking the long way
F#m        E           Dsus2   A
Taking the long way around
F#m        E     Dsus2    A
Taking the long way
F#m        E          Dsus2       
Taking the long way around

Asus2   A    Asus2   A   Asus2   A   Asus2   A    

           Asus2   A   Asus2   A
I met the queen of whatever
Asus2          A         Asus2           A
Drank with the Irish and smoked with the hippies
Asus2          A         Asus2    A
Moved with the shakers
         Asus2        A               Asus2   A
Wouldn't kiss all the asses that they told me to

   F#m              Asus2   Asus2    A
No I, I could never follow
      F#m           E
No I, I could never follow


          F#  E    Dsus2  A
It's been two long years  now
          F#m        E          Dsus2    A
Since the top of the world came crashing down
        F#m        E           Dsus2    A
And I'm gettin' it back on the road     now

        F#m        E        Dsus2  A
But I’m taking the long way
F#m        E            Dsus2   A
Taking the long way around
    F#m        E      Dsus2   A
I’m taking the long way
    F#m        E           Dsus2          E
I’m taking the long way around


    Dsus2                           E
Oh, I just take my time I won't lay down
    Dsus2              F#m     E    Dsus2    A
And take the long way 'round    

F#m     E        Dsus2       A  (repeat X2)
F#m     E        Dsus2       


        Asus2         A              Asus2   A
Well, I fought with a stranger and I met myself
  Asus2     A           Asus2   A
I opened my mouth and I heard myself
       Asus2      A               Asus2    A
It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
        Asus2              A      Asus2   A
Guess I could have made it easier on    myself

    F#m              Asus2    A     Asus2    A 
But I, I could never follow
   F#m              E 
No I, I could never follow

        F#m           E          Dsus2   A
Well, I never seem to do it like anybody else
      F#m      E                Dsus2   A
Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down
       F#m          E             Dsus2    A
If you ever want to find me I can still be found

F#m        E        Dsus2       A
Taking the long way
F#m        E           Dsus2     A
Taking the long way around
F#m        E        Dsus2      A
Taking the long way

Repeat a few more times

End on:

F#m     E        Dsus2       A

Natalie plays it with the capo on 5, which is more straightforward: just set the "transpose" control on the left to -2. (the backing guitar does play it with the capo on the 3rd fret as written here).
