[Verse 1]

D           D/G            D             D/G
Who doesn't know what I'm talking about,
D                D/G                 D
Who,s never left home who's never struck out,
           G                         D
To find a dream and a life of their own,
G                                   A
A place in the clouds a foundation of stone.

D        D/G                 D             D/G
Many precede and many will follow,
D              D/G               D
A young girls dreams no longer hollow,
               G                   D
It takes the shape of a place out west,
         G                        A
What it holds for her she hasn't yet guessed,


[Chorus]

She needs,

D    D/G    G      A
Wide open spaces,
D      D/G             G         A
Room to make her big mistakes,
D       D/G     G       A
She needs new faces,
D   D/G      G   A
She knows the high stakes


[Verse 2]

D                 D/G         D       D/G
She traveled this road as a child,
D               D/G                D       D/G
Wide-eyed and grinning she never tired,
             G                             D
But now she won't be coming back with the rest,
              G                         A
If these are life lessons, she'll take this test


[Chorus]

She needs,

D    D/G    G      A
Wide open spaces,
D      D/G             G         A
Room to make her big mistakes,
D       D/G     G       A
She needs new faces,
D   D/G      G   A
She knows the high stakes


[Verse 3]

D                  D/G                   D               D/G
As her folks drive away her dad yells "check the oil",
D                    D/G                    D
Moms stares out the window and says "I'm leaving my girl",
             G                          D
She says "it didn't seem all that long ago,
           G                          A
When she stood there and let her own folks know"


[Chorus]

She needs,

D    D/G    G      A
Wide open spaces,
D      D/G             G         A
Room to make her big mistakes,
D       D/G     G       A
She needs new faces,
D   D/G      G   A
She knows the high stakes

this is the correct key, I'm not sure the D/G is actually labeled correctly, i think it's supposed to be G/B, but if it's referring to the chord I've been using for it then these chords are acurate.

Just so you know, you're missing the 6th big string on the chord chart you posted, which might make it seem partially incorrect
