Wide Open Spaces- Dixie Chicks

Tabbed by: MollyMonday
Capo 2nd Fret


[Verse 1]

 D           G            D
Who doesn't know what I'm talking about 
 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      G                   D
Many precede and many will follow 
 D              G               D
A young girl's dream no longer hollow 
              G                   D
It takes the shape of a place out west 
             G                         A
But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed 


[Chorus]

           D    Em    G    A
She needs wide open spaces 
 D       Em           G     A 
Room to make her big mistakes 
         D  Em  G  
She needs new faces 
     A              D     Em G A
She knows the high stakes 


[Verse 2]

 D                G          D
She traveled this road as a child 
 D              G                  D
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's lessons, she'll take this test 


[Chorus]

           D    Em    G    A
She needs wide open spaces 
 D       Em           G     A 
Room to make her big mistakes 
         D  Em  G  
She needs new faces 
     A              D     Em G A
She knows the high stakes 
 

[Verse 3]

As her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Check the oil!" 
Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm leaving my girl" 
She said, "It didn't seem like that long ago" 
When she stood there and let her own folks know 


[Chorus]

           D    Em    G    A
She needs wide open spaces 
 D       Em           G     A 
Room to make her big mistakes 
         D  Em  G  
She needs new faces 
     A              D     Em G A
She knows the high stakes 


[Outro]

She knows the highest stakes 
She knows the highest stakes 
She knows the highest stakes 
She knows the highest stakes

The D G D D (repeated in the first two lines) is actually D Em7 D D, I think, although the G works. I've seen some suggest its a G/B, but I think it's an Em7.
