[Intro]
G  Cadd9  F6(9)  Cadd9


[Verse]
G                                           Cadd9      F6(9)  Cadd9
Sittin' out here on the hood of this truck, lookin' up
     G                         Cadd9    F6(9)  Cadd9
At a caramel colored sunset sky
G                                        Cadd9
Checkin' my watch, doin' the math in my head
       F6(9)  Cadd9    G                     Cadd9     F6(9)  Cadd9
Countin' back words to when you said "good-bye"
           Em                            F
Well those runway lights are getting brighter


[Chorus]
C                                  Fmaj7
I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
C             Fmaj7
Take off, and fly
C                                        Fmaj7
Tryin' to figure out which one you might be on
     C             Fmaj7
And why you don't love me anymore
      Am                  G             F
Right now I'm sittin' out here watching airplanes


PRE-VERSE:
G   Cadd9    F6(9)  Cadd9


[Verse 2]
    G                                            Cadd9     F6(9)  Cadd9
I would've lied, could've cried, should've tried harder
     G                        Cadd9    F6(9)  Cadd9
Done anything to make you stay
         G                                    Cadd9    F6(9)
I wonder what you'd do if you looked out your window
    Cadd9 G                     Cadd9               F6(9)  Cadd9        
Saw me runnin' down the runway, just like I was crazy
         Em                        F
But that fence is too high, so am i


[Chorus]

[Bridge]
   Am                G               F
By now I know you're thirty thousand feet above me
      Bb           F        Bb           F
But a million miles away, a million miles away
   Am                  G                 F
By now I know I outta' act like you don't love me
    C                                  Fmaj7
But I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
C                Fmaj7
Take off, and fly
C                                  Fmaj7
I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
C               Fmaj7
Take off, and fly
C                                        Fmaj7
Tryin' to figure out which one you might be on
     C             Fmaj7
And why you don't love me anymore


[Outro]
     C                                  Fmaj7
Yeah I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
    C           Fmaj7
Go bye, bye, bye
C                                  Fmaj7
I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
           C                Fmaj7
Baby bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
     C                                  Fmaj7
Yeah I'm just sittin' out here watching airplanes
      C                Fmaj7
Good-bye, bye, bye, bye

If you're going for an original version, the F6(9) and Cadd9 might be good. However, might I suggest you try it like this:

INTRO: F# B Bsus4 B (repeat 1x)


VERSE:

F# B Bsus4 B
Sittin' out here on the hood of this truck, lookin' up

F# B Bsus4 B
At a caramel colored sunset sky

F# B
Checkin' my watch, doin' the math in my head

Bsus4 B F# B
Countin' back words to when you said "good-bye"

Ebm E
Well those runway lights are getting brighter


I realize some of my chords are a half step below yours, but I'm not hearing the add9 and 6 chords you guys put in. Anyway, give it a try like this and see what you think.

Well, that's nice. The spacing on the chords didn't quite make it, but you should be able to get the idea.

i appreciate your comment. Did you tune your guitar down a half-step? if you did you should be able to hear it. Gary plays this song a half step down, and when i plugged in your chords it didn't sound right.
