FLY OVER STATES

(Revision of my first submitted tab. After listening to the song a few more times 
I realized I left some parts out. Ken "Landmine" L.)

Standard Tuning 
No capo

Begginning Part:


e|---7------|
b|-----8----|
g|-------7--|
d|----------|  X 5
a|----------|
E|----------|


VERSE:     

G G Dsus2

         G
A couple guys in first class on a flight 
                         Bm
From new York to Los Angeles, 

Kinda making small talk killing time, 
                                   C
Flirting with the flight attendants, 
                    Am
30, 000 feet above, could be Oklahoma, 
       G
Just a bunch of square cornfields and wheat farms, 
                     Bm
Man it all looks the same, 

Miles and miles of back roads and highways, 
                                     C
Connecting little towns with funny names, 
                              Am               D
Who'd want to live down there in the middle of nowhere,


CHORUS:

              Em                C
They've never drove through Indiana, 
                G
Met the men who plowed that earth, 
                   D                          Bm
Planted that seed, busted his ass for you and me, 
            
            Em              C
Or caught a harvest moon in Kansas, 
                  D                      C
They'd understand why god made those fly over states


VERSE:

G                                                               Bm
 I bet that mile long Santa Fe freight train engineer's seen it all
                                                           C
Just like that flatbed cowboy stacking US steel on a 3-day haul

Road and rails under their feet
Am                       D 
 Yeah that sounds like a first class seat




CHORUS: 
       Em             C
On the plains of Oklahoma 
              G
Where the windshield sunset in your eyes
       D                  Bm
Like a watercolor painted sky


            Em                 C        
You'd think heavens doors have opened
                  D
You'll understand why god made 
          C
Those fly over states

[solo]


       Em              C
Take a ride across the badlands
G 
Feel that freedom on your face
D                        Bm
Breathe in all that open space

       Em            C
Meet a girl from Amarillo
                  G
You'll understand why god made
                  C 
Why you'd want to plant your stakes
             D
In those fly over states

For the intro... Play the G chord and slide it up to the A (in the same fingering as the G) and then back to the G then up to the B (same fingering as the G chord) and you will create those notes that I think you are looking for. Kinda of confusing I know but, give it a shot.

Good tab

I think the Bm chords in the chorus should be B7, and the last D chord in the song should be G, but other than that I give it 5 stars...Good Job.

I think the three notes at the beginning are actually natural harmonics on the twelfth fret strings B G and D:


e------------
B--12--------
G-----12-----
D--------12--
A------------
E------------

At least I think that sounds prettier. Otherwise its great with the changes in the other two comments.
