INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN by TOM PETTY from the album of same name
=================================================================

The intro and first few bars of the verse seem to be the following:

    Em  Em? Em7 Em6

e|---0---------------------------------------------------|
b|---0---------------------------------------------------|          The chord names are probably a bit
g|---0---------------------------------------------------|                dodgy but - hey. If you play this
d|---2----1---0------------------------------------------|                 on an acoustic 12 string (like TP's
a|---2----2---2---4--------------------------------------|                nice Martin one ...) it sounds ok.
e|---0----0---0---0--------------------------------------|


[Verse]

Em    Em?            Em7           Em6
Eddie waited till he finished high school
Em         Em?        Em7      Em6
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
Am       Am/G               Am/F#     Am/G
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
    G          F    C       G C G
The future was wide open.

Em         Em?               Em7        Em6
They moved into a place they both could afford
Em         Em?                Em7         Em6
He found a nightclub he could work at the door
Am        Am/G            Am/F#          Am/G
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
    G   F       C          G C G     G C GD
The sky was the limit.


[Chorus]

G        C          D(sus4)  G          Em       D     Am
Into the great wide open,    under them skies of blue
G          C          D(sus4)    G         F     Em     A
Out in the great wide open,    a rebel without a clue.


[Instrumentla]
(play the intro riff and end with G then A - I think)


[Verse]

Em    Em?            Em7           Em6
The papers said Ed always played from the heart
Em         Em?        Em7      Em6
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
Am       Am/G               Am/F#     Am/G
They made a record and it went in the charts
    G          F    C       G C G
The sky was the limit.

Em         Em?               Em7        Em6
His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
Em         Em?                Em7         Em6
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled.
Am        Am/G            Am/F#          Am/G
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single."
    G   F       C          G C G     G C GD
The future was wide open.


[Chorus]

G        C          D(sus4)  G          Em       D     Am
Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue
G          C          D(sus4)    G         F     Em     A
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.

G        C          D(sus4)  G          Em       D     Am
Into the great wide open,  under them skies of blue
G          C          D(sus4)    G         F     Em     A
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.


[Ending]

G C G   G C G

this tab is the accurate one, but instead of GCG its C then G...after the second verse its C-G then one stroke of the D chord

The Em6 chord is actually a D flat and should be;

E B G D A E
0 0 0 2 4 0
