LYRICS:

Eddie waited till he finished high school
Went to Hollywood and got a tattoo
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
The future was wide open

They moved into a place they both could afford
He found a niteclub he could work at the door
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
The sky was the limit

CHORUS
Into the great wide open
Under the skies of blue
Out of the great wide open
A rebel without a clue

GUITAR SOLO
Play intro

The paper said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the charts
The sky was the limit

His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars; partied and mingled
There A&R man said "I don't hear a single"
The future was wide open

CHORUS (2x)
First time, skip last 2 measures
