[Verse]

Em     Em(maj7)       Em7           Em6
 Eddie waited till he finished high school
Em         Em(maj7)   Em7      Em6
 He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
Am        Am/G                Am/F#    C/G
 He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
    G          F    C       G G C  G G G G 
The future was wide open


[Verse]

Em            Em(maj7)        Em7          Em6
 They moved into a place they both could afford
Em          Em(maj7)           Em7         Em6
 He found a nightclub he could work at the door
Am         Am/G           Am/F#           C/G
 She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
    G   F       C          G G C  G G G G | G G C  G G D
The sky was the limit


[Chorus]

G        C          Dsus4  
Into the great wide open
G          Em       D     Am
Under them skies of blue
G          C          D(sus4)    
Out in the great wide open
  G        F      Em     Asus2  G G C  G G G G | G G C  G G G G |
A rebel without a clue

[Verse]

Em          Em(maj7)       Em7             Em6
 The papers said Ed always played from the heart
Em         Em(maj7)    Em7          Em6
 He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
Am           Am/G          Am/F#       C/G
 They made a record and it went in the charts
    G   F       C      G G C  G G G G |
The sky was the limit


[Verse]

Em           Em(maj7)   Em7               Em6
 His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
Em             Em(maj7)     Em7         Em6
 They both met movie stars, partied and mingled
Am/F#  Am/G            Am           C
 Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single."
    G          F    C        G G C  G G G G | G G C  G G D
The future was wide open


[Chorus]

G        C          Dsus4  
Into the great wide open
G          Em       D     Am
Under them skies of blue
G          C          Dsus4    
Out in the great wide open
  G        F      Em     Asus2  
A rebel without a clue


[Chorus]

G        C          Dsus4  
Into the great wide open
G          Em       D     Am
Under them skies of blue
G          C          Dsus4    
Out in the great wide open
  G        F      Em     Asus2  
A rebel without a clue

A great song and good contribution.
Just some slight suggestions with very subtle differences...
In the Verses: I play a C/G instead of the Am/G, and I would rename the Am/F# as F#m7b5. The F I play as an Fadd9 (xx3213), which keeps the high G on the 1st string.

In the Choruses: I would go to a D on 'open', followed by a couple of hammered-on Dsus4 back to D. On the first Em I'd play it as an Em7/B (x22030), and again I'd use an Fadd9 instead of the F.
