About this tab version
I have played through the other versions but I have found that a few of the chords are slightly off, misplaced, or missing. I believe this version to be more accurate to what is played by the original artist. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hi, all. I tried to get as close to as how Kenny Chesney plays the song in this version. As seen in the music
video, he plays with the Capo on the first fret. In the Intro and Outro I've tried both D-Bm-Em-G and
D-Bm-A-G but having played to the track I believe it's more accurate to play D-Bm-Em-G. If you disagree with me,
please do so nicely in the comments. The lick that he plays in the Intro and Outro also appears at the end of
Chorus 1 as it leads into Verse 2 and so your timing for the Bm-Em transitions should match to the lick the 
same way that it did when he played the lick in the Intro.


Capo 1

Intro:
D   Bm  Em  G

Verse 1:
D
Looks like a royal in a thrift store dress
Bm
Keeps my heart and her hair a mess
A                                    G
She goes where the wind suggests she goes, who knows
D
Got a spirit that can’t be tamed
        Bm
She’s a calico pony on an open plain
A                                G
I know I’ll never be the same no more, for sure

Chorus 1:
        D
She’s a wild child
                                           Bm
Got a rebel soul with a whole lot of gypsy wild style
                                  A    G
She can’t be tied down but for a while I’ll
   Em
Be falling free and so alive
      G                  A                    D         Bm   Em 
Might break my heart but God she drives me so wild child

Verse 2:
D
You’ve never heard of her favorite band
              Bm
Unless you’ve been to Bonnaroo or Burning Man
      A                              G
She’s penny lane in a Chevy van, she loves to love

Chorus 2:
             D
She loves me wild child
                                           Bm
Got a rebel soul with a whole lot of gypsy wild style
                                  A    G
She can’t be tied down but for a while I’ll
   Em
Be falling free and so alive
      G                  A                    D           
Might break my heart but God she drives me so wild child

Bridge:
Em                       A
She’ll be here until she runs
Em                          G
Some just have to chase the sun

Chorus 3:
        D
She’s a wild child
                                           Bm
Got a rebel soul with a whole lot of gypsy wild style
                                  A    G
She can’t be tied down but for a while I’ll
   Em
Be falling free and so alive
      G                  A                    D
Might break my heart but God she drives me so wild child

Verse 3:
D                               Bm
A kaleidoscope of colors in her mind child
                                   A    G
A touch of crazy hides behind her wild smile
   Em
So simple yet experimental
G            A              D          
Innocent but still a little wild child

Outro:
    Bm  Em  G
D   Bm  Em  G
D   Bm  Em  (G)  (D)  (Em)

Note: Parentheses = single strum

Following the music video version of the song, this Outro is the same 4 chord progression played at the
beginning of the song in the intro. As Kenny finishes picking the riff the third time the in intro you want to 
play the chords in parenthesis with one strum each as he plays the few notes. Note that the D on
