               Ebm    Db       Gb
I said I wanna touch the earth
        Ebm       Db     Gb
I wanna break it in my hands
        Ebm       Db     Gb          Db
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
        Ebm           Db    Gb
I wanna sleep on the hard ground
       Ebm         Db    Gb
In the comfort of your arms
     Ebm     Db       Gb
On a pillow of blue bonnets
     Db
In a blanket made of stars
      B      Gb       Db
Oh it sounds good to me,
 
I said..


       Gb    B   Db
Cowboy take me away
                 Ebm
Fly this girl as high as you can
  B           Db
Into the wild blue
       Gb    B    Db
Set me free oh I pray
          Ebm
Closer to heaven above and
B         Db
Closer to you 
             B Ebm Gb 
Closer to you

Interlude: B Ebm Gb 
B Ebm Gb Db

        Ebm       Db      Gb
I wanna walk and not run
        Ebm       Db      Gb
I wanna skip and not fall
        Ebm      Db       Gb
I wanna look at the horizon
        Db
And not see a building standing tall
      Ebm     Db       Gb
Wanna be the only one
    Ebm    Db        Gb
For miles and miles
Ebm         Db     Gb
Except for maybe you
        Db
And your simple smile


      B      Gb       Db
Oh it sounds good to me
       B         Gb       Db
Yes it sounds so good to me


       Gb    B   Db
Cowboy take me away
                 Ebm
Fly this girl as high as you can
  B           Db
Into the wild blue
       Gb    B    Db
Set me free oh I pray
          Ebm
Closer to heaven above and
B         Db
Closer to you 
             Gb B Db
Closer to you
