Verse:
 E           A            E
Who doesn't know what I'm talking about 
 E                A                  E
Who's never left home, who's never struck out 
            A                        E
To find a dream and a life of their own 
   A                         B
A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone 

Verse:
 E      A                   E
Many precede and many will follow 
 E              A               E
A young girl's dream no longer hollow 
              A                   E
It takes the shape of a place out west 
             A                         B
But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed 

Chorus:
           E    Gbm    A    B
She needs wide open spaces 
 E       Gbm           A     B 
Room to make her big mistakes 
         E  Gbm  A  
She needs new faces 
     B              E     Gbm A B
She knows the high stakes 

Verse:
 E                A          E
She traveled this road as a child 
 E              A                  E
Wide eyed and grinning, she never tired 
             A                             E
But now she won't be coming back with the rest 
              A                           B
If these are life's lessons, she'll take this test 

Chorus:
           E    Gbm    A    B
She needs wide open spaces 
 E       Gbm           A     B 
Room to make her big mistakes 
         E  Gbm  A  
She needs new faces 
     B              E     Gbm A B
She knows the high stakes 

Bridge:
As her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Check the oil!" 
Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm leaving my girl" 
She said, "It didn't seem like that long ago" 
When she stood there and let her own folks know 

Chorus:
           E    Gbm    A    B
She needs wide open spaces 
 E       Gbm           A     B 
Room to make her big mistakes 
         E  Gbm  A  
She needs new faces 
     B              E     Gbm A B
She knows the high stakes 

Outro:
She knows the highest stakes 
She knows the highest stakes 
She knows the highest stakes 
She knows the highest stakes

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
