Wide Open Spaces (Live TV Version)

In the style of

Dixie Chicks

James Taylor

Lyrics

who doesn't know
what i'm talkin' about
who never left home
who never struck out
to find a dream and
a life of their own

little place
in the clouds
a foundation
of stone

many precede
and many will follow
a young girl's dreams
no longer hollow
it takes the shape
of a place
out west

but what it
holds for her
she hasn't yet guessed
she needs

wide-open spaces
room to make
her big mistakes
she needs new faces
and she knows
the high stakes

she traveled
this road as a child
wide-eyed and grinnin'
she never tired

well now
she won't be
comin' back
with the rest
she's learned
the lesson
she'll pass the test

she needs
wide-open spaces oh
needs room to make
her big mistakes

she needs new faces
and she knows
the high stakes
yeah she knows
the high stakes

ah ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah ah
as her folks
drive away
her dad yells
check the oil

mom stares out
the window and says
i'm losin' my girl
she says
it didn't seem like
that long ago

when she stood
there yeah
and let her own
folks know
she needed

wide-open
spaces
oh room
to make her
big mistakes
she needs

new faces 'cause
she knows the
high stakes
she'll take the
highest stakes

oh open spaces
yeah
'cause she knows
the high stakes
oh no
