                         Em    D/F#  G

    I said I wanna touch the earth

                     Em   D/F#  G
    I wanna break it in my hands

                      Em  D/F#      G             D
    I wanna grow something wild and unruly

                    Em     D/F#         G
    I wanna sleep on the hard ground

               Em     D/F#      G
    In the comfort of your arms

             Em    D/F#  G
    On a pillow of bluebonnets

    Oh it sounds good to me I said

    CHORUS:

                 G     Am7  D
    Cowboy take me away

    Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
                 G   Am7  D

    Set me free oh I pray

                  Em                       C               D 
    Closer to heaven above and closer to you

                   Em    D/F#  G

    I wanna walk and not run

                   Em    D/F#  G
    I wanna skip and not fall

                   Em    D/F#  G
    I wanna look at the horizon

                         D
    And not see a building standing tall

                 Em    D/F#  G
    I wanna be the only one

            Em    D/F#  G
    For miles and miles

         Em       D/F#   G
    Except for maybe you

                D
    And your simple smile

    Oh it sounds good to me

    I wanna break it in my hands

                      Em               D/F#        G
    I wanna grow something wild and unruly

    Oh it sounds good to me
