Intro: Bm A D  Bm A D  Bm A D  A    G Bm D  G Bm D  G Bm D  A

               Bm    A   D
I said I wanna touch the earth
        Bm       A     D
I wanna break it in my hands
        Bm      A      D          A
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
        Bm           A    D
I wanna sleep on the hard ground
       Bm      A       D
In the comfort of your arms
     Bm     A       D
On a pillow of blue bonnets
     A
In a blanket made of stars
      G        D     A
Oh it sounds good to me I said

--CHORUS

       D    G    A
Cowboy take me away
                 Bm
Fly this girl as high as you can
  G            A
Into the wild blue
       D    G     A
Set me free oh I pray
          Bm
Closer to heaven above and
G          A                 G Bm D  G Bm D  G Bm D  A
Closer to you closer to you


        Bm   A         D
I wanna walk and not run
        Bm        A       D
I wanna skip and not fall
        Bm      A      D
I wanna look at the horizon
         A
And not see a building standing tall
      Bm     A      D
wanna be the only one
    Bm    A    D
For miles and miles
  Bm       A      D
Except for maybe you
        A
And your simple smile
      G        D      A
Oh it sounds good to me 
       G         D       A
Yes it sounds so good to me

--CHORUS

       D    G F#m A
Cowboy take me away
                 Bm
Fly this girl as high as you can
  G      F#m   A
Into the wild blue
       D    G F#m  A
Set me free oh I pray
          Bm
Closer to heaven above and
G     F#m  A              D G F#m A  
Closer to you closer to you
