Wide Open Road

	  OK this is my first TAB and it's only a very small contribution to the TAB below  
by geffo71@hotmail.com. Its basically just the outro but can also be played throughout 
the song on a second guitar, listen to the song for the timing in the last bars. 
I have put it at the end where it is heard in the song along with the correct lyrics below. 
 
corrections etc. to immorta email: immorta@chariot.net.au 
 
 
 
G 
 
Well the drums rolled off in my forehead 
 
C G 
 
Guns went off in my chest 
 
Em (Bm) 
 
Remember carrying the baby just for you 
 
C (D) 
 
Crying in the wilderness 
 
 
I lost track of my friends, I lost my kin 
Cut them off as limbs 
I drove out over the flatland 
hunting down you and him 
 
The sky was big and empty 
My chest filled to explode 
I yelled my insides out at the sun 
At the wide open road 
 
It's a wide open road, It's a wide open road 
 
So how do you think it feels 
Sleeping by yourself? 
When the one you love, the one you love 
Is with someone else 
 
Then it's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
And now you can go any place 
That you want to go 
 
I wake up in the morning 
Thinking I'm still by your side 
I reach out just to touch you 
Then I realise 
 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
 
So how do you think it feels 
Sleeping by yourself? 
When the one you love, the one you love 
Is with someone else 
 
I wake up in the morning 
Thinking I'm still by your side 
I reach out just to touch you 
Then I realise 
 
 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
It's a wide open road 
 
and now you can go any place that you want to go

--------------------------------------------------end of my contribution--------------------------------------------- An Australian Classic performed on behalf of The Triffids by Paul Kelly and Chris Bailey at the Mushroom 25 concert. The chords are fine; the ones in brackets appear only in the outro to the song. The only dubious lyrics are in the 2nd line of the 2nd verse, and I know they're wrong (this is the best sensible line I can offer). If you know the correct line send it to me at geffo71@hotmail.com G Well the drums rolled off in my forehead C G Drums went off in my chest Em (Bm) Remember carrying baby just for you C (D) Crying in the wilderness I lost track of my friends I lost our kid Cut them off as lost I drove out over the fat land Hunting down you and him The sky was big and empty My chest filled to explode I yelled my insides out at the sun The wide open road It's a wide open road It's a wide open road So how do you think it feels sleeping by yourself when the one you love the one you love is with someone else It's a wide open road It's a wide open road And now you can go any place that you want to go Wake up in the morning Thinking I'm still by your side I reach out just to touch you Then I realise It's a wide open road It's a wide open road So how do you think it feels Sleeping by yourself When the one you love the one you love Is with someone else Wake up in the morning I think I'm still by your side I reach out just to touch you Then I realise It's a wide open road {REPEAT by 8} It's a wide open road It's a wide open road And now you can go any place that you want to go
