**Begin Intro:
When the guitar starts, play this intro 2
times. Funny thing though. I have viewed
another transcription of this song from a
very reliable and accurate source and they
make no note of this intro. Am I hearing
things or is there a bass in there?

Start picking or plucking to the rhythm of the song.
I'm estimating the note counts. No time.

Lyrics:

Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face
With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life
With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he's not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world
With arms wide open...
