Capo 4th fret

Standard (EADGBE)


Out on these Texas plains

You can see for a million lives

And there’s a thousand exits

Between here and the state line

About the last time that I saw you

You said call me Pandora

Call me fool

And I’m thinking this view, it could do you some good

So drop these scales and take a look


There’s forty acres and redemption to be found

Just along down the way

There is a place where no plow blade has turned the ground

But you will turn it over (hey)

Cause out here hope remains

Cause out here hope remains

Out here the Texas sky is as big as the sea

And you’re alone in your room like an island floating free

Your spirit’s hanging in a bottle on a tree

You say that you’re the black sheep, I say you’re still family

So throw that bottle to the waves

And I’ll bring you into me, and from the shore you will see


Out here the Texas rain is the hardest I’ve ever seen

It’ll wash your house away, but it’ll also make you clean

And all these rocks are crying out too

And this whole land is calling out for you
