Here's a slightly more tricky TP song - any suggestions or corrections
are most welcome. Anyway here comes my version of ...

INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN by TOM PETTY from the album of same name
 
The intro and first few bars of the verse seem to be the following:
 
    Em  Em? Em7 Em6
 
e---0-----------------
b---0-----------------          The chord names are probably a bit 
g---0-----------------                dodgy but - hey. If you play this 
d---2----1---0--------                on an acoustic 12 string (like TP's 
a---2----2---2---4----                nice Martin one ...) it sounds ok.
e---0----0---0---0----
 
 
 
Em    Em?            Em7           Em6
Eddie waited till he finished high school
Em         Em?        Em7      Em6
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
Am       Am/G               Am/F#     Am/G
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
    G          F    C       G C G
The future was wide open.
 
Em         Em?               Em7        Em6
They moved into a place they both could afford 
Em         Em?                Em7         Em6
He found a nightclub he could work at the door
Am        Am/G            Am/F#          Am/G
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
    G   F       C          G C G     G C GD
The sky was the limit.
 
G        C          D(sus4)  G          Em       D     Am
Into the great wide open,    under them skies of blue
G          C          D(sus4)    G         F     Em     A
Out in the great wide open,    a rebel without a clue.
 
 
(instrum: play the intro riff and end with G then A - I think)
 
The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the charts
The sky was the limit.
 
His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled.
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single."
The future was wide open.
 
Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.
 
Into the great wide open,  under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.

final flourish: G C G   G C G.
