A couple guys in first class on a flight,
From New York to Los Angeles.

Kinda making small talk killing time,
Flirting with the flight attendants.
 C                            Am
30, 000 feet above, could be Oklahoma.

Just a bunch of square cornfields and wheat farms,
Man it all looks the same.

Miles and miles of back roads and highways,

Connecting little towns with unknown names.
C                                             Am                        D
Who'd want to live down there in the middle of nowhere.


                                Em                  C
They've never drove through Indiana.
Met the men who plowed that earth, 
                               D                                        Bm7  
Planted that seed, busted his ass for you and me.

                        Em                    C
Or caught a harvest moon in Kansas,
                                D                                      C
They'd understand why God made those fly over states.


G                                                                                           Bm
I bet that mile long Santa Fe freight train engineer's seen it all.
Just like that flatbed cowboy stacking US steel on a 3-day haul.

Road and rails under their feet,
Am                              D
Yeah that sounds like a first class seat.


Em                                 C
On the plains of Oklahoma.
With the windshield sunset in your eyes.
                    D                    Bm7
Like a water  color painted sky.

     Em                                               C
You'd think heavens doors have opened.
You'll understand why God made,
Those fly over states.

SOLO - Em, C, G, D


Em ~                             C ~
Take a ride across the badlands.
G ~                               
Feel that freedom on your face.
D ~                                        Bm 7~
Breathe in all that open space.

Em                              C
Meet a girl from Amarillo.
You'll understand why god made.
Why you'd want to plant your stakes,
                                 D (or Dsus4 )
In those fly over states.

-SOLO - Em, C, G, D


Em                                               C    G   D
Have you ever been through Indiana.
Em                                    C   G   D
On the plains of Oklahoma.
Em            C   G   D
Take a ride.
