Jason Aldean – Fly Over Statesaa

BM7 = 020202

Intro – G

(VERSE 1)
G
A couple guys in first class on a flight
Bm
From new York to Los Angeles,

Kinda making small talk killing time,

Flirting with the flight attendants,
Cadd9 Am
30,000 feet above, could be Oklahoma,
G
Just a bunch of square cornfields and wheat farms,
Bm
Man it all looks the same,

Miles and miles of back roads and highways,

Connecting little towns with unknown names,
Cadd9 Am D
Who’d want to live down there in the middle of nowhere,

(CHORUS)
Em7 C
They’ve never drove through Indiana,
G
Met the men who plowed that earth,
D Bm7
Planted that seed, busted his ass for you and me,
Em7 C
Or caught a harvest moon in Kansas,
D C
They’d understand why god made those fly over states

(VERSE 2)
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, Yeah that sounds like a first class seat

(CHORUS)
Em7 C
On the plains of Oklahoma
G
Where the windshield sunset in your eyes
D Bm7
Like a watercolor painted sky
Em7 C
You’d think heavens doors have opened
D
You’ll understand why god made
C
Those fly over states

(Lead – Em7 – Cadd9 – G – D – Bm7)

G Cadd9
Take a ride across the badlands
G
Feel that freedom on your face
D Bm7
Breathe in all that open space
G Cadd9
Meet a girl from Amarillo
D
You’ll understand why god made
C
Why you’d want to plant your stakes
G
In those fly over states
