Eddie waited
Til' he finished high school
He went to Hollywood
Got a tattoo
He met a girl out there
With a tattoo too
The future was wide open

They moved into a place
They both could afford
He found a night club
He could work at the door
She had a guitar
And she taught him some chords
The sky was the limit

Into the great, wide open
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open
A rebel without a clue

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
There A and R man said
"I don't hear a single"
The future was wide open
(Ohh)

Into the great wide open
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open
A revel without a clue

Into the great wide open
Under them skies of blue
Into the great wide open
A revel without a clue
(Ohh)
