Intro:  / Em - - - / D6/9 - - - / x2

 

             Em                     D6/9

On the first part of the journey

           Em                 D6/9

I was lookin at all the life

                     Em                      D6/9

There were plants and birds and rocks and things

                    Em                        D6/9

There were sand and hills and rings

 

         Em                         D6/9

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz

              Em                  D6/9

and the sky with no clouds

       Em                           D6/9

the heat was hot and the ground was dry

           Em                  D6/9

but the air was full of sound

 

Chorus

       Em                                      D6/9

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name

          Em                          D6/9

it felt good to be out of the rain

           Em                   D6/9

in the desert you can remember your name

                     Em                   D6/9

'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

   Em    D6/9             Em    D6/9

la la la  la lalala   la la  la  la la

 

         Em                   D6/9

After two days in the desert sun

        Em                    D6/9

my skin began to turn red

           Em                   D6/9

After three days in the desert fun

           Em                      D6/9

I was looking at a river bed

               Em                  D6/9

And the story it told of a river that flowed

                 Em                      D6/9

made me sad to think it was dead

 

Chorus

 

          Em                      D6/9

After nine days I let the horse run free

               Em                           D6/9

'cause the desert had turned to sea

                     Em                      D6/9

there were plants and birds and rocks and things

                  Em                      D6/9

there were sand and hills and rings

       Em                                D6/9

The ocean is a desert with its life underground

               Em                   D6/9

and the perfect disguise above

 Em                             D6/9

Under the cities lies a heart made of ground

             Em                         D6/9

but the humans will give no love

 

Chorus

 

End on Em
