Childhood living                              is easy to do

Am (2)                   C (1½)  D (½) / G - - - / Gsus4 - - G / D - Dsus2 - / D - C - /

    The things you wanted               I bought them for      you

  Bm (2)    G   Gsus4 (½) G (½)    Bm                    / G - - - / Gsus4 - G Gsus4 /

Graceless lady,                     you know who I am,

Am (2)                   C (1½)  D (½) / G - - - / Gsus4 - - G / D - Dsus2 - / D - - - /

You know I can't let you       slide through my                 hands

 

Chorus 1:

Am (2)        C (1½)  D (½) G                F             C (1½)   Bm (½)

        Wild horses              couldn't drag me away

Am (2)                C (1½)  D (½) G                F             C (2)

        Wild, wild horses             couldn't drag me away

 

Bm (2)                   G   Gsus4 (½) G (½)    Bm             / G - - - / Gsus4 - G Gsus4 /

     I watched you suffer                        a dull, aching pain

Am (2)                 C (1½)  D (½) / G - - - / Gsus4 - - G / D - Dsus2 - / D - C - /

       Now you decided                   to show me the         same

Bm (2)                 G   Gsus4 (½) G (½) Bm              / G - - - / Gsus4 - G Gsus4 /

      No sweeping exits                           or offstage lines

Am (2)                      C (1½)  D (½) / G - - - / Gsus4 - - G / D - Dsus2 - / D - - - /

   Can make me feel bitter                 or treat you           unkind

 

Chorus 1

Bm (2)           G   Gsus4 (½) G (½)    Bm               / G - - - / Gsus4 - G Gsus4 / 

    I know I dreamed you                      a sin and a lie,

Am (2)              C (1½)  D (½) / G - - - / Gsus4 - - G / D - Dsus2 - / D - C - /

     I have my freedom           but I don't have much   time

Bm (2)                     G   Gsus4 (½) G (½)   Bm            / G - - - / Gsus4 - G Gsus4 /

      Faith has been broken                    tears must be cried,

Am (2)                C (1½)  D (½) / G - - - / Gsus4 - - G / D - Dsus2 - / D - - - /

    Let's do some living                   after we                 die

Am (2)        C (1½)  D (½) G                F             C (1½)   Bm (½)

        Wild horses              couldn't drag me away

Am (2)                C (1½)  D (½) G         F                       C (2)

         Wild, wild horses             We'll ride them someday
