    Wild Horses

    The Rolling Stones


    Intro:  / G - - - / - - - - / Am7 - - - / - - - - /

                / G - - - - / Gsus4 - G - / Am7 - - - / - - - - /

                / G - - - / - - - - /

     

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

    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

     

    Solo:  / F9 - - - / - - - - / C - - - / - - - - /

              / F9 - - - / - - - - / C - - - / - - D - /

              / G - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - - - - /

     

    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

     

    Chorus 2:

    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
