Horse With No Name Chord Chart
By America

INTRO: Em  D6/9  Em  D6/9

VERSE:

            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    lalalala  la la   la la la 

 
VERSE:

After two days in the desert sun 
my skin began to turn red 
After three days in the desert fun 
I was looking at a river bed 
And the story it told of a river that flowed 
made me sad to think it was dead 

 
CHORUS:

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name 
it felt good to be out of the rain 
in the desert you can remember your name 
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain 
la la la    lalalala  la la   la la la 
 

VERSE:

After nine days I let the horse run free 
'cause the desert had turned to sea 
there were plants and birds and rocks and things 
there were sand and hills and rings 
The ocean is a desert with its life underground 
and the perfect disguise above 
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground 
but the humans will give no love
