.            Em                       D9/6
On the first part of the journey
.          Em                  D9/6
I was lookin at all the life
.                    Em                           D9/6
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
.                   Em                      D9/6
There were sand and hills and rings

.       Em                           D9/6
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
.            Em              D9/6
and the sky with no clouds
.      Em                              D9/6
the heat was hot and the ground was dry
.           Em                 D9/6
but the air was full of sound

.       Em                                         D9/6
I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
.         Em                           D9/6
it felt good to be out of the rain

.          Em                     D9/6
in the desert you can remember your name

.                    Em                      D9/6
‘cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain

Em               D9/6
la la la la     la la  la la la
Em     D9/6
la la la
Em               D9/6
la la la la     la la  la la la
Em     D9/6

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






.       Em                                         D9/6
I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
.         Em                           D9/6
it felt good to be out of the rain
.          Em                     D9/6
in the desert you can remember your name
.                    Em                      D9/6
‘cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
Em               D9/6
la la la la     la la  la la la
Em     D9/6
la la la
Em               D9/6
la la la la     la la  la la la
Em     D9/6

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 it’s life underground
and the perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
but the humans will give no love
