Em   ------     D6/9   ------   Em9  ------    Dmaj9  ------
I like to strike the base note on a downstroke on the first beat followed by the bottom four strings. Alternating up and down on Em and Em9, up only on D6/9 and Dmaj9 Em [D6/9] On the first part of the journey I was lookin at all the life There were plants and birds and rocks and things There were sand and hills and rings The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz and the sky with no clouds the heat was hot and the ground was dry but the air was full of sound

Chorus

Em9 D7M9

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 la lalala la la la la la 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

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
