On the first part of the journey

6   6    -6   -6   6  -6   6   -6

I was looking at all the life

     6       6       -6       6      -6      6     -6       -6      -6

There were plants and birds and rocks and things

    6      6     -6     6     -6    6      -6

There was sand and hills and rings


 6      -6     -6   6  -6    -6  6  -6   -6   6   -6

The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz

-6     6    -6     -6    6    -6

And the sky with no clouds

   6     -6     6    -6    -6     6       -6       6     -6

The heat was hot and the ground was dry

 -6    6   -6   6     -6   6     -6

But the air was full of sound

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name

5   6     -6    -6  -6   -6  -6   -6   6  5  

It felt good to be out of the ra-in

6    6     -6 -6    -6   -6    -6   6   -5      5        5     

In the desert you can remember your name

    6          6      -6    -6   -6   -6  -6     6    -5     5     5 

'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

After two days in the desert sun

My skin began to turn red

And 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


You see 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


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 a perfect disguise above

Under the cities lies a heart made of ground

But the humans will give no love


You see 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
