Intro:
 GiAm7GiAm7Gi
                          Verse:
 BmGiii
      Childhood living
 BmGiii
      Is easy to do
 Am7Cii
      The things you wanted,
 GiiC6
      I brought them for you
Graceless lady,
You know who I am,
You know I can't let you,
Slide through my hands
Chorus:
 BmAm7Cii
            Wild Horses,
 BmAm7GiiFCi
            Couldn't drag me away,
Wild, wild horses,
Couldn't drag me away...
I watched you suffer
A dull, aching pain
Now you decided
To show me the same
No sweeping exits
Or off-stage lines,
Can make me feel bitter,
Or treat you unkind
(Refrain)
I know I dreamed you
A sin and a lie,
I have my freedom,
But I don't have much time
Faith has been broken,
Tears must be cried,
Let's do some living,
After we die...
(refrain)
Here are the chords:
Gi 320003 Am7 575555 Bm 799777
Gii 355433 Cii 875558 F 133211
C6 x35555 Am9 575587 Ci x32010
Giii 7 10 9 7 8 7
In the third verse, you can replace the Am7 with an Am9. (Although
now that I listen to it, I think the ninth is actually coming from
the lead guitar. But it still sounds nice to use Am9 for a little
variety, especially with only one guitar)
I would appreciate any suggestions or corrections.

I've fooled with the song some. Not real sure about the exact
placement of these chords. Trust your ear.

Wild Horses
by The Rolling Stones
transcription by: Ken Friedson and Ed Finegold
Intro:
There are two guitar parts at the intro.
The rhythm is the same as the verse,
the lead is built off of the Bm pentatonic, the notes are:
(fret/string)
10/1,8/1,7/1,5/1
Listen to it, it'll take about two seconds to figure it out.
Verse 1:
 BmGBmG
 I heard living is easy to do
 AmCDGDC
 the pains you wanted, I bought them for you  
note: the D and the last C are transitional chords, a quick
down-up-down-up and then change to the next chord
 BmGBmG
 Graceless lady, you know I am
 AmCDGD
 You know I can't let youslide through my hands
Chorus:
 AmCDGFCD
 Wild Horsescouldn't drag me away 
 AmCDGFC
 Wild Horsescouldn't drag me away
(again those D chords are transitional)
Verse 2:
 BmGBmG
 I watched you suffer, a dull aching pain
 AmCDGDC
 Now you've decidedto show me the same 
 BmGBmG
 Those sweeping exits, whoa off stage lines
 AmCDGD
 could make me be bitterand treat you unkind
Chorus
Verse 3:
 BmGBmG
 I know I dreamed you, a sin and a lie
 AmCDGDC
 I have my freedombut I don't have much time 
 BmGBmG
 Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
 AmCDGD
 Let's do some livingafter we die
Chorus
last line sung as:
Wild horses, I'm gonna ride them some day
Either fade it out or end with a: D(transitional) G
Note: A quick listen to the album will show you what I mean
about those transitional chords. Also, I did my best to
show where the changes fall, but as you play it you'll
get the nuances. Some of the changes just hang a bit longer
than others.
