A Horse With No Name

America

Em ------  D9/6 ------    Em9 ------    Dmaj9 ------


 EmD9/6
On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was 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

 Em9Dmaj9
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 ...

 EmD9/6
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

 Em9Dmaj9
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
La, la ...

 EmD9/6
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 was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

 Em9Dmaj9
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
La, la ...

There's no chord diagram ...what's up with that?!?
dcoons (report comment to admin):
Strumming pattern is DD DUDU on the Em then DUDU UDU on the Dadd9.
plosen60 (report comment to admin):
The "D9/6" should be D6/9 instead (a.k.a. D6add9) with pattern 200200 from low E to high E. Notes F#-A-D-A-B-E.
plosen60 (report comment to admin):
Suggestion for Dmaj9 is 000220, which is actually "Dmaj9 no3rd"

I found that A6 works better... Em-A6 try it and see..
