[Verse 1]

       Em                D6/9
On the first part of the journey
       Em                D6/9
I was lookin at all the life
            Em                 D6/9
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
            Em                D6/9
There were sand and hills and rings

       Em                  D6/9
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
         Em           D6/9
and the sky with no clouds
     Em                   D6/9
the heat was hot and the ground was dry
         Em              D6/9
but the air was full of sound


[Chorus]

      Em9                         Dmaj9
I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
        Em9                   Dmaj9
it felt good to be out of the rain
       Em9           Dmaj9
in the desert you can remember your name
              Em9                Dmaj9
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
   Em9    Dmaj9         
La la   la la lala la lala   
Em9    Dmaj9         
la la la 


[Verse 2]

       Em                D6/9
After two days in the desert sun
    Em                D6/9
my skin began to turn red
       Em              D6/9
After three days in the desert fun
       Em                D6/9
I was looking at a river bed
        Em                D6/9
And the story it told of a river that flowed
       Em                 D6/9
made me sad to think it was dead


[Chorus]

      Em9                         Dmaj9
I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
        Em9                   Dmaj9
it felt good to be out of the rain
       Em9           Dmaj9
in the desert you can remember your name
              Em9                Dmaj9
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
   Em9    Dmaj9         
la la   la la lala la lala   
Em9    Dmaj9         
la la la 


[Verse 3]

       Em                D6/9
After nine days I let the horse run free
            Em                D6/9
'cause the desert had turned to sea
            Em                  D6/9 
there were plants and birds and rocks and things
             Em                D6/9
there were sand and hills and rings
      Em                        D6/9
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
          Em              D6/9
and the perfect disguise above
            Em           D6/9
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
         Em                 D6/9
but the humans will give no love


[Chorus]

      Em9                         Dmaj9
I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
        Em9                   Dmaj9
it felt good to be out of the rain
       Em9           Dmaj9
in the desert you can remember your name
              Em9                Dmaj9
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
   Em9    Dmaj9         
la la   la la lala la lala   
Em9    Dmaj9         
la la la

excellent tab. but if you want it to sound even better, instead of using a D9/6. i would use this chord

e|-0-
B|-0-
G|-2- -ring finger-
D|-4- -pinky finger-
A|-x- -muted with index-
E|-2- -index finger-

it sounds so much better
Good tab either way.
