    A beautiful American tune, sang by an incredible Irish musician,
    I couldn't find a version on here, so have tabbed out how I play
    it, it's worth watching how Christy Moore sings and picks this tune,
                 - flatwound -

                         QUIET DESPERATION



        C                             Dm
    My soul is in the mountain,   my heart is in the land
         F                G                C
    I'm lost here in the city, There's so much I don't understand
                C               Dm                  F     G   C 
    There's a quiet desperation,  Coming over me, Coming over me
                  G            F            C   
    I've got to leave I can't stay another day
                  G      F           C
    There's an emptiness   inside of me
             G          F            C
    I can't bear the loneliness out here
  G                                   F                F               C
    There's another place I've got to be, .. Another place I've got to be




        C                                Dm
    I long for you Dakota The smell of sweet grass on the plain
       F              G             C
    I see too much meanness, And I feel too much pain
                    C               Dm                   F     G   C
    And there's a quiet desperation,   Coming over me, Coming over me
                  G            F            C
    I've got to leave I can't stay another day
                  G      F           C
    There's an emptiness   inside of me
             G         F             C
    I can't bear the loneliness out here
  G                                   F                F               C
    There's another place I've got to be, .. Another place I've got to be

Nice one mate. Just a suggestion, a Dm sounds better than a D chord
