About this tab version
I made the chords in verses a little more accurate, added instrumental western interlude and corrected the chords in chorus. In the second chorus, the part with N.C. is acapella so nothing else is to be played. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No
Main riff 80 bpm

Music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne
Intro by Hugh Mc'Dowell


[Intro]
G C G D7 G

G    Bm7 Em  A
Wish  I  was
            Dsus4 D  G
a wild west he    -  ro


[Verse 1]
G             Em
  Sometimes I look up high
           Cmaj7
And then I think there might,
     Aadd9 A       Dsus4  D
Just be   a better li  -  fe


[Verse 2]
G           Em
  Away from all we know
               Cmaj7
That's where I wanna go
    Aadd9   A    Dsus4 D 
Out  on the wild si  -  de,


[Pre-Chorus]
G       D  Em
And wish I was


[Chorus]
   D7       G     G7   C    A7 Dsus4 D G
Oh oh oh oh oh, a wild west he -  -  - ro.
D        G             D       
Ride the range all the day
         Em           B
Till the first fading light
        C          G
Be with my western girl
          A7         D
Round the fire oh so bright
           G        D
I'd be the indians' friend
         Em         B
Let them live to be free
       C        G
Ridin' into the sunset
  Am   Cm    G  G7
I wish might be.


[Instrumental]
C7 G7 A7 G7 C7 D7


[Verse 3]
G             Em7  
 I'd ride the desert sands
                Cmaj7
And through the prairie lands
Aadd9    A          Dsus4 D
Tryin' to do what's   right


[Verse 4]
G                Em7    
 The folks would come to me
              Cmaj7
They'd say we need you here
    Aadd9    A         Dsus4 D  G D/F# Em
I'd stay there for the night,     


[Pre-Chorus]
Em7
   Oh I wish I was


[Chorus]
   D7       G     G7   C    A7 Dsus4 D G
Oh oh oh oh oh, a wild west he -  -  - ro.     
N.C. 
Ride the range all the day
N.C
Till the first fading light
N.C.
Be with my western girl
N.C.
Round the fire oh so bright
           G        D
I'd be the indians' friend
         Em         B
Let them live to be free
       C        G
Ridin' into the sunset
  Am   Cm    G   G7
I wish might be.

If you finger pick on the verses you can catch the Rich Tandy fills on the high E and B strings (g-f#-d) on the G and Em chords at beginning of verses. Nice Arrangement. TY
