-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a tab for the LIVE PERFORMANCE of the song.
There are a few versions available on youtube.

TUNING: D-A-D-E-A-d
CAPO: 8th fret

Same tuning as 'The Gardener', 'I Won't Be Found',
'Honey Won't You Let Me In' and more...
I prefer to tune my guitar to E-B-E-F#-B-E for these songs, which I find
easier to do by ear. Either way, same result.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------


INTRO/MIDDLE PLAY/ENDING:
This is how I play it. TMOE variates from show to show, of course.

LYRICS [album version]:

Oh, the blizzard's never seen the desert sands
I will set the tempo low in my commands
Come follow down the highway once trailed by my golden calf, oh
The blizzard's never seen the desert sands

And I will drive it like a shepherd to the sun
It's the easiest decision I have done
Come follow down the highway once trailed by my golden calf, oh
The blizzard's never seen the desert sands

And the bells up in the towers they will ring
And the frightened little choirs they will sing
They will tremble on their voices like it's from another shore, oh
The frightened little choirs they will sing

I will sit up in the saddle of the storm
I will ride across the sea I stand before
Though the people on the beaches weigh just nothing but themselves
I will sit up in the saddle of the storm

Oh, the blizzard's never seen the desert sands
And I never understood a written plan
I have set my house on fire 'cause I don't need it anymore
Oh, the blizzard's never seen the desert sands
