America - A Horse With No Name

"Horse With No Name" lyrics
by America (folk rock band)

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

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 la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la…

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

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 la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la…

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

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 la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la...

America - Horse With No Name

     A Horse With No Name” is a song written by Dewey Bunnell and originally recorded by the band America.  It was the band's first and most successful single, released in early 1972, topping the charts in several countries.  It was certified “gold” by the Recording Industry Association of America.     Despite (or, perhaps, because of) the song being banned by some U.S. radio stations (including one in Kansas City) because of supposed drug references, the song ascended to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and the album quickly reached platinum status.  The song did chart earlier in the Netherlands (reaching number 11) and the UK (reaching number 3) than it actually did in the United States.  The interpretation of the song as a drug reference comes from the fact that “horse” is a common slang term for heroin.
