From: cscsj@lux.latrobe.edu.au ( Junacko)

 

The original version of this is 3 guitars.

 

 

 

Acoustic 1 ("Nashville tuning"- low 3 strings an octave up)

 

this is the one which starts the song off, there are no bass

 

strings which gives it that high sound. After the intro it

 

mainly plays harmonics

 

 

 

Acoustic 2 (Open G- D G D G B D)

 

this is the main acoustic throughout the song. If I get some

 

requests I will put this part down.

 

 

 

Electric 3 (Standard tuning)

 

this is Mick Taylor's classic backing and superb solo. If I get

 

_lots_ of requests I might summon the energy to tab the solo, if

 

I get hundreds I might even tab the whole part.

 

 

 

For now, I will just do CRD. Despite having 3 guitars on the original

 

recording, this one sounds surprisingly full with just 1 acoustic

 

(standard tuning) and voice.

 

 

 

Intro:

 

G Am7 G Gsus Am7 G

 

 

 

 

 

Bm G Gsus Bm G Gsus

 

1. Childhood living is easy to do

The things you wanted I brought them for you

 

Bm G Gsus Bm G Gsus

 

Graceless lady you know who I am

 

Am G C D G Gsus G D Dsus2 D

 

You know I can't let you slide through my hands

 

 

 

Am G C D G F G C Bm

 

Ch. Wild horses couldn't drag me a- way

 

Am G C D G F G C

 

Wild wild horses couldn't drag me a- way

 

 

 

2. I watched you suffer a dull aching pain

 

Now you've decided to show me the same

 

No sweeping exits or off-stage lines

 

Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

 

 

 

Ch. Wild horses couldn't drag me away

 

C(VIII)

 

Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away

 

 

 

[guitar break]

 

Fsus2(VIII) C(VIII) x 3

 

D G

 

 

 

 

 

3. I know I've dreamed you a sin and a lie

 

I have my freedom but I don't have much time

 

Faith has been broken, tears must be cried

 

Let's do some living, after we'll die

 

 

 

Ch. Wild horses couldn't drag me away

 

Wild wild horses we'll ride them some day.

Intro:

 

Gi Am7 Gi Am7 Gi

 

 

Verse:

 

Bm Giii

Childhood living

 

Bm Giii

Is easy to do

 

Am7 Cii

The things you wanted,

 

Gii C6

I brought them for you

 

 

Graceless lady,

You know who I am,

You know I can't let you,

Slide through my hands

 

 

Chorus:

 

Bm Am7 Cii

Wild Horses,

 

Bm Am7 Gii F Ci

Couldn't drag me away,

 

Wild, wild horses,

Couldn't drag me away...

 

 

I watched you suffer

A dull, aching pain

Now you decided

To show me the same

 

 

No sweeping exits

Or off-stage lines,

Can make me feel bitter,

Or treat you unkind

 

 

(Refrain)

 

 

I know I dreamed you

A sin and a lie,

I have my freedom,

But I don't have much time

 

 

Faith has been broken,

Tears must be cried,

Let's do some living,

After we die...

 

 

(refrain)

 

 

 

 

Here are the chords:

 

Gi 320003 Am7 575555 Bm 799777

Gii 355433 Cii 875558 F 133211

C6 x35555 Am9 575587 Ci x32010

 

Giii 7 10 9 7 8 7

 

In the third verse, you can replace the Am7 with an Am9. (Although

now that I listen to it, I think the ninth is actually coming from

the lead guitar. But it still sounds nice to use Am9 for a little

variety, especially with only one guitar)

 

I would appreciate any suggestions or corrections.

I've fooled with the song some. Not real sure about the exact

placement of these chords. Trust your ear.

Wild Horses

 

by The Rolling Stones

transcription by: Ken Friedson and Ed Finegold

 

Intro:

There are two guitar parts at the intro.

The rhythm is the same as the verse,

the lead is built off of the Bm pentatonic, the notes are:

 

(fret/string)

10/1,8/1,7/1,5/1

 

Listen to it, it'll take about two seconds to figure it out.

 

Verse 1:

 

Bm G Bm G

I heard living is easy to do

 

Am C D G D C

the pains you wanted, I bought them for you

 

note: the D and the last C are transitional chords, a quick

down-up-down-up and then change to the next chord

 

Bm G Bm G

Graceless lady, you know I am

 

Am C D G D

You know I can't let you, slide through my hands

 

Chorus:

 

Am C D G F C D

Wild Horses, couldn't drag me away

 

Am C D G F C

Wild Horses, couldn't drag me away

 

(again those D chords are transitional)

 

 

Verse 2:

 

Bm G Bm G

I watched you suffer, a dull aching pain

 

Am C D G D C

Now you've decided, to show me the same

 

Bm G Bm G

Those sweeping exits, whoa off stage lines

 

Am C D G D

could make me be bitter, and treat you unkind

 

 

Chorus

 

 

Verse 3:

 

Bm G Bm G

I know I dreamed you, a sin and a lie

 

Am C D G D C

I have my freedom, but I don't have much time

 

Bm G Bm G

Faith has been broken, tears must be cried

 

Am C D G D

Let's do some living, after we die

 

 

Chorus

last line sung as:

Wild horses, I'm gonna ride them some day

 

Either fade it out or end with a: D(transitional) G

 

 

Note: A quick listen to the album will show you what I mean

about those transitional chords. Also, I did my best to

show where the changes fall, but as you play it you'll

get the nuances. Some of the changes just hang a bit longer

than others.

Glad I could give some back to the family.
