OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life

The men star right, roll it one time tonight
Left allemande and weave the ring
I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
Swing your lady round and promenade
In the desert you can remember your name
Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

The heads (sides) promenade travel half way go round
Walk in and square thru go 4
Go all the way you do the right & left thru
You veer left and ferris wheel
The centers square thru travel 3/4 round
Swing that corner, promenade
In the desert you can remember your name
Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

A Horse With No Name
 
 

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

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

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 its 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

Lyrics by Dewey Bunnell.
Recorded by America.
