"A Horse with No Name" is a song by the folk rock band America, written by Dewey Bunnell. It was the band's first and most successful single, released in late 1971. Dewey Bunnell wanted to capture the sensation of the hot, dry desert, as he remembered his childhood travels through the Arizona and New Mexico desert when his family lived at Vandenberg Air Force Base. Bunnell has explained that "A Horse with No Name" was "a metaphor for a vehicle to get away from life's confusion into a quiet, peaceful place".

In the midst of life's confusion, the solace and joy of old friends and beautiful memories always transport people to a state of peaceful bliss!!!

Feedback is much appreciated. Thank you.

Of all things I just worked up enough to get by with my trio last week--for me the rhythm makes it--it has those crazy --suspended seconds or or fourths--depends on who you asks ha ha--we do it in D minor-I guess I'll go check your stuff

I always thought he had plenty of time to pick out a name on that long trip across the desert! ;)
I loved America even though their lyrics were kinda spacey.

My critique would have you changing your volume (dynamics) and adding these variations of the Em chord.
