Chords with lyrics
The Painted Desert (chords) 10,000 Maniacs [ Jerome Augustyniak/Natalie Merchant ] This is a beautiful song from their first big album, “In My Tribe” – it’s one of my favorites from this album and from the band in general. I was surprised to see that this hasn’t been posted before. The word “sure” in “when I’m sure” gets a higher G+G chord (on the 3rd fret). I think this is pretty close but if you have corrections please let me know! Chords: C/G: 332010 G: 320033 G+G (3rd fret): 355433 Em: 022000 D: 000232 Dm: 000231 F: 133211 Am: 003320
Intro: C/GC/G G+G Chorus: C/GC/G G+G The Painted Desert can wait till summer. C/GC/G We've played this game of just imagine long enough. G+G Wait till summer?

Verse 1: C/GC/G G+G C/GC/G G+G Is a cactus blooming there in every roadside stand C/GC/G G+G E minorEm D MajorD where the big deal is cowboy gear sewn in Japan? (back to chorus) Verse 2: C/GC/G G+G C/GC/G G+G Is a cactus blooming there upon the Northern rim C/GC/G G+G E minorEm D MajorD or in the ruins of the Hopi mesa dens?
Bridge: DmDm FF C majorC A minorAm You met a new friend in the Canyon, or so you wrote. C majorC A minorAm C majorC A minorAm On a blanket in the cooling sand you and your friend agreed that D MajorD FF G+G the stars were so many there they seemed to overlap. (back to chorus) Verse 3: C/GC/G G+G C/GC/G G+G Was a cactus blooming there as you watched the Native boy? C/GC/G G+G E minorEm D MajorD In a Flagstaff trailer court, you wrote the line: C/GC/G G+G C majorC G+G "He kicked a tumbleweed and his mother called him home C/GC/G G+G E minorEm D MajorD where the Arizona moon met the Arizona sun." C/GC/G G+G C/GC/G G+G I wanted to be there by May at the latest time. C/GC/G G+G E minorEm D MajorD Isn't that the plan we had or have you changed your mind? C/GC/G G+G C/GC/G G+G I haven't read a word from you since Phoenix or Tucson. C/GC/G G+G C majorC D MajorD C/GC/G April is over now, will you tell me how long before I can be there?
