Quiet Desperation lyrics and chords, Christy Moore, Written By, Floyd Red Crow Westerman.

C      D 
My soul is in the mountain, My heart is in the land 
F   G   C 
I'm lost here in the city , There's so much I don't understand. 
C    D     F       G      C 
There's quiet desperation coming over me, Coming over me. 
G  F  C  G   F       C 
I've got to leave I can't stay another day, There's an emptiness inside of me, 
G  F C   G       G7
I can't bear the loneliness out here, There's another place I've got to be. 
F    C 
Another Place I’ve got to be 
 
 
I long for you, Dakota, The smell of sweet grass on the plain 
 
I see too much meanness , And I feel too much pain. 
 
And there's quiet desperation coming over me, Coming over me. 
 
I've got to leave I can't stay another day, There's an emptiness inside of me 
 
I can't bear the loneliness out here, There's another place I've got to be, 
 
Another place I’ve got to be

I've offered this song on two previous albums
but for the sake of two min. 30 seconds I want to include
this rendition here from Theatre Ryale Drury Lane
London in 1996, it illustrates  an element of my
work  for which I have deep gratitude, to be part
of a song that for three minutes stills the night,
quietens the crowd as together we deeply feel the
loneliness imbued in the words of Floyd Westerman
Quiet Desperation, From The Box Set. Christy Moore
