Ride On Chords | How To Play Ride On By Christy Moore On Guitar

Performance Notes For Ride On Chords

In this lesson your going to learn how to play Christy Moore’s classic Ride On from his 1984 album entitled “Ride On”.

Although the original has finger picking throughout you can play the song with a decent strumming pattern, which I also show you in the guitar lesson video…

So be sure to watch the lesson, as I go through both finger picking and strumming patterns.

Try and follow the video lesson as best as you can and if your stuck or have any questions, leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can…

The chords used are A Minor, F Major and G Major

Ride On Chords/Lyrics/Verse 

Am                                                 F
True you ride the finest horse, I've ever seen
G                                                Am
Standing 16 one or two with eyes wild and green
Am                                            F
You ride the horse so well hands light to the touch
G                                                             Am
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted too

Ride On Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

Am           F
Ride on, see you
G                                                             Am
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted too

Ride On Chords/Lyrics/Verse 

Am                                                F
When you ride into the night without a trace behind
G                                                Am
Run your claw along my gut, one last time
Am                                                     F
I turned to face an empty space, where you used to lie
G                                                                           Am
And look for the spark that lights the night through the teardrop in my eye

Ride On Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

Am           F
Ride on, see you
G                                                             Am
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted too

Am           F
Ride on, see you
G                                                             Am
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted too

Am           F
Ride on, see you
G                                                             Am
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted too
