Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd

          / Em7 - - - / - - - - / G - - - / - - - - /

          / Em7 - - - / - - - - / A7sus4 - - - / - - - - /

          / Em7 - - - / - - - - / A7sus4 - - - / - - - - /

Solo:  Repeat Intro, last G gets 2 measures

 

C                                   D/F#

So, so you think you can tell,

             Am                  G

Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain?

                                D                               C                         Am

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil?

                                     G

Do you think you can tell?

 

                                      C                               D/F#

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts,

                Am                           G                                            D

Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change,

                         C                                   Am                             G

And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

 

Repeat Intro, last G gets 2 measures

 

C                                                D

How I wish, how I wish you were here.

                 Am                                                   G                   

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

D/F#                                           C

Running over the same old ground, have we found

                    Am                            G

The same old fears?  Wish you were here.
