go fishing Roger Waters
Date: Thu, 30 Oct 1997 06:12:35 -0500 (EST) Subject: CRD "Go Fishing" by Roger Waters CRD "Go Fishing" by Roger Waters Go Fishing from Roger Waters The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking Transcribed by D. Nadelberg The album version is very densely arranged and orchistrated, so this is not ecessarily a very pared down approximation I worked out for acoustic. No sound effects or talking, I=D5m afraid. I have tried to compensate. In the progression which begins with the G, hitting all those chords nice and hard and letting them ring out makes them sound a bit like bells. Play it just like the crashing progression from In the Flesh off The Wall. Also, I toggle to Dadd9 and back for all my end-of-the-verse Ds, to great effect. This is my first submission. Ideas, comments, etc, let's talk about it Intro: Em Em7 C D (Dadd9) Bm7 We set out in the Spring = D With a trunkful of books about everything. Bm7 About solar devices D And how nice natural childbirth is. Cmaj7/E We cut down some trees and trailed our ideals B7 Through the forest glade. Cmaj7/E We dammed up the stream and the kids cooled their heels B7 In the fishing pool we made. Em Em7 We held hands and we exchanged bands C Cmaj7 D And we practically lived off the land. Bm7 You adopted a fox cub D Whose mother was somebody's coat. Bm7 You fed him by hand, then snuggled him down D In the grandfather bed, while I wrote. Cmaj7/E And we grew our own maize B7 And I only occasionally went into town Cmaj7/E To stock up on antibiotics B7 And shells for the shotgun that I kept around. Em Em7 I told the kids stories while you worked your loom C Cmaj7 D And the sun went down sooner each day. Bridge: G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x) Bm7 D (2x) Cmaj7/E B7 (2x) Bm7 Then the leaves all fell down, D And the crops all turned brown. It was over. Bm7 As the first snowflakes fell D I realized all was not well in the camp. Cmaj7/E The kids caught bronchitis, B7 The space heater ran out of diesel, Cmaj7/E One weekend a friend from the east B7 (Rot his soul) stole your heart. Em Em7 I said, =D2Fuck it then, take the kids back to town, C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 Maybe I'll see you around.=D3 G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x) G Em7/F# Em Em7 And so leaving all our hopes and dreams C Cmaj7 D = To the wind and the rain, Dadd9 G Em7/F# = Taking only our stash, Em Em7 Left our litter and trash C Cmaj7 And set out = D Dadd9 G (etc. to fade) On the road again.
