Watching Tv

Roger Waters

 GEm7
We were watching TV,     Watching TV
 GEm7
We were watching TV,     Watching TV

 Cadd9C/BA7D
 GEm7
In Tiananmen Square,     Lost my baby there
 GEm7
My yellow rose,          In her bloodstained clothes
 Cadd9A7
She was a short order pastry chef
 Cadd9A7
In a Dim Sum dive on the Yangtze tideway
 Cadd9G/B
She had shiny hair    
 A7D
She was the daughter of an engineer 
 GEm7
Won't you shed a tear,   For my yellow rose
 GEm7
My yellow rose,          In her bloodstained clothes
 Cadd9A7
She had perfect breasts, She had high hopes
 Cadd9A7
She had almond eyes,     She had yellow thighs
 CC/BA7D
She was a student of philosophy 
 GG/F#Em7
Won't you grieve with me, for my yellow rose,
 GG/F#Em7D
Shed a tear,             For her bloodstained clothes
 GG/F#Em7
She had shiny hair,      She had perfect breasts
 Cadd9C/BA7D
She had high hopes,      She had almond eyes 
 GG/F#
She had yellow thighs
 Em7D
She was the daughter of an engineer 
 GC
So get out your pistols, Get out your stones
 GC
Get out your knives,     Cut them to the bone
 GG/F#Em7
They are the lackeys of the grocer's machine
 GC
They built the dark satanic mills 
 GC
That manufacture hell on earth 
 GG/F#Em7
They bought the front row seats on Calvary
 CD
They are irrelevant to me  

**D **Ddim5
And I grieve for my sister

People of China
Do not forget do not forget
The children who died for you
Long live the Republic
Did we do anything after this
I've a feeling we did
 GEm7
We were watching TV,     Watching TV
 GEm7
We were watching TV,     Watching TV
 Cadd9A7
She wore a white bandanna that said 'Freedom now'
 Cadd9
She thought the Great Wall of China
 A7
Would come tumbling down
 GG/F#
 She was a student
 Em7D
Her father was an engineer
 GEm7
Won't you shed a tear,   For my yellow rose
 GEm7
My yellow rose,          In her bloodstained clothes
 Cadd9A7
Her grandpa fought old Chiang Kai-shek
 Cadd9A7
That no-good low-down dirty rat
 CC/B
Who used to order his troops
 A7D
To fire on the women and children

Imagine that imagine that
 GEm7
And in the spring of '48
 GEm7
Mao Tse-tung got quite irate
 GG/F#Em7
And he kicked that old dictator Chiang
 D
Out of the state of China
 GEm7
Chiang Kai-shek came down in Formosa
 GA7
 And they armed the island of Quemoy
 G
And the shells were flying across the China Sea
 Em7CC/BA7D
And they turned Formosa into a shoe factory called Taiwan
 GCadd9
And she is different from Cro-Magnon man
 GCadd9
She's different from Anne Boleyn
 GG/F#Em7
She is different from the Rosenbergs
 D
And from the unknown Jew
 GCadd9G
 She is different from the unknown Nicaraguan
 Cadd9GG/F#
 Half superstar half victim  
 Em7Cadd9D
She's a victor star conceptually new 
 GCadd9
 And she is different from the Dodo
 GCadd9
 And from the Kankanbono
 GG/F#Em7
 She is different from the Aztec
 D
And from the Cherokee
 GCadd9
She's everybody's sister
 GCadd9
She's symbolic of our failure
 GG/F#Em7
She's the one in fifty million
 Cadd9D
Who can help us to be free  
 G
Because she died on TV
