Go Fishing

Roger Waters

 EmEm7CDDadd9Bm7
                    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.
 EmEm7
 We held hands and we exchanged bands
 CCmaj7D
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.
 EmEm7
 I told the kids stories while you worked your loom
 CCmaj7D
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. 
 EmEm7
 I said, =D2Fuck it then, take the kids back to town,
 CCmaj7DDadd9
 Maybe I'll see you around.=D3 
G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x)
 GEm7/F#EmEm7
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,
 EmEm7
Left our litter and trash 
 CCmaj7
And set out = 
D Dadd9 G (etc. to fade)
On the road again.
