Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Go Fishing  Roger Waters

[Em]   [Em7]    [C]  [D]  [Dadd9]        [Bm7]We set out in the Spring =
With a trunkful of books about everything.[D]
[Bm7]About solar devices
And how nice natural childb[D]irth is.
[Cmaj7/E]We cut down some trees and trailed our ideals
Through the fore[B7]st glade.
[Cmaj7/E]We dammed up the stream and the kids cooled their heels
In the fi[B7]shing pool we made.
[Em]We held hands and we exchan[Em7]ged bands
And we pr[C]actically lived [Cmaj7]off the la[D]nd.
[Bm7]You adopted a fox cub
Whose mother was somebody's coat.[D]
[Bm7]You fed him by hand, then snuggled him down
In the [D]grandfather bed, while I wrote.
[Cmaj7/E]And we grew our own maize
And I only occasionally went int[B7]o town
[Cmaj7/E]To stock up on antibiotics
And shells for the shotgu[B7]n that I kept around.
[Em]I told the kids stories while you worked[Em7] your loom
And the su[C]n went down sooner[Cmaj7] each day.[D]
G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x)
Bm7 D (2x)
Cmaj7/E B7 (2x)
[Bm7]Then the leaves all fell down,
And the crops all turned brown.  It was over.[D]
[Bm7]As the first snowflakes fell
I realized all was not well i[D]n the camp.
[Cmaj7/E]The kids caught bronchitis,
The space heater ran out of diesel,[B7]
One [Cmaj7/E]weekend a friend from the east
(Rot his soul) stole your heart.[B7]
[Em]I said, =D2Fuck it then, take the kids bac[Em7]k to town,
[C]Maybe I'll se[Cmaj7]e you around.[D]=D3[Dadd9]
G Em7/F# Em Em7 C Cmaj7 D Dadd9 (2x)
And so le[G]aving all [Em7/F#]our hope[Em]s and dr[Em7]eams
C Cmaj7 D =
To the wind and the rain,
Dadd9 G Em7/F# =
Taking only our stash,
Left our li[Em]tter and trash[Em7]
And [C]set out =[Cmaj7]
D Dadd9 G (etc. to fade)
On the road again.
