Wish you were here   Pink Floyd







From: Andreas P Sjolund 
Subject: Tab: Wish You Were Here , Pink Floyd

    This is an improvement of what's already at the archive, I fixed th
Intro part, which had many errors, and added the solo, which was not in
the original:

			Wish You Were Here
			 by Pink Floyd
Sorry for the "rag-tag" look of this. I got part of it from Alt.guitar, and
did the rest myself. Oh well, here it is....

C                        D
So, so ya think you can tell
             Am                   G                         D
heaven from hell, blue skies from pain, can you tell a green field
                  C                    Am                       G
from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do ya think ya can tell?
                    C                       D                     Am
did they get you to trade, your hero's for ghosts, hot ashes for trees
                G                           D                 C
hot air for a cool breeze, cold comfort for change, did you exchange, 
                      Am                          G
a walk on part in the war, for a lead role in a cage?

C                               D
How I wish, how I wish you were here,
          Am                                  G                  D
Were just two lost soles simming in a fish bowl, year after year,
                                C                                Am
Running over the same old ground, but have we found the same old fears,
               G
wish you were here

(guitar solo, played over intro fig.)
(This second guitar solo is almost identical to the first, with very
slight variations on the same basic:
--------10
--10/12
and
--------12
--12/14--
themes!)
