When The Tigers Broke Free

Pink Floyd

 CGsusC
 It was just before dawn one miserable morning in black forty-four
 C
 When the forward commander was told to sit tight,
 F/CC
 When they asked that his men be withdrawn
 C
 And the generals gave thanks, as the other ranks
 GsusC
 Held back the enemy tanks for a while
 CGsus
 And the Anzio Bridgehead was held for the price
 C
 Of a few hundred ordinary lives
 CGCG
 And kind old King George sent Mother a note when he heard that Father was gone
 CGC
 It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll with gold leaf and all
 C
 And I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs hidden away
 CGsus
 And my eyes still grow damp to remember
 C
 His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp
 CGC
 It was dark all around, there was frost on the ground
 G
 When the Tigers broke free
 C
 And no-one survived from the Royal Fusiliers, Company "C"
 GCGC
 They were all left behind,  most of them dead  -  the rest of them dying
 CGC
 And that's how the high command took my daddy from me
