Octopus

Syd Barrett

 BBsus4G5C7
 Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
 A
you have no word
 BBsus4
 trip, trip to a dream dragon
 BBsus4
 hide your wings in a ghost tower
 BBsus4B
 sails crackiling at ev'ry plate we break 
 BBb
 cracked by scattered needles 
 A
 little minute gong
 A
 coughs and clears his throat
 A
 madam you see before you stand
 A
 hey ho, never be still
 A
 the old original favourite gran
 A
 grasshoppers green herbarian band
 AF#7(addF
 and the tune they play in us confide...
 BBsus4G5C7
 so trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
 A
you have no word
 F#F#sus4
 Please leave us here
 F#F#sus4F#sus4(addABsus4
 close our eyes to the octopus       ride!
 F#F#sus4
 Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
F# F#sus4 F# G(3rd fret)
isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood
 AbAbsus4
 twenty even less to me than I thought
 AbAbsus4
with a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds
 AbAbsus4Bsus4(addBb
 clover honey pots and mystic shining feed... 
 BBsus4
 well, the madcap laughed at the man on the border
 G5C7
 hey ho, huff the talbot
 BBsus4
 Cheetah he cried shouted kangaroo
 BBsus4
so through their tree they cried
 F#F#sus4
 Please leave us here
 F#F#sus4F#sus4(addaBsus4
 close our eyes to the octopus        ride!
 BBsus4
 The madcap laughed at the man on the border
 G5C7
 hey ho, huff the talbot
 BBsus4
 the winds they blew and the leaves did wag
 BBsus4
 and they'll never put me in their bag
 BBsus4
 the seas will reach and always see
 BBsus4
 so high you go, so low you creep
 BBsus4
 the winds it blows in tropical heat
 BBsus4
 the drones they throng on mossy seats
 BBsus4
 the squeaking door will always creep
 BBsus4
 two up, two down we'll never meet
 BBsus4
so merrily trip for good my side
 F#F#sus4
 Please leave us here
F# F#sus4 F#sys4(add A) Bsus4
close our eyes to the octopus ride!
