Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Opel  Syd Barrett







On a [A]distant shore, [E]miles from land
[G]Stands the ebony totem in ebony sand,[D]
A [A]dream in a mist of [E]grey
[B]On a far distant [A]shore
[A]The pebble, it stood alone[E]
[G]And driftwood lies half buried[D]
[A]Warm, shallow water sweeps [E]shells
[B]So the cockles [A]shine
[A]A bare, winding carcas [E]stalk
[G]Shimmers as flies scoop up meat[D]
[A]An empty way,
[B]Dry Tears[A]
[A]Crisp flax squeaks   Tall [E]reeds
Make a[G] circle of grey[D]
In a [A]summer way, around man
[B] so don't [A]drown

[A]I'm try[A5addG#]ing
[A5addF#]To find [A5]you

I'm living
I'm trying
