Southampton Dock

Pink Floyd

SOUTHAMPTON DOCK
Pink Floyd
(Waters)
 F
 They disembarked in 45,
 Bb
 And no-one spoke and no-one smiled
 CF
 There were too many spaces in the line.
Gathered at the cenotaph
 Bb
 All agreed with the hand on heart,
 CF
 To sheath the sacrificial knives.
 F
But now she stands upon Southampton dock
 Bb
With her handkerchief
 C
And her summer frock clings
 F
To her wet body in the rain.
In quiet desperation knuckles
 Bb
 White upon the slippery reins
 CF
She bravely waves the boys goodbye again.
 BbBbmF
Mm______. 
 Bb
 And still the dark stain spreads between
 F
His shoulder blades.
 BbFF7Gm7
 A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves. 
 F7BbCDm7C7/E
 And when the fight was over 
 FAm7Dm
We spent what they had made.
 Gm7
But in the bottom of our hearts
 F
We felt the final cut.
