[Em]         [G]        [Em]         [G]      [Em]    [Am7] [Em] [Am7] [G] [G] [C]So, so you think you can [D]tell, heaven from [Am]hell?  Blue skies from [G]pain?
Can you tell a green [D]field, from a cold steel [C]rail?  A smile from a [Am]veil?
Do you think you can [G]tell?  Did they get you to [C]trade, your heroes for [D]ghosts?
Hot ashes for [Am]trees?  Hot air for a [G]cool breeze?  Cold comfort for [D]change
And did you ex[C]change, a walk-on part in the [Am]war, for a lead role in a [G]cage...
(guitar solo - repeat intro)
[C]How I wish, how I wish you were [D]here
We're just [Am]two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl[G], year after year
[D]Running over the same old ground[C], what have we found - the same old [Am]fears?
Wish you were [G]here
INTRODUCTION
(Well my version of it-you'll have to work out the solo yourself-I
only play this one on my own so the actual solo sounds a bit suspect!)

This sounds pretty good, not the actual sheet
music version but fits very well with the above chords!!!!!
The actual music is in another key, lots of sus chords which is
practically the same sound as above!!!!

Then the chords and the lyrics come in.
[G]     [C]So, so you think you can t[D]ell
heaven from h[Am]ell, blue sky from pa[G]in. Can you tell a green fi[D]eld, from a
cold steel ra[C]il, a smile from a va[Am]il? Do you think you can te[G]ll?
Did they get you t[C]rade, your heros for gh[D]osts, hot ashes for t[Am]rees, hot air
from a coo[G]l breeze, cold comfort for cha[D]nge, did you exch[C]ange, a walk on
the part of the w[Am]ar, for a lead role in the c[G]age.
Fill1 is played here again along with the solo.
the solo will be added soon, i haven't yet perfected it yet.
H[C]ow i wish, how i wish you were he[D]re. We're just [Am]two lost souls swimming
in a fish bowl,[G] year after year.[D] Running over the same old ground,[C] but have
we found the same old fea[Am]rs, wish you were he[G]re.
second solo played, very identical to the first solo, with a few alterations.
i will add that also
