ON THE TURNING AWAY
Pink Floyd
(Gilmour, Moore)
On the turning away from the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in the turning away"
It's a sin that some h[G]ow
Light is c[C]hanging to sha[Em]dow, and ca[D]sting [G5]its s[G]hroud over all we[C] have known.
[Em]Unaware how the [C]ranks have g[G]rown, dr[Em]iven on by a h[G]eart of s[C]tone,
[G]we could find that we're [C]all a[Em]lone in the [D]dream o[G5]f the [G]proud on[Em] the win[D]gs of
t[G]he night As the d[C]ay time is st[Em]irring, where the sp[D]eachless [G]unite in a
[C]silent accord, [Em]using words you will f[C]ind as str[G]ange, me[Em]smerized as they l[G]ight
the[C] flame, Fe[G]el the new wind of ch[C]ange [Em]on the wi[D]ngs of t[G]he night
BRIDGE:(distorted electric)
E5 D Cadd9 C5 D5 Em D A5 (B note on fifth string)
(A note on fifth string) C5 C#5/D5/A5\ A5 Am C C#5/D5/A\ E5
/ = Slide up to next chord \ = slide down to next chord
VERSE:
No[Em] more tur[D]ning a[G5]way, from the w[C]eak and the w[Em]eary,
No more t[D]urning awa[G5]y from the co[C]ldeness inside.
