A Great Day for Freedom  Pink Floyd

Transcription by: Jon (
Pink Floyd
(Gilmour, Samson)
[Cm]On the day the wal[Cm(add]l came [b5)]down, they [Cm]threw the locks o[Cm]n t[(add]o the[b5)] ground
[Fm/Ab]And with glasses high we raised a cry for [Gsus4]freedom had arrived[G]
And on the day the wall came down
The ship of fools had finally run aground.
Promises lit up the night like paper doves in flight.
I dre[F]amed you [G/F]had left [F]my side. No warmth not e[G/F]ven p[F]ride rema[F/C]ined-[C]-
[F/C] And e[F]ven though y[G/F]ou need[F]ed me, it was clear that [G/F]I could [F]not
do a t[F/C]hing [C]for you.[C] [G/C] [G/B]
Now life devalues day by day
As friends and neighbours turn away.
And there's a change that even with regret can not be undone.
Now frontiers shift like desert sands,
as nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey.
I woke to the sound of drums.
The music played, the morning sun streamed in.
I turned and I looked at you,
and all but the bitter residue slipped away,
slipped away.
