Wish You Were Here  by Pink Floyd

[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?

[G]    Did they get you to [C]trade,
    Your heroes for [D]ghosts,
    Hot ashes for [Am]trees
    Hot air for a c[G]ool breeze,
    Cold comfort for [D]change,
    Did you exch[C]ange,
    A walk on part in the [Am]war,
    for a lead role in a [G]cage?
[G]    [C]How I wish, how I wish you were [D]here,
    We're just [Am]two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
  [G]  Year after year, [D]
Running over the same old ground,
    But have we [C]found
    The same old [Am]fears,
    Wish you were [G]here

I do believe it's "a walk-on part in the world for a lead role in a cage"

Bob Cummins (report)

Can someone correct the spelling ? "Hero's" should be "heroes", and "soles "should be "souls".


borges7 (report)

The intro riffs are all over the internet. But for simple "strummers" who don't want to spend a month on it, try:

G Em G Em G Em

You can throw that in between the versus too....

hard to understand

Its all accurate. C-G can definitely be used but it's really a choice. 12 string is essential for the intro, fill, and all the chords. Adding a six string during the chords makes it sound really great.

JackG79 (report)

Sounds good to me. Checked a few others. Seems pretty accurate.

music_guy (report)

I think it sounds great!

chrisread (report)

pitton (report)
