Good one SeaDawg. Pink Floyd's got some great lyrics that I can never quite remember (now why would that be?).
This morning on my commute, I was listening to John Denver. I've said before how I like Rocky Mountain High. This morning I noticed why. One of my favorite "tricks" to move a song forward is to change a line in the chorus each time around rather than just repeat the same lines (unless repeating the same lines is important to the song). Anyway, John Denver used three great lines to rhyme with "Rocky Mountain High"
1. You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
2. He knew he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.
3. Friends all around the campfire and everybody's high.
Of course, when the song/story starts with the line "He was born in the summer of his 27th year, coming home to a place he'd never been before...", you ought to know you're in for a lyrical ride.
Granted B chord amnesty by King of the Mutants (Long live the king).
