Song of the Week #2

   This week's lesson is for Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd.  The song is in the key of G major, so play the Emin pent scale or Gmaj scale against it.

   Go ahead and copy and paste the frame to the right into Word or your favorite word processor, then increase the font size.

   Let us know if you like it.  When we get a few responses, we will add a new song.

Em-G   Em-G   Em-Am7   Em-Am7   G G G G
C                                                   D                            
So,               so you think you can tell         
                      Am                                G
Heaven from hell,      blue skies from pain,

                                D                                      C
can you tell a green field,     from a cold steel rail

                        Am                                           G
a smile from a veil          Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade

                           D                                  Am
your heroes for ghosts     hot ashes for trees, 
                      G                                                      D
hot air for a cool breeze            cold comfort for change

             C                                                  Am 
did you exchange    a walk-on part in the war

for a lead role in a cage?

(Guitar riff like intro)
           C                                              D 

How I wish,        how I wish you were here
                  Am                                                          G

we're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,    year after year,

D                                                     C 
running over the same old ground,  what have we found,

                      Am                                G   
The same old fears,    Wish you were here
(Guitar riff like intro and fade)
