G9            
Wasting my time, Resting my mind
And I'll never pine
        A                D#9  D9  
For the sad days and the bad days
F#7  G7    F#7 G7    F#7  G7  F#7 G7    
When we was workin' from nine to five.

And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light of her eyes.

(break)
B  Em  A 
D D#

And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light of her eyes.

(repeat break)
(solo - g blues)

All I have so far is the intro.  It's not exactly the way Floyd
play it, but it sounds pretty close.  If anyone can help out,
it would be greatly appreciated.

   eyes!

Hi guys, Syl (Frenchydon'thitme!) Voice talking;
What a pleasure it is to be able to play this song on an acoustic guitar,
I'v waited a few years to adapt it, 'cause of course that's an adaptation:
I'm not the Off-The-Record man. I've transcribed the way I'm playing it,
but unless you really start the instrument (& then what are you doin'g here?
Get back to Let it be!) I don't think that it's a good idea to play the tune
in exactly the same way. My advice: Take a look at verse 1, it's all over
the same part except for the 2 last bars. So you can only learn verse 1 &
links to play the thing like that:

   Intro   : verse 1 with a bit less notes
   link  1 : E7 with a few D#7
   Verse 1 : verse 1 (No?! Yes it is Sir!)  =)
   link  2 : E7 with a few D#7 (u see link 1? exactly the same thing...)
   Verse 2 : Verse 1 (Again? Roger must have wrote it)
   link  3 : E7#9 & B7#9 (U know, the blues ones!)
   Bridge  : Verse one but with a bit more notes
   link  4 : E7 with a few D#7, exactly as Link 1
   Verse 3 : Good old verse 1 is striking back, but this time
             with verse 2's lyrics. Hi Roger, not too busy?
   Coda    : E7, B7#9...  D#7, E7, F7, E7... (TaDa!)

something not on the tab: Slide from D#7 to E7 on links.
Link 3, bridge & Coda are my own ideas, as they replace solo parts,
being not able to play them alone ('cuz i'm alone, how cruel is life!
but she will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine!), i didn't even tried to
catch chords on 'em, but it sounds to me as an old 12-bar blues in E.



Another good idea: All of the lyrics on just 8 lines:

v1: wasting my time...
    resting my mind...                              the typical Rog. line \
    and I'll never pine                                                   |
    for the sad days and the bad days when we was working from 9  to 5. <-/

v2: and if you don't mind...                    <=v3 too
    I'll spend my time...
    here by the fire side
    in the warm light of the love in her eyes!

a bit more for UnGuitarists:
verse: “Em              “NoChord        “
       “Em              “NoChord        “
       “Em              “B7             “
Link 1, link 2, link 4:
       “E7 E7 D#7 E7 D#7“E7 E7D#7 E7    “
Link 3:
       “E7#9            “B7#9           “
Coda:
       “E7      B7#9    “D#7 E7 F7 E7   “

NoChords bars are the little chromatic thing:
        “E   Eb  D   C#   “ (play any note of the Em chord on counterpoints)
        “E   F#  G   A  B“  (both E, G & B do the job, I mainly use G)
        (1   2   3   4  &)

Well, i think that's all folks. Have fun as they say & if you've got any
tabs, parts, adaptations or even .MIDs of Floyd tunes, Come, I love you!

the accoustic guitar ;) .)
