Pink Floyd
(Barrett)

B  A/B  Gmaj7/D  F#(addB)
     
      Bsus4 Asus2    G6        F#7sus4
There was a king who ruled the land.
     
    Bsus4  Asus4 G6    F#7sus4
His Majesty was in command.
     
     Bsus4  Asus2    G6      F#7sus4 Bsus4  Asus2  G6     F#7sus4
With silver eyes the scarlet eagle showered silver on the people.
     
G   D   A       G    D  E
Oh____, mother, tell me more.
     
N.C.
Why'd you have to leave me there,
     
                          B
Hanging in my infant air, waiting?
     
N.C.
You only have to read the lines of scribbly black and ev'rything shines.
     
     
 Bsus4     Asus2       G6     F#7sus4
Across the stream with wooden shoes,
     
Bsus4    Asus2    G6       F#7sus4
Bells to tell the king the news,
     
  Bsus4    Asus2 G6     F#7sus4  Bsus4  Asus2  G6   F#7sus4
A thousand misty riders climb up higher once upon a time.
     
G     D       A
Wondering and dreaming.
     
    G          D         E
The words have different meanings.
     
A    G    E       F#
Yes, they did.
     
     
   Bsus4   Asus4      G6      F#7sus4
Of all the time spent in that room,
     
    Bsus4        Asus2     G6     F#7sus4
The doll's house darkness, old perfume,
     
    Bsus4 Asus2   G6      F#7sus4 Bsus4     Asus2         G6  F#7sus4
And fairy stories held me high on clouds of sunlight floating by.
     
G   D   A       G    D  E
Oh____, mother, tell me more.
     
A    G  E
Tell me more.
