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.
