ON THE TURNING AWAY
Pink Floyd
(Gilmour, Moore)

On the turning away from the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in the turning away"

                      G
It's a sin that some how
          C             Em         D     G5   G                C
Light is changing to shadow, and casting its shroud over all we have known.
Em              C           G       Em            G        C
Unaware how the ranks have grown, driven on by a heart of stone,
G                        C    Em          D      G5    G        Em      D 
we could find that we're all alone in the dream of the proud  on the wings of
 G                  C            Em                  D        G         
the night   As the day time is stirring, where the speachless unite in a 
C              Em                    C         G       Em                G
silent accord, using words you will find as strange, mesmerized as they light
   C         G                    C    Em       D       G           
the flame, Feel the new wind of change on the wings of the night


BRIDGE:(distorted electric)

E5   D   Cadd9   C5    D5    Em     D    A5  (B note on fifth string)

VERSE:
  Em       D     G5              C            Em
No more turning away,  from the weak and the weary, 

            D         G5           C
   No more turning away from the coldeness inside.

   Just a world that we all must share It's not enough just to stand and stare

Is it only a dream that there'll be no more turning away
