SOUTHAMPTON DOCK

Pink Floyd

(Waters)



F

They disembarked in 45,

Bb

And no-one spoke and no-one smiled

C                                  F

There were to many spaces in the line.



Gathered at the cenotaph

Bb

All agreed with the hand on heart,

C                              F

To sheath the sacrificial knives.

            F

But now she stands upon Southampton dock

         Bb

With her handkerchief

                     C

And her summer frock clings

                          F

To her wet body in the rain.



In quiet desperation knuckles

Bb

White upon the slippery reins

    C                                 F

She bravely waves the boys goodbye again.

    Bb         Bbm   F

Mm______.



Bb

And still the dark stain spreads between

    F

His shoulder blades.

Bb                     F                         F7  Gm7

A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves.

F7  Bb                 C      Dm7  C7/E

And when the fight was over

   F          Am7      Dm

We spent what they had made.



    Gm7

But in the bottom of our hearts

                  F

We felt the final cut.
