THE FINAL CUT

Pink Floyd

(Waters)



F                                          F/C   C

Through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes____

      Bb add9                                   F

I can barely define the shape of this moment in time.

    F                                  F/C   C

And far from flying high in clear blue skies___,

    Bb add9                                           F

I'm spiralling down to the hole in the ground where I hide.



Bb                   F|| Accoustic guitar

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive,|| begins here.

||

Bb                                   F|| Listen to record

And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes,|| for strumming rhytm.

||

Bb         C                    Dm||

And if you make it past the shotgun in the hall,||

||

Gm7||

Dial the combination, open the priesthole||

||

                    C                                 F||

And if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall.|| Stop here.

Am                                   F

There's a kid who had a big hallucination

Am                          C

Making love to girls in magazines.

   Bb                                   Dm

He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith.

Gm7

Could anybody love him

                /C          F      F/C  C  Bb add9  F

Or is it just a crazy dream___?

    F                     C

And if I show you my dark side

                    Bb   F

Will you still hold me tonight?

    F            C

And if I open my heart to you

                     Bb

And show you my weak side,

               F

What would you do?

Bb                                   F

Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone?|| Start again here.

||

Bb||

Would you take the children away||

||

F||

And leave me alone?||

||

    Bb           C||

And smile in reassurance||

||

       Dm||

As you whisper down the phone,||

||

Gm7||

Would you send me packing,|| Stop here.



/C                   F

Or would you take me home?



Am  F  Am  C  Bb  Dm  Gm7  /C  F

I never had the nerve to make the final cut.
