The Show Must Go On/ Pink Floyd / written by Roger Waters

Tab Transcription by Vince Josaphs (

I noticed that this song was requested by many, and I took my fair 
share of tab, so here is my little contribution.  This song from the 
wall basicilly has the same chord progression as "Mother" but without 
the F-C progression in the middle.  The main chords are G, C, and D.  
Gilmour fiddles aroung with the D, adding a G occasionally.  You have 
to listen to the album.  Its a cool little tune.

           G	              C               D


G	       C

Ahhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhh   oohhhhhhh ohohhho   oohhhh ohhh

G	       C

Ahhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhh

G	        C

Ahhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhh

D	    C

Oooh Ma   Oooh Pa


Must the show go on

D            C

Ooooooh Ma  Take me home take me home take me home take me home

D 	  C

Ooooohh Pa   let me go let me go let me go let me go

( The following verse is sung over a bass playing an E over and over 

There must be some mistake, I didn't mean to let them take away my 
soul, am I too old, is it too late

D		C

Oooooohh Ma  Oooooooooh Pa  Where has the feeling gone

D		C

Ohhhhhhh Ma  Oooooooooh Pa  Will I remember the songs

D	    C

Ohhhhhhh Ah   The show must go on
