Pink Floyd Profile

About Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd founded in 1965 by students Syd Barrett on guitar and lead vocals, Nick Mason on drums, Roger Waters on bass and vocals, and Richard Wright on keyboards and vocals. They gained popularity performing in London's underground music scene during the late 1960s, and under Barrett's leadership released two charting singles and a successful debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967). Guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour joined in December 1967; Barrett left in April 1968 due to deteriorating mental health. Waters became the band's primary lyricist and conceptual leader, devising the concepts behind their albums The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979) and The Final Cut (1983).

[Verse 1]
Cm            Cm7           G#
Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
Cm              Cm7             G#
In a world of magnets and miracles
Cm                      Cm7           G#
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
Cm                      Cm7             G#
The ringing of the division bell had begun

[Post-Verse 1]
Cm              Bb          G7                 Bm Cm
Along the long road and on down the causeway
Cm             Bb            G7
Do they still meet there by the cut?

[Verse 2]
Cm                Cm7                 G#
There was a ragged band who followed in our footsteps
Cm             Cm7                 G#
Running before time took our dreams away
Cm                   Cm7                 G#
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
Cm                Cm7          G#
To a life consumed by slow decay....

[Chorus 1]
                 Cm    Gm   G#   Bb
The grass was greener...
                 Cm  ( D ) Eb   Fm ( G )  G#
The light was brighter...
                 Cm   Gm   G#   Bb
When friends surrounded...
                 Cm   ( D ) Eb   Fm  G
The nights of wonder...

[Verse 3]
Cm                  Cm7          G#
Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
Cm                  Cm7                 G#
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Cm          Cm7             G#
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Cm               Cm7               G#
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

[Post-Verse 2]
Cm             Bb         G7           Bm Cm
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
Cm             Bb                      G7
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

[Verse 4]
Cm                     Cm7             G#
Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
Cm           Cm7                 G#
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Cm        Cm7                    G#
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Cm              Cm7                 G#
Go down this road I've been so many times...

[Chorus 2]
                 Cm  Gm G# Bb
The grass was greener...
                 Cm ( D ) Eb Fm ( G ) G#
The light was brighter...
                 Cm   Gm  G#  Bb
The taste was sweeter...
                 Cm  Eb ( D ) Fm ( G ) G#
The nights of wonder...
                 Cm  Gm  G#  Bb
With friends surrounded...
                 Cm ( D ) Eb Fm ( G ) G#
The dawn mist glowing...
             Cm  Gm  G# Bb
The water flowing...
              Cm  ( D ) Eb   Fm ( D )  G#
The endless river...
              Cm  Gm  G#  Bb
Forever and ever...

Cm  Gm  G#  Bb
