Pink Floyd – On The Turning Away

[Intro]
               G
On the turning away
                  Em7
From the pale and downtrodden
                   G
And the words they say
         C
Which we won't understand
 
[Verse 1]
                          G       Em
"Don't accept that what's happening
                          G        C
Is just a case of others' suffering
                           G       Em
Or you'll find that you're joining in
    Am      G
The turning away"
 
[Verse 2]
                G
It's a sin that somehow
                     Em7
Light is changing to shadow
                 G
And casting it's shroud
     C
Over all we have known
 
[Verse 3]
                G          Em
Unaware how the ranks have grown
                G       C
Driven on by a heart of stone
                         G   Em
We could find that we're all alone
       Am           G
In the dream of the proud
 
[Verse 4]
                    G
On the wings of the night
                  Em7
As the daytime is stirring
                     G
Where the speechless unite
     C
In a silent accord
 
[Verse 5]
                     G        Em
Using words you will find are strange
                       G         C
And mesmerized as they light the flame
             G       Em
Feel the new wind of change
       Am           G
On the wings of the night
 
[Verse 6]
                G
No more turning away
                      Em7
From the weak and the weary
                G
No more turning away
          C
From the coldness inside
 
[Outro]
                     G        Em
Just a world that we all must share
                        G         C
It's not enough just to stand and stare
             G                   Em
Is it only a dream that there'll be
        Am      G
No more turning away?
