Pink Floyd – Southampton Dock

G
They disembarked in 45

C
And no-one spoke and no-one smiled 

D              D7                G
There were to many spaces in the line. 

G
Gathered at the cenotaph 

C
All agreed with the hand on heart

D             D7          G 
To sheath the sacrificial Knifes. 

G
But now,  She stands upon Southampton dock 

C
With her handkerchief

        D      
And her summer frock clings

           D7          G 
To her wet body in the rain.                              

In quiet desperation knuckles

C 
White upon the slippery reins 

D                     D7           G 
She bravely waves the boys Goodbye again.

     C/G         g  
Mm.......................

C                                            G                                 
And still the dark stain spreads between his shoulder blades. 

C                      G                G7
A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves. 

C/G                    D  
And when the fight was over

G             G/F# base Em
We spent what they had made. 

        Am7 
But in the bottom of our hearts

                  G
We felt the final cut.
