On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"                               Now the chords.

(Em)   (D)     G
It's a sin that somehow
            C         Em
Light is changing to shadow
          D    G
And casting its shroud
      C
Over all we have known
Em              C          G
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Em             G        C
Driven on by a heart of stone
G                        C   Em
We could find that we're all alone
       D            G
In the dream of the proud




Em     D            G
On the wings of the night
       C          Em
As the daytime is slurring
          D         G
Where the speechless unite
     C
In a silent accord
G                    C         Em
Using words you will find are strange
G                     Em         C
And mesmerized as they light the flame
G                    C
Feel the new wind of change
Em      D           G
On the wings of the night



Em      D       G
No more turning away
         C           Em 
From the weak and the weary
Em      D       G
No more turning away
         C
From the coldness inside
G                    C        Em
Just a world that we all must share
G                       Em        C
It's not enough just to stand and stare
G             C                 Em       
Is it only a dream that there'll be
        D       G
No more turning away?

About the artist behind On The Turning Away Chords:

Pink Floyd are an English rock band that initially earned recognition for their psychedelic or space rock music, and, as they evolved, for their progressive rock music. They are known for philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative cover art, and elaborate live shows. One of rock music's most successful acts, the group have sold over 200 million albums worldwide[1][2] including 74.5 million albums in the United States alone.[3]

Pink Floyd had moderate mainstream success and were one of the most popular bands in the London underground music scene in the late 1960s as a psychedelic band led by Syd Barrett; however, Barrett's erratic behaviour eventually forced his colleagues to replace him with guitarist and singer David Gilmour. After Barrett's departure, singer and bass player Roger Waters gradually became the dominant and driving force in the group in the late-1970s, until his eventual departure from the group in 1985. The band recorded several albums, achieving worldwide success with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). In 1985, Waters declared Pink Floyd "a spent force", but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, continued recording and touring under the name Pink Floyd. Although they were unsuccessfully sued by Waters for rights to the name, they again enjoyed worldwide success with A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987) and The Division Bell (1994). Eventually they reached a settlement out of court with Waters allowing them use of the name. Waters performed with the band for the first time in 24 years on 2 July 2005 at the London Live 8 concert.
