"The Division Bell"

CHORDS



VERSE:
Cm                Cm(add B5)        Cm               Cm (add B5)   
On the day the wall came down, they threw the locks on to the ground
Fm/Ab                                     Gsus4              G
And with glasses high we raised a cry for freedom had arrived

Cm                 Cm(add B5)
And on the day the wall came down
Cm                    Cm(add B5)
The ship of fools had finally run aground
Fm/Ab           Gsus4            G
Promises lit up the night like paper doves in flight

CHORUS:
     F        G/F      F                       G/F  F        F/C  C
I dreamed you had left my side. No warmth not even pride remained--
     F/C           F           G/F    F                        G/F     F
              And even though you needed me, it was clear that I could not
      F/C  C         C   G/C   G/B   
do a thing for you

VERSE:
Now life devalues day by day
As friends and neighbours turn away
And there's a change that even with regret can not be undone

Now frontiers shift like desert sands,
as nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey

CHORUS:
I woke to the sound of drums
The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you,
and all but the bitter residue slipped away,
slipped away

About the artist behind A Great Day For Freedom:

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.
