C                    Gsus                C
It was just before dawn one miserable morning in black forty-four

When the foreward commander was told to sit tight,

F/C        C
When they asked that his men be withdrawn

And the generals gave thanks, as the other ranks

Gsus                 C
Held back the enemy tanks for a while

C                    Gsus
And the Anzio Bridgehead was held for the price

Of a few hundred ordinary lives

C                 G                    C                       G
And kind old King George sent Mother a note when he heard that Father was gone

C           G                      C
It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll with gold leaf and all

And I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs hidden away

C                                Gsus
And my eyes still grow damp to remember

His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp

C                G                             C
It was dark all around, there was frost on the ground

When the Tigers broke free

And no-one survived from the Royal Fusiliers, Company "C"

G                    C                   G                         C
They were all left behind,  most of them dead  -  the rest of them dying

C                  G                    C
And that's how the high command took my daddy from me

About the artist behind When The Tigers Broke Free:

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.
