SOUTHAMPTON DOCK
Pink Floyd
(Waters)

F
They disembarked in 45,
Bb
And no-one spoke and no-one smiled
C                                  F
There were to many spaces in the line.

Gathered at the cenotaph
Bb
All agreed with the hand on heart,
C                              F
To sheath the sacrificial knives.
            F
But now she stands upon Southampton dock
         Bb
With her handkerchief
                     C
And her summer frock clings
                          F
To her wet body in the rain.

In quiet desperation knuckles
Bb
White upon the slippery reins
    C                                 F
She bravely waves the boys goodbye again.
    Bb         Bbm   F
Mm______.

Bb
And still the dark stain spreads between
    F
His shoulder blades.
Bb                     F                         F7  Gm7
A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves.
F7  Bb                 C      Dm7  C7/E
And when the fight was over
   F          Am7      Dm
We spent what they had made.

    Gm7
But in the bottom of our hearts
                  F
We felt the final cut.
