THE FINAL CUT
Pink Floyd
(Waters)

F                                          F/C   C
Through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes____
      Bb add9                                   F
I can barely define the shape of this moment in time.
    F                                  F/C   C
And far from flying high in clear blue skies___,
    Bb add9                                           F
I'm spiralling down to the hole in the ground where I hide.

Bb                   F|| Accoustic guitar
If you negotiate the minefield in the drive,|| begins here.
||
Bb                                   F|| Listen to record
And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes,|| for strumming rhytm.
||
Bb         C                    Dm||
And if you make it past the shotgun in the hall,||
||
Gm7||
Dial the combination, open the priesthole||
||
                    C                                 F||
And if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall.|| Stop here.
Am                                   F
There's a kid who had a big hallucination
Am                          C
Making love to girls in magazines.
   Bb                                   Dm
He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith.
Gm7
Could anybody love him
                /C          F      F/C  C  Bb add9  F
Or is it just a crazy dream___?
    F                     C
And if I show you my dark side
                    Bb   F
Will you still hold me tonight?
    F            C
And if I open my heart to you
                     Bb
And show you my weak side,
               F
What would you do?
Bb                                   F
Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone?|| Start again here.
||
Bb||
Would you take the children away||
||
F||
And leave me alone?||
||
    Bb           C||
And smile in reassurance||
||
       Dm||
As you whisper down the phone,||
||
Gm7||
Would you send me packing,|| Stop here.

/C                   F
Or would you take me home?

Am  F  Am  C  Bb  Dm  Gm7  /C  F

I never had the nerve to make the final cut.
