THE GUNNER'S DREAM
Pink Floyd
(Waters)


G  G+  Em  C  G  D  Em

G             G+
Floating down through the clouds
Em/G                  C
Memories come rushing up to meet me now.
       G
In the space between the heavens
           D                             C
And in the corner of some foreign field,
        G      Em  C
I had a dream,
        G
I had a dream.

G            G+
Goodbye Max, goodbye Ma.
Em/G                          C
After the service when you're walking slowly to the car
        G                                D
And the silver in her hair shines in the cold November air,
    Em                         Cmaj7                  D/C     C
You hear the tolling bell, and touch the silk in your lapel,
    G                                  D                      Em
And as the tear drops rise to meet the comfort of the band,
C                  D
You take her frail hand and hold on to the dream.

G  G+  Em  C  D  G  D  Em  D  C  D/C  G  D  C  G  Em  C  Em

G                G+
A place to stay, enough to eat,
Em                           C
Somewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street.
              G                                    D
Where you can speak out loud about your doubts and fears,
                Em
And what's more no-one ever disappears,
                                    Cmaj7
You never hear their standard issue kicking in your door.
G                D
You can relax on both sides of the tracks,
            Em                  C                      D7/C
And maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control,
    G                            D
And everyone has recourse to the law,
    C                            G     Em
And no-one kills the children anymore.
C                                   G
No-one kills the children anymore.

C             D          G         D        Em      D
Night after night, going round and round my brain,

    C        D            G
His dream is driving me insane___________________.
       G
In the corner of some foreign field,
    D
The gunner sleeps tonight.
Em                     C    D/C
What's done is done.
   G                               D
We cannot just write off his final scene.
C                G       Em
Take heed of his dream,
C           Em
Take heed.
