The Gunners Dream
Pink Floyd - The Gunner's Dream (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 C7M 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, C7M 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.
