Southampton Dock Chords

   
Pink Floyd - Southampton Dock (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.
