Southampton Dock

Song Author Roger Waters Lyrics by: Roger Waters Performer: Pink Floyd Submitted by: Anonymous
[F]They disembarked in 45,
[Bb]And no-one spoke and no-one smiled
[C]There were to many spaces in the li[F]ne.  
Gathered at the cenotaph
[Bb]All agreed with the hand on heart,
[C]To sheath the sacrificial knive[F]s.  
But now she [F]stands upon Southampton dock
With her [Bb]handkerchief
And her summer frock [C]clings
To her wet body in the rai[F]n.  
In quiet desperation knuckles
[Bb]White upon the slippery reins
She [C]bravely waves the boys goodbye aga[F]in.  
Mm[Bb]. [Bbm]    [F]    

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

They disembarked in 45,
And no-one spoke and no-one smiled
There were to many spaces in the line.
Gathered at the cenotaph
All agreed with the hand on heart,
To sheath the sacrificial knives.
But now she stands upon Southampton dock
With her handkerchief
And her summer frock clings
To her wet body in the rain.
In quiet desperation knuckles
White upon the slippery reins
She bravely waves the boys goodbye again.
Mm.

And still the dark stain spreads between
His shoulder blades.
A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves.
And when the fight was over
We spent what they had made.
But in the bottom of our hearts
We felt the final cut.
