The Gunner's Dream

Song Author Roger Waters Lyrics by: Roger Waters Performer: Pink Floyd Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]    [G+]    [Em]    [C]    [G]    [D]    [Em]    
[G]Floating down [G+]through the clouds
[Em/G]Memories come rushing [C]up to meet me now.
In the [G]space between the heavens
And in the [D]corner of some foreign field,[C]    
I had a [G]dream,[Em]    [C]    
I had a [G]dream.

[G]Goodbye Max, [G+]goodbye Ma.
[Em/G]After the service when
you're [C]walking slowly to the car
And the [G]silver in her hair shines
in the [D]cold November air,
You [Em]hear the tolling bell, a
nd [Cmaj7]touch the silk in your [D/C]lapel,[C]    
And [G]as the tear drops rise
to meet the [D]comfort of the band,[Em]    
[C]You take her frail [D]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]A place to stay, [G+]enough to eat,
[Em]Somewhere old heroes shuffle
[C]safely down the street.
Where you can [G]speak out loud
about your doubts and [D]fears,
And what's more [Em]no-one ever disappears,
You never hear their standard issue
[Cmaj7]kicking in your door.
[G]You can relax on [D]both sides of the tracks,
And maniacs [Em]don't blow holes in
[C]bandsmen by remote cont[D7/C]rol,     
And [G]everyone has recourse to the [D]law,
And [C]no-one kills the children any[G]more.[Em]    
[C]No-one kills the children anymore.[G]    

[C]Night after ni[D]ght,
going [G]round and [D]round my [Em]brain,[D]    
His [C]dream is [D]driving me in[G]sane.
In the [G]corner of some foreign field,
The [D]gunner sleeps tonight.
[Em]What's done is done. [C]    [D/C]    
We [G]cannot just write off his final [D]scene.
[C]Take heed of his [G]dream,[Em]    
[C]Take heed.[Em]    


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

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



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

Night after night,
going round and round my brain,
His dream is driving me insane.
In the corner of some foreign field,
The gunner sleeps tonight.
What's done is done.
We cannot just write off his final scene.
Take heed of his dream,
Take heed.
