Wish You Were Here Chords

Standard Tuning

Em | G | Em | G | Em | A | Em | A | G...

Verse 1:
C                         D
So, so you think you can tell,
             Am                   G
Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
                     D                       C                    Am
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil,
Do you think you can tell?

Verse 2:
                      C                       D
Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
                Am                    G                             D
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change?
         C                                 Am                     G    
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

Em | G | Em | G | Em | A | Em | A | G

C                               D
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
           Am                                     G                  D
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground. What have we found?
             Am                     G    
The same old fears. Wish you were here.

Em | G | Em | G | Em | A | Em | A | G (x2)
