Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
This is a simple and haunting tune from Pink Floyd. It shows just how amazing a song can be using only simple chords. As with previous songs, the chords in this are all very common which you will find repeated in many popular songs.
This is a great beginner guitar song to learn as it is quite slow and with a little bit of practice you should be able to combine it with singing and put on a performance.
This song introduces a couple of new chords and reuses many from our previous song:

Lyrics and Chords:
C D So, so you think you can tell, Am G Heaven from Hell, blue skys from pain. D C Am Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil, G Do you think you can tell? C D And 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 And 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 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, C 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
