pink floyd

Wish You Were Here è la celebre title track dell’album inciso dai Pink Floyd nel 1975: fu composta da Roger Waters e David Gilmour (il primo più per il testo ed il secondo più per la musica) e nella versione originale inizia a mò di canale radiofonico, quasi come se l’ascoltatore si soffermasse su di essa mentre scorre le frequenze (tra le quali si nota una passaggio della quarta sinfonia di Tchaikovsky); questa introduzione fu registrata dall’autoradio dello stesso Gilmour.
Viene talvolta stata suonata live da moltissimi altri artisti (Dream Theater, Velvet Revolver, Europe, Wycleaf Jean per citarne alcuni) ed è divenuto uno dei brani acustici per eccellenza.
La rivista Rolling Stone nel 2004 l’ha inserita al 316esimo posto tra le 500 canzoni più belle di sempre.

Testo con accordi per chitarra.

C                         D
So, so you think you can tell,
             Am                  G
Heaven from Hell, blue skys from pain.
                     D                       C
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail,
   Am
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
Hot ashes for trees, hot air for a cool breeze,
                       D
cold comfort for change,
                  C                        Am
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war
                         G
for a lead role in a cage?

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

The same old fears. Wish you were here
