Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here (ver 5)
In memory of Michael David Winans
Modified by Matt Winans

This version is the one I play in memory of my brother, Michael David Winans who passed 
on Feb. 5th, 2009.
It was his favorite song and he played this song himself quite often.
This is my first tab, and is modified from version 4 with a lot of errors fixed.

I replaced Solo 2 with the rhythm guitar because it's how I play the song and sounds decent.
I would encourage others to do the same unless you are as pro at bending acoustic 
as David Gilmore.

	Key:
      h - hammer on
      p - pull off
      b - bend string up
      / - slide

(Strum G chord a few times).

C                           D
So, so you think you can tell

              AM
Heaven from Hell

                   G
Blue Skies from pain

                       D
Can you tell a green field

                    C
From a cold steel rail

                AM
A smile from a veil

                       G
So you think you can tell

                       C
Did they get you to trade

                    D
Your heroes for ghosts

                  AM
Hot Ashes for trees

                      G
Hot air for a cool breeze

                    D
Cold comfort for change

              C
Did you exchange?

                      AM
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.

                                  AM
What have we found the same old fears

                G
Wish you were here...
