Pink Floyd Nobody Home
from the album, The Wall
I've seen some crappy and unfinished chords/tabs on this song, and
I figured it deserved just a bit more justice.
The song is absolutely beautiful, and very simple to play.
I suggest playing along with the song to get the chords and rhythm down.
When you play the 'C F C' parts, just play two quick downward strums of F.

I've got a little black book with my poems in.
Got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in.

When I'm a good dog, they sometimes throw me a bone in.
I got elastic bands keeping my shoes on.
Got those swollen hand blues.
Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from.
I've got electric light.
And I've got second sight.

And amazing powers of observation.
And that is how I know
When I try to get through

On the telephone to you

There'll be nobody home.
I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm.
And the inevitable pinhole burns
F C F C
All down the front of my favourite satin shirt.
I've got nicotine stains on my fingers.
I've got a silver spoon on a chain.
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains.
I've got wild staring eyes.
And I've got a strong urge to fly.
But I got nowhere to fly to.

Ooooh, Babe when I pick up the phone

There's still nobody home.
I've got a pair of Gohills boots
E E7 (let it ring)
and I got fading roots.
