Roger Waters – Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert And Southampton Dock chords

Roger Waters (Acoustic Guitar) In The Flesh Live

GBrezhnev took Afghanistan
CAnd Begin took Beirut
D GGaltieri took the Union Jack
GAnd Maggie, over lunch one day,
CTook a cruiser with all hands
D GApparently to make him give it back.
C GUuuuuuuh Maggie what have you done?
GThey disembarked in 45,
CAnd no-one spoke and no-one smiled
D GThere were to many spaces in the line
Gathered at the cenotaph
CAll agreed with the hand on heart,
D GTo sheath the sacrificial knives
GBut now she stands upon Southampton dock
CWith her handkerchief
DAnd her summer frock clings
GTo her wet body in the rain.
In quiet desperation knuckles
CWhite upon the slippery reins
D GShe bravely waves the boys goodbye again
C GUuuuuuuh Maggie what have you done?
CAnd still the dark stain spreads between
GHis shoulder blades
C G G7 Am7A mute reminder of the poppy fields and graves
G7 C D Em7 D7And when the fight was over
G Cm7 EmWe spent what they had made
Am7But in the bottom of our hearts
We felt the final cut.
