Roger Waters – The Tide Is Turning After Live Aid tab
Capo on third fret. C I used to think the world was flat Am Rarely threw my hat into the crowd F G I felt I had used up my quota of yearning C Used to look in on the children at night Am In the glow of their Donald Duck light F G And frighten myself with the thought of my little ones burning Am G C But oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning Am G C The tide is turning C Satellite buzzing through the endless night Am Exclusive to moonshots and world title fights F G Jesus Christ imagine what it must be earning C Who is the strongest, who is the best Am Who holds the aces, the East or the West F G This is the crap our children are learning Am G C But oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning Am G C The tide is turning Am G C Oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning C Now the satellite's confused 'Cos on Saturday night Am The airwaves were full of compassion and light F And his silicon heart warmed G To the sight of a billion candles burning Am G C Oo, oo, oo, the tide is turning Am G C Oo, oo, oo, the tide is turning [spoken:]The tide is turning Billy C I'm not saying that the battle is won Am But on Saturday night all those kids in the sun F G Wrested technology's sword from the hand of the War Lords Am G C Oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning Am G C The tide is turning Sylvester Am G C over "The tide is turning" in various ways until fade out. Additionally: Roger Waters played this verse live, and included it as an easter egg on cd (it is the morse code all over Radio K.A.O.S. Now the past is over but you are not alone Together we'll fight Sylvester Stallone We will not be dragged down in his South China Sea of macho bullshit and mediocrity Play like all the other verses and include som of the "Oh, oh, oh, ..." afterwards..
