-----------------

This is an interesting song.  Many suspended notes, and strange chord 
progressions.  But that's the incredible Barrett style, which should be 
appreciated. I've been requesting this song for a long time on the 
decided to let my perfect-pitch hearing do it.  And sure enough, it 
worked.  

*NOTE:  This is the version found in the Crazy Diamond Box Set.  The 
ACOUSTIC version.  To play the original, tune your guitar HALF step down. 
 The acoustic version is the same, but I think Syd tuned his guitar half 
step down to make the original.  This version is track 15 on "Barrett" in 
the Crazy Diamond Box Set. The original version is the same, but half 
step lower.*

Octopus - Words & Music by Syd Barrett

-------


B       Bsus4         G5       C7
Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'

            A
you have no word

B               Bsus4
trip, trip to a dream dragon

B                    Bsus4
hide your wings in a ghost tower

B                   Bsus4               B
sails crackiling at ev'ry plate we break

B                           Bb
cracked by scattered needles 

A
little minute gong

A
coughs and clears his throat

A
madam you see before you stand

A
hey ho, never be still

A
the old original favourite gran

A
grasshoppers green herbarian band

A                            F#7(add F)
and the tune they play in us confide...

B          Bsus4         G5       C7
so trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'

            A
you have no word

F#        F#sus4      F#sus4(add A) Bsus4
close our eyes to the octopus       ride!

F#                  F#sus4
Isn't it good to be lost in the wood

F#              F#sus4              F#   G(3rd fret)
isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood

Ab                  Absus4
twenty even less to me than I thought

       Ab                     Absus4
with a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds

Ab                    Absus4         Bsus4(add Bb)
clover honey pots and mystic shining feed...

B                               Bsus4
well, the madcap laughed at the man on the border

G5      C7
hey ho, huff the talbot

B                        Bsus4
Cheetah he cried shouted kangaroo

   B                       Bsus4
so through their tree they cried

F#              F#sus4

F#        F#sus4      F#sus4(add a)  Bsus4
close our eyes to the octopus        ride!

B                         Bsus4
The madcap laughed at the man on the border

G5      C7
hey ho, huff the talbot

B                           Bsus4
the winds they blew and the leaves did wag

B                        Bsus4
and they'll never put me in their bag

B                       Bsus4
the seas will reach and always see

B                  Bsus4
so high you go, so low you creep

B                     Bsus4
the winds it blows in tropical heat

B                         Bsus4
the drones they throng on mossy seats

B                       Bsus4
the squeaking door will always creep

B                      Bsus4
two up, two down we'll never meet

   B                Bsus4
so merrily trip for good my side

F#              F#sus4
Please leave us here

F#        F#sus4      F#sys4(add A)  Bsus4
close our eyes to the octopus        ride!


That should clear up any complications.  This is not a very hard song, if 
you know where the chords are.
