Words and Music By David Gilmour

Notes on Music:
  Letters in brackets [] are single bass notes.
  Question marks mean that I haven't figured out that part.
  Time signature is 3/4 or 6/8, depending on how you look at it.
  Strumming pattern >=down, <=up

Notes on Transcription:
  Based on Columbia Records/CBS recording "About Face",
  using CBS/Fox Video of David Gilmour In Concert for visual reference,
  This version is written as Gilmour plays it with a capo on the third
  I have also filled in several missing chords.
  If you have the chord changes for the bass solo and outro, please

(Capo on 3)

(Similar rhthym played throughout first and second verses.)

D                                Am         D
Some of them standing, some were waiting in line.
D                                   Am           [B]   C     [B]
As if there was something that they thought they might find.
Am                            Em            D           C     [B]
Taking some strength from the feelings that always were shared.
Am                         D              G
And in the background, the eyes that just stared.

D                           Am          D
What was it brought you out here in the dark?
D                       Am     [B]  C     [B]
Was it your only way of making your mark?
Am                         Em     D       C     [B]
Did you get rid of all the voices in your head?
Am                           D                G
Do you now miss them and the things that they said?

(Bass Solo)
F#m E D Bm E Bm...???...Bm  E

E                         Bm            E
On your own admission you raised up the knife.
E                               Bm           D     [C#]
And you brought it down ending another man's life.
Bm                        F#m   E        D
When it was done you just threw down the blade,
          Bm                              E         A
While the red blood spread wider like the anger you made.

  E                            Bm         E
I don't want this anger that's burning in me.
     E                            Bm         D     [C#]
It's something from which it's so hard to be free.
    Bm                        F#m    E         D
But none of the tears that we cry in sorrow or rage,
    Bm                      E             A
Can make any difference, or turn back the page.

(Repeat Chords from last verse)
