    This tune is mighty lonesome. A powerful number. This arrangement has us playing up the neck. Slide in to those seventh fret unison notes to really bring out those ancient tones.

    David Gilmour solo. On the mandolin. Could bring a tear to a glass eye. Gilmour uses space masterfully in this sweet intro solo. Notice how most of the phrases come in just after the downbeat.

Wish You Were Here lyrics

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from hell? Blue skies from pain? Can you tell a green field From a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade Your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change? Did you exchange A walk-on part in the war For a leading role in a cage? How I wish, how I wish you were here We're just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl Year after year Running over the same old ground What have we found? The same old fears Wish you were here
