When The Tigers Broke Free

Pink Floyd

   C                       G
1. It was just before dawn one miserable
   Ami        C           G
   morning in black forty-four..
   C                              G
   When the forward commander was told to sit tight..
        C              G          C
   When asked that his men be withdrawn..
           G             C
   And the generals gave thanks as the other ranks
        G            C
   held be the enemy tanks - for a while..
       C                            G
   And then the Anzio bridgehead was held for the price
        Ami           G      C
   of a few hundred ordinary lives..
   C                        G
2. And kind old King George sent mother
     Ami          C          G
   a note when he heard that father was gone..
   C                    G
   It was, as I recall, in the form of a scroll
   C           F        G C
   with golden leaf and ,all..
       G          C
   And I found it one day
                      G                  C
   in a drawer of old photographs hidden away..
          C                       G
   And my eyes still grow damp to remember
               C               G          C
   his Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp..
3. It was dark all around..
   There was frost in the ground
   C        Ami          G
   when the Tigers broke free..
   C                  G                  C             G C  G
   And noone survived from the Royal Fusiliers Company C..
   They were all left behind..
   Most of them dead..
   The rest of them dying..
   C                  G                    C
   And that's how the High Command took my Daddy
   G    C
   from me....
