Play Intro Part 1 and Part 2 straight one after the other.

Now the lyrics start and we will use only Part 1 (this is why I broke them down.)


(Intro Part 1)                                                                         
This old house is falling down around my ears

    G             D             A    (repeat only ending section of Part 1)
I'm drowning in a river of my tears

(Intro Part 1)
When all my will is gone you hold me sway

  G               D       A       D
I need you at the dimming of the day



e|------------2-----------------------|  
B|-0--2--3/5-----3--------------------|     let's call this
G|---------------2--------------------|        "Part 3"
D|------------0-----0---0-------------|  
A|----0--2-------------4-2-0----------|  
D|-3----------------------------------| 



A                                      E
You pull me like the moon pulls on the tide

A                                    E
You know just where I keep my better side

A   D   G
uuu uuu uuu


(Intro Part 1)
What days have come to keep us far apart

G                D               A    (repeat only ending section of Part 1)
A broken promise or a broken heart

(Intro Part 1)
Now all the bonnie birds have wheeled away

  G               D       A       D    (repeat Part 3)
I need you at the dimming of the day


A                                 E
Come the night you're only what I want

A                                   E
Come the night you could be my confidant


A   D   G
uuu uuu uuu



(Intro Part 1)
I see you on the street in company

G                 D               A    (repeat only ending section of Part 1)
Why don't you come and ease your mind with me


(Intro Part A)
I'm living for the night we steal away

  G               D       A       D    (repeat Part 3)
I need you at the dimming of the day

  G               D       A       D    
I need you at the dimming of the day  


e|------------2-----------------------|  
B|-0--2--3/5--------------------------|     
G|------------------------------------|      Ending Part    
D|------------0-----------------------|  
A|----0--2----------------------------|  
D|-3----------------------------------|

I used drop down D (as Gilmour does). It sounds much better.
