Subject:Breathe in the air
Album: Dark side of the moon
Band: Pink Floyd

There are many versions of this on the net, but no one I've
seen so far uses the right chords, so here is my contribution.......

Em/D [0 2 2 0 3 0] or (Alt.2) [0 7 5 7 0 0]

A7 [x 0 2 0 2 0] or (Alt. 2) [5 7 5 6 5 5]
(Use Alt.2 together with Alt.2 Em/D)

C/B [3 3 2 0 0 0] or [X 3 5 4 5 3]

Bm [X 2 4 4 3 2]

F [1 3 3 2 1 1]

G [3 5 5 4 3 3]

Eb [X 6 8 8 8 6]

Em [0 2 2 0 0 0]

Em/D                    A7
Breathe, breathe in the air 

Em/D               A7
Don't be afraid to care 

Em/D                   A7
Leave, but don't leave me 

Em/D                           A7
Look around and chose your own ground 

For long you live and high you fly 

And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry 

And all you touch and all you see 
   G                  F    Eb
Is all your life will ever be 

Em/D            A7   
Run, run rabbit run 

Em/D                      A7   
Dig that hole, forget the sun 

Em/D                         A7  
And when at last the work is done 

Em/D                                       A7
Don't sit down, it's time to start another one 

For long you live and high you fly 

But only if you ride the tide 

And balanced on the biggest wave 

    G              F     Eb    Em
You race toward an early grave. 

Continues with "On the run" and "Time"
"Time" ends with the chords

Dm [X X  0 2 3 1] 
F [1 3 3 2 1 1] 

and then directly to.....


Em/D       A7
Home, home again 

Em/D                      A7
I like to be there when I can 

Em/D                    A7
When I come in cold and tired 

Em/D                                  A7
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire 

Far away across the field 

The tolling of the iron bell 

Calls the faithful to their knees 

   G               F            Bm
To hear the softly spoken magic spells. 

Continues with  "The great gig in the sky"

The F and G chords sound better if you leave the high E open, so the F is played as X21033 and G is played X55430. Just a suggestion, it is how I play it and it sounds better to me. Cheers!!

Some of these chords are wrong....i'm really refering to the first one mostly...it's starting from low E ... 0-2-4-0-0-0..i know this for a fact...it's on the video ..the making of dark side of the moon.. they show you how to play some of the songs..thats the chord he's using..ohh yeah it's not a full F that they play either....and the chord after that is the same but you move up 2 frets....then it goes....from the A string... 5-4-5-6..then 5-4-5-4...try it you'll see
