Pink Floyd - 'Pigs (Three Different Ones)'
From the Album "Animals" (1977)
Tabbed by jjhand, with some help from tabs by Ed Evans & elwood2621


This song by Pink Floyd has one of the most Funk inspired basslines 
I've heard from them. David Gilmour played bass parts in the album 
while Roger Waters played the rhythm guitars so live versions will
sound different. Please rate or comment.

Almost worth a quick grin.

You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry."  (last bar ends on low C)

"Hey you, Whitehouse,
Ha ha charade you are.
You house proud town mouse,
Ha ha charade you are
You're trying to keep our feelings off the street."

"You're nearly a real treat,
 All tight lips and cold feet
 And do you feel abused?
(Heavy Breathing).... You!!
You gotta stem the evil tide,
And keep it all on the inside.
Mary you're nearly a treat,
Mary you're nearly a treat
But you're really a cry."
