Here's one of my favorites from early Floyd. Enjoy!!

                         Wots...uh the Deal
                  from the albumn Obscured by Clouds
                           by Pink Floyd

The intro and verses of this song consist mainly of eighth notes played on
the first four strings over a descending baseline going from (G, F#, F, E,
D#, D.)

Intro and verses



Heaven sent the promised land
Looks alright from where I stand
'Cause I'm the man on the outside looking in

Waitin' on the first step
Show me where the key is kept
Point me down the right line because it's time
To let me in

Chorus I

Flash the red is - wots...uh the deal?
Got to make it to the next meal
Try to keep up with the turnin' of the wheel

Mile after mile  stone after stone
You turn to speak but you're alone
Million mile from home you're on your own
So let me in

Chorus I

Fly bright by candle light  with her by my side
And if she prefers we never stir again
Someone sent the promised land  and I grabbed it with both hands
Now I'm the man on the inside looking out

Chorus II

   I don't know exactly how the chorus is played, but I do know the basic
chords used. Here they are:

       G     G7(no 3rd)    C        Em        Am        D7      D7sus4

    ---3---   ---1---   ---0---   ---0---   ---0---   ---2---   ---3---
    ---3---   ---3---   ---1---   ---0---   ---1---   ---1---   ---1---
    ---0---   ---0---   ---0---   ---0---   ---2---   ---2---   ---2---
    ---0---   ---3---   ---2---   ---2---   ---2---   ---0---   ---0---
    ---2---   ---x---   ---3---   ---2---   ---0---   ---x---   ---x---
    ---3---   ---x---   ---x---   ---0---   ---x---   ---x---   ---x---



Chorus I

             G            G7           C      E  Am
...So let me in from the cold  Turn my lead into gold

                 G                        G7
'Cause there's a chill wind blowin' in my soul and I think I`m

         D7  D9
 growing old

Chorus II

        G             G7             C             Em   Am
Hear me shout come on in  What's the news, where've you been

               G                  G7                  D7  D9
'Cause there's no wind left in my soul and I've grown old

Sometimes, the last chords in the chorus go something like this:

 D7 D7sus4 D7 D9 D7

                                               - Steve Schablitsky
