Wish You Were Here chords
Pink Floyd

G Em  G Em  G Em  A Em A G  2x

C                        D
So, so you think you can tell 
            Am
Heaven from Hell, 
                G
Blue skies from pain. 
                     D
Can you tell a green field 
                  C
From a cold steel rail? 
               Am
A smile from a veil? 
                     G
Do you think you can tell? 

                        C
And did they get you to trade 
                D
Your heroes for ghosts? 
              Am
Hot ashes for trees? 
              G
Hot air for a cool breeze? 
                 D
Cold comfort for change? 
              C
And did you exchange 
                      Am
A walk on part in the war 
                     G
For a lead role in a cage? 

G Em  G Em  G Em  A Em A   G  

C                               D
How I wish, how I wish you were here. 
           Am
We're just two lost souls 

Swimming in a fish bowl, 
G
Year after year, 
D                     
Running over the same old ground. 
             C
What have we found? 
             Am
The same old fears. 
              G
Wish you were here.

G Em  G Em  G Em  A Em A G  4x

This is dead on. Some of the others have the chords in the wrong places

Should this be capo'd or something? Playing with the song it doesn't match at all.

Depending on which recording you're listening to, older groups recorded onto tapes which tended to be sped up slightly when mastered and released, which is why it might sound higher than standard tuning but lower than a 1/2 step raise. This tab is spot on though.
