Pink Floyd - Dogs

Standard Tuning  
Dm9 x5355x Bb x1333x Asus 5777xx Absus 4667xx

 (acoustic with organ swells on chord changes)
      You gotta be crazy
          Gotta have a real need
    Gotta sleep on your toes      and when you're on the street
      You got to be able         to pick out the easy meat with
          Asus (drums / electric guitar comes in)
     your eyes closed
     Then moving in silently downwind and out of sight
      You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

 (organ gets louder and plays throughout)
      And after a while
      You can work on points for style
   Like a club tie          and a firm handshake
     A certain look in the eye and an easy smile
      You have to be trusted
   by the people that you lie to
  So that when they turn their backs on you
   You'll get the chance to put the knife in

|Dm       |Bb       |Asus     |Absus    |

   You've gotta keep one eye
  Looking over your shoulder You know
     It's gonna get harder,   harder    harder
       As you get older                 Yeah
      And in the end you'll pack up     Fly down south
      And hide your head in the sand
              Just another sad old man
              All alone and dying of cancer

 (quiet synth-brass + organ pad. Acoustic rhythm, Electric hi-lites at same volume)
|Dm       |Bb       |Asus     |Absus    |Dm       |

[Half tempo] (synth-string pad + piano hi-lites )
|C |Dm |C |Dm |C Bb |C D C Bb |C Dm F |Eb |F |Eb |Dm |

 (Acoustic with dog barks Rhodes EP hi-lite)
Dm C Dm C ... Bb C Bb C Bb C Bb C A* A   (A* treble/high than then A that follows)

 (Drums come in Rhodes EP gets louder)
Dm C Dm C Dm C Bb C Bb C A* A A* F E Dm

 (Rhodes EP, Acoustic, Drums)
|Dm       |C               |Dm  |C  |Dm         |C                   |Dm  |C  |Dm  |C  |
 And when you lose control           you'll reap the harvest you have sown
|Dm       |C               |Dm  |C  |Dm                               |Bb   |Bb  |A* A |
   And as the fear grows             the bad blood slows and turns to stone_______

(Electric Guitar Funky tempo starts)
|Dm          |C                      |Dm         |C              |Dm   |C  |
 And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around
|Dm  |C        |Bb   |C         |Bb |C       |Dm     A* A |F       A*   A      Dm   |
      So have a good drown as ya go  down all alone        Dragged down by the stone

[slow 3/3 tempo] (count 1 and 2 and 3 and 1 and 2 and 3 and ...)

(Synth-Bass+String Pad with Syth-Bass solo)

(Acoustic rhythm starts)
|Dm       |Bb       |Asus     |Absus    |

 (Acoustic / Synth-string pad hi-lite on chord changes)
          Gotta admit
          That I'm a little bit confused
          Sometimes it seems to me
          As if I'm just being used
          Asus (cymbals Electric guitar crescendo)
          Gotta stay awake gotta try and shake off
     This creeping malaise
     If I don't stand my own ground
          How can I find my way out of the maze?

 (Organ comes in)
          Deaf, dumb and blind
          You just keep on pretending
     That everyone's expendable
      And no one has a real friend
   And it seems to you the thing to do
    Would be to isolate the winner
      And everything's done under the sun
  And you believe at heart everyone's a killer

|Dm       |Bb       |Asus     |Absus    |

[Half tempo]
 (synth-string pad + piano hi-lites )
|C |Dm |C |Dm |C Bb |C D C Bb |C Dm F |Eb |F |Eb |Dm |

C       F              C                Dm
Who was born in a      house    full of pain
Who was trained not to spit      in the fan
Who was told what   to do        by the man
Who was broken by      trained    personnel
Who was fitted with    collar      and chain
Who was given a       "pat on the back” 
Who was breaking       away    from the pack  (breaking away)
Who was only a         stranger      at home  (only a stranger)
Who was ground         down      in the end   (ground down)
Who was found          dead      on the phone (found dead)

C       F              C                Bb
Who was dragged        down      by the stone

Bb______________       A_______________

A                      F         A7     Dm9
Who was dragged        down      by the stone

Food for thought, based on the drums, the full spacey part is in 6/8 time
