FAT OLD SUN
Pink Floyd
"Atom Heart Mother"

(Gilmour)

[Intro]
(Bells chime for a few seconds)
G        G

[Verse]
G                            D
When that fat old sun in the sky is falling
F               C                 G
Summer evening birds are calling
G              D
Summer sunday and a year
F                   C           G        G
The sound of music in my ears
G              D              F                C
Distant bells, new mown grass smells so sweet
G            D              
By the river holding hands 
F               C             G
Roll me up and lay me down

[Chorus]
          C          Bm                Am7
And if you see, don't make a sound.
                    G
Pick your feet up off the ground
           C            Bm             Am7
And if you hear as the warm night falls
                       Dm
A silver sound from a tongue so strange
Gm          Dm
Sing to me, Sing to me...

F      D     

[Verse]
          G                  D
When that fat old sun in the sky is falling
F               C                 G
Summer evening birds are calling
G                   D
Children's laughter in my ears
F                  C           G
The last sunlight disappears


[Chorus]
           C      Bm                Am7
And if you see, don't make a sound
                  G
Pick your feet up off the ground
            C           Bm              Am7
And if you hear as the warm night falls
                        Dm
A silver sound from a tongue so strange
Gm          Dm
Sing to me, Sing to me...

F       D 
          
          G (Solo)
When that fat old sun...

(Solo pattern: G D F C)

There is a tiny mistake at the end, it should actually be like:

e-|----------------------------------------------------------|
B-|----------------------------------------------------------|
G-|----------------------------------------------------------|
D-|-----------------12----12--14--14b(16)--14--12\-----------|
A-|-------12---12-14---14------------------------------------|
E-|-12/14----14----------------------------------------------|

In your version the missing second 14th on the low E makes it sound as if there's a note missing at the end
