Pink Floyd - High Hopes Chords

[intro] x4
Cm  Cm7  Ab

[verse]
Cm            Cm7
Beyond the horizon of
    Ab
the place we lived when we were young
Cm            Cm7             Ab
In a world of magnets and miracles
Cm                   Cm7
Our thoughts strayed constantly
        Ab
and without boundary
    Cm               Cm7               Ab
The ringing of the division bell had begun

[post-verse]
Ab/C       Bb7        G7sus4           G7
Along the long road and on down the causeway
Ab/C          Bb7             G7sus4     G
o they still meet there by the cut?

[verse]
Cm          Cm7
There was a ragged band
    Ab
who followed in our footsteps
Cm             Cm7                  Ab
Running before time took our dreams away
Cm                   Cm7
Leaving the myriad small creatures
      Ab
trying to tie us to the ground
Cm           Cm7             Ab
To a life consumed by slow decay....

[chorus]
              Cm       Gm   Ab   Bb
The grass was greener...
              Cm        Eb   Fm   Gm Ab
The light was brighter...
                Cm      Gm   Ab   Bb
When friends surrounded...
              Cm        Eb   Fm   Gm Ab
The nights of wonder...

[verse]
Cm                 Cm7
Looking beyond the embers
   Ab
of bridges glowing behind us
Cm                  Cm7
To a glimpse of how green
              Ab
it was on the other side
Cm          Cm7
Steps taken forwards
    Ab
but sleepwalking back again
Cm               Cm7               Ab
ragged by the force of some inner tide

[post-verse]
Ab/C        Bb7         G7sus4  G7
At a higher altitude with flag  unfurled
Ab/C           Bb7
We reached the dizzy heights
        G7sus4     G
of that dreamed of world

[instrumental break]
Em  F  Em  F  Em  F  Em  F  G7sus4
Cm  Cm7  Ab  Cm  Cm7  Ab

[verse]
Cm            Cm7       Ab
Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
Cm               Cm7          Ab
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Cm                   Cm7            Ab
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Cm                    Cm7           Ab
Go down this road I've been so many times...

[chorus]
              Cm       Gm   Ab   Bb
The grass was greener...
              Cm        Eb   Fm   Gm Ab
The light was brighter...
              Cm       Gm   Ab   Bb
The taste was sweeter...
              Cm        Eb   Fm   Gm Ab
The nights of wonder...
                Cm       Gm   Ab   Bb
With friends surrounded...
              Cm        Eb   Fm   Gm Ab
The dawn mist glowing...
          Cm       Gm   Ab   Bb
The water flowing...
            Cm        Eb   Fm   Gm Ab
The endless river...
            Cm       Gm   Ab   Bb
Forever and ever...
