Hey, You

Words & Music:

Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)


Em  Dm  Em  Dm



Hey, you, out there in the cold, getting lonely, getting old,


Can you feel me?

Hey you, standing in the aisle, with itchy feet and fading smile,

Can you feel me?

Dsus2                       D7       G  D  C

Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.

Bm          Am          Em  Dm

Don't give in without a fight.


Hey you, out there on your own, sitting naked by the phone,

Would you touch me?

Hey you, with your ear against the wall, waiting for someone to call,

Would you touch me?

Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?

Open your heart, I'm coming home.


Am  Em  [3x]


C          D    G  D C

But it was only fantasy.

C                         G   D   C

The wall was too high, as you can see.

C                D              G   D     C

No matter how he tried he could not break free.

                  D7       Em  Dm  Em  Dm  Em  Dm  Em Dm

And the worms ate into his brain.


Hey you, out there on the road, always doing what you're told,

Can you help me?

Hey you, out there beyond the wall, breaking bottles in the hall,

Can you help me?

Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all.

Bm               Am           Em(add9)

Together we stand, divided we fall.
