Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)


Yet another tune that is wicked easy on the face of it.  This song is in 5/4 (except for the guitar solo section).  There are full transcriptions of this in the Pink Floyd issue of Guitar Legends and in Guitar World.

Bm7  [Riff A]

Money, get away!  Get a good job with more pay and you're O.K.


Money, it's a gas.  Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.

F#m7  [Riff B]                       Em  [still Riff B]           Bm7

New car, caviar, four-star daydream, think I'll buy me a football team.


Money, get back!  I'm all right, Jack, keep your hands off of my stack.

Money, it's a hit.  Don't give me that do goody-good bullshit.

I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set

And I think I need a Lear jet.


INSTRUMENTAL SOLO:  [Riff C as transition, solo under Riff A]


Money, it's a crime.  Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie.

Money, so they say, is the root of all evil today.

But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that they're giving.

None away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away.
