When The Tigers Broke Free (Pink Floyd)

C G 1. It was just before dawn one miserable Ami C G morning in black forty-four.. C G When the forward commander was told to sit tight.. C G C When asked that his men be withdrawn.. G C And the generals gave thanks as the other ranks G C held be the enemy tanks - for a while.. C G And then the Anzio bridgehead was held for the price Ami G C of a few hundred ordinary lives.. C G 2. And kind old King George sent mother Ami C G a note when he heard that father was gone.. C G It was, as I recall, in the form of a scroll C F G C with golden leaf and ,all.. G C And I found it one day G C in a drawer of old photographs hidden away.. C G And my eyes still grow damp to remember C G C his Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp.. C 3. It was dark all around.. G There was frost in the ground C Ami G when the Tigers broke free.. C G C G C G And noone survived from the Royal Fusiliers Company C.. C They were all left behind.. G Most of them dead.. C The rest of them dying.. C G C And that's how the High Command took my Daddy G C from me....
