Pink Floyd - Time - Uke

Intro: Lead Guitar and synth (with octoban percussion)

F#m F#m A A
Tick-ing a-way the moments that make up a dull--day;
E E F#m F#m
frit-ter and waste the hours--in an off-hand way;
Kick-ing a-round on a piece of ground--in your hometown;
E E F#m F#m
wait-ing for some-one or some-thing to show_you the way.----
Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Amaj7
Tired of ly--ing in the sun--shine,stay-ing home--to watch the rain,
Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Amaj7 Dmaj7 Dmaj7
you are young and life is long,and there is time to kill to-day.
C#m7 C#m7
And then one day,you find--ten years have got be-hind you.
Bm7 Bm7 E E F#m F#m
No one told you when to run....You missed the start--ing gun.

Intro: Lead Guitar

F#m F#m A A
run and you run-to catch up with the Sun, but it's sink-ing;
E E F#m F#m
rac-ing a-round to come up be--hind you a--gain.
The Sun is the same in a rel-a-tive way, but you're old-er,
E E F#m F#m
short-er of breath, and one-day clos-er to death.
Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Amaj7
Ev--'ry year is get--ing short-er, nev-er seem to find the time.
Dmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Amaj7
Plans that ei-ther come to naught, or half a page of scrib-bled lines.
Dmaj7 Dmaj7 C#m7 C#m7 Bm7 Bm7
Hang-ing on in qui-et des--per-a---tion is the Eng-lish way. The time is gone.
Bm7 Bm7
The song is o--ver. Thought I'd some-thing more to say.

About this song

Time is a song from British progressive rock band Pink Floyd's 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon, and the only song on the album credited to all four members of the band. It is noted for its long introductory passage of clocks chiming and alarms ringing, recorded as a quadrophonic test by Alan Parsons, not specifically for the album. Each clock at the beginning of the song was recorded separately in an antiques store.
