Pink Floyd Echoes Guitar Tabs

“Echoes” is a song by English rock band Pink Floyd, and the sixth and final track from their 1971 album Meddle. It was written in 1970 by all four members of the group.

Containing several extended instrumental passages, largely ambient sound effects, and musical improvisation, the track has a running time of 23:31 and comprises the entire second side of the vinyl and cassette recordings.

It also appears in shortened form as the fifth track on the compilation album which took its name, Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd. The composition was originally assembled from separate fragments, and was later split in two parts to serve as both the opening and closing numbers in the band’s film Live at Pompeii.

Overhead the albatross
B
Hangs motionless upon the air
F#m
and deep beneath the rolling waves
G#
In labyrinth's of coral caves
C#m
The echo of a distant time
B
Comes willowing across the sand
F#m
And everything is green and
G#
Submarine.

C#
And no one showed us to the land
G#
And no one knows the where or whys
F#m
But something stirs and something tries
G#                               A
And starts to climb towards the light

Lyrics:
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
And no one called us to the land
And no one knows the where’s or why’s
Something stirs and something tries
Starts to climb toward the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can
And no one called us to the land
And no one crosses there alive
No one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun
Almost everyday you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me
To rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabys
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky
