Country Song - Lyrics



Lyrics - David Gilmour / Nick Mason
Roger Waters / Richard Wright

Music - David Gilmour / Nick Mason

He made his way to the border
In the shadows under the trees
Down by a stream in a hollow
Turn your head feel the breeze

And the red queen was waiting for the news
For the white king to move
And the balance hung upon the head of one who tried
To stay within the shadows and keep his undercover secret tight

They let him in by a back way
Into a chamber reserved for the queen
She took the note that he gave her
Opened it slowly and started to read

Run to the treasury and bring me back some gold
Give it to the pawn who came she cried
She says the white king thinks the game of chess is wrong
And all the courtiers crowded her
And this is what she told the gathered throng

Go to the store by the dungeon
Take all the red paint, take all the white
Make up a new warm colour
????? your neighbour we'll be alright

There'll be no game today she cried across the board
Everyday will be a holiday
And all the pieces cheered as ??????? spread abroad
And the pink queen sat and smiled at the cat who smiled back.
