Comfortably Numb Chord Chart
by Pink Floyd

Welcome to my Comfortably Numb chord chart by Pink Floyd. I teach this song to my students once that start feeling more comfortable with strumming and are ready to move on to some barre chord work since this song has a Bm chord in it. The song is mostly open chord but Bm does appear a lot in the verses which can make it a little trickier to play. No worries, you can use the east Bm chord below to play a long with.

Comfortably Numb Chord Chart
By Pink Floyd

Intro:  Bm x2

Bm                                 A    
Hello.  Is there anybody in there?    
                                  |G      Em|               Bm   
Just nod if you can hear me.       Is there anyone home?
 Bm                                         A    
Come on, now.  I hear you’re feeling down.
      | G                       Em|              Bm    
Well, I can ease your pain, get you on your feet again.
  Bm                                   A    
Relax.   I need some information first.
| G                   Em|                   Bm    
Just the basic facts:  Can you show me where it hurts?


Chorus:

D                                             A    
  There is no pain, you are receding.
D                                                   A    
   A distant ship smoke on the horizon.
C                                                     G    
   You are only coming through in waves.
          C                                                           G    
Your lips move, but I can’y hear what you’re saying.
          D                               A    
When I was a child I had a fever.
        D                                       A    
My hands felt just like two balloons.
C                                                G    
   Now I got that feeling once again.  I can’t explain, you would not
C                                              G    
understand.  This is not how I am.
A    |C                 G |                         D    
I            have become comfortably numb.

Solo:
D A D A C G C G

A    |C                 G |                         D    
I            have become comfortably numb.

Bm                     A    
Ok.  Just a little pinprick.
                                   | G       Em |                   Bm    
There’ll be no more, Aaaaaah!     But you may feel a little sick.
                  Bm                                    A    
Can you stand up?  I do believe it’s working good.
                           |G                 Em |                  Bm    
That’ll keep you going for the show.       Come on its time to go.


Chorus:
D                                             A    
   There is no pain, you are receding.
D                                                    A    
   A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
C                                                     G    
   You are only coming through in waves.
          C                                                           G    
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying.
          D                                      A    
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
D                                         A    
    Out of the corner of my eye.
C                                             G    
    I turned to look but it was gone.  I cannot put my finger
C                                                        G    
on it now.  The child is grown, the dream is gone.
A    |C                G |                          D      D
I            have become comfortably numb.


Solo (repeat below progression 8 times):

Bm A | G - Em - | Bm

End on Bm
