Song Name: Grantchester Meadows
Artist: Pink Floyd
Album: Ummagumma (Disc Two)
Run Time: 7:26
Track Number: 5
Sung By: Roger Waters
Written By: Roger Waters
- The song features Waters' voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar and the sounds of different types of birds. The lyrics describe a pastoral and dream-like scene at the Grantchester meadows in Cambridgeshire, England. This is where fellow band member David Gilmour grew up. Interestingly, considering the song's idyllic setting, a fly can be heard being swatted and killed at its end.
- "Grantchester Meadows" was incorporated into The Man And The Journey as "Daybreak."
- The song was to be on Echoes: The Best Of Pink Floyd, and would have been the only song from Ummagumma to be included on that compilation.
