    He watched the silver boats in the sunset,
F   Em   Dm                G                F
^    ^   ^    Riding into port on gentle breezes,
F   Em   Dm              Dm/C           Bm7b5                 E
^    ^   ^    Heard the seagull's cry...     echo 'round the bay,
   E7     Am             G                F
As he sat in his chair,     by the open window!


F   G  Am                        G                 F
^   ^   ^    Ships had been his life from ten to eighty,
F   G  Am                 G                  F
^   ^   ^    And now the time had come for resting,
F   Em  Dm                Dm/C                Bm7(b5)     E                E7
^   ^   ^   His sons, and their sons too, had taken over all that needed doing,
G                      F
   A time for remi - niscing!


F   G  Am               Asus4                     Em7                 Em7   D   Am

   Em7                  Em7   D    Am
To ride the tide of e - ter - ni - ty!

   A little bay lit - up by moonlight,       like something from a fairy - tale,
F  Em  Dm            Dm/C           Bm7b5             E     E7      Am    G          F
^   ^   ^  And never in his life had he seen such a lovely night as this,   heaven kissed!
