*from 'Sail Away' (1972)*


*CAPO 4th FRET*

(Original Key: E)


Verse 1:

C      F              C
 Every-one has gone a-way;
G7                Em      C
 Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

C       F               C
 No one cared enough to stay.
A#                Em      C
 Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

Chorus 1:

    F             C              Dm7/C                    F
You must remember me, old man; I know that you can if you try.
        C    F       D7sus     D7   F                  F/G      C
So just open up your eyes, old man; look who's come to say good-bye.

Interlude:

G7  C/G, C7  F  D7, F  C (x2)

Verse 2:

    C                Gm       F        C                  F
The sun has left the sky, old man; the birds have flown a-way.
    Csus   C       D7sus    D7        F        F/G       C
And no one came to cry, old man; good-bye, old man, good-bye.

Verse 3:

    C               Gm       F          C               F
You want to stay, I know you do, but it ain't no use to try.
     Csus    C             D7sus     D7
'Cos I'll be here, and I'm just like you,
     F        F/G       C
Good-bye, old man, good-bye.

Chorus 2:

      F/G          C                          G7                  C
Won't be no God to comfort you; you taught me not to believe that lie.
          F                C          F
You don't need anybody, no-body needs you;
C#dim7          Em         D#maj7
 Don't cry, old man, don't cry;
C#dim7 Dm6  C
 Every-body dies.
