Verse 1:

C   Em       Am   G F
I'm sailing away,     set an open course

        G                  C     Em
for the virgin sea. 'Cause I've  got to be

Am    G  F                              G
free,      free to face the life that's ahead of me.

Am                            G
    On board I'm the captain,   so climb aboard.

Am                            G
    We'll search for tomorrow   on ev'ry shore. And I'll

C Em          Am   G F
I look to the sea,     reflections in the 

               G         C           Em
waves spark my memories. Some happy, some 

Am   G F                                       G
sad,     I think of childhood friends, and the dreams we had.

Am                            G
    We lived happily forever,   so the story goes.

Am                            G
    But somehow we missed out   on the pots of gold. And I'll

C    Em            Am  G F Ending
try, oh Lord, I'll try     to carry on

They climbed on aboard their starship
We're headed for the skies...
