VERSE 1
********
Em        Am                          Em
Times are dark now, our empire's gone astray
            Am                        Em
Forces from down south, armada on the way
               Am                      Em
So we call our greatest men to run the barricade
                       Am                              Em
Shine your light where shadows fall and wash the night away


-----------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
*******
A
Sail on for your queen

Sail into history
                      E
You will never be the same
A
Sail on for country

Into our memory
                        C
Time will remember your name
D             Em
Dragon on the sea

VERSE 2
********
Em                Am                Em
Fires burn now in once our tranquil bays
                Am                         Em
Tall ships that rain down thunderbolts and flames
                  Am                          Em
Go and raise your pirate flag, cast the lines away
                      Am                                   Em
Take your fleet where darkness falls and turn the night to day

Great job on this. I have nearly completed this in GP format, but just wanted to offer an update to this file so that mine does not appear to be lifted. During the opening stanza, the lead synth plays the following four bars twice:

E|--7--5-----|--5-----5--|--5--------|----------|
B|--------8--|-----8-----|-----8--7--|--L--5----|
G|-----------|-----------|-----------|----------|
D|-----------|-----------|-----------|----------|
A|-----------|-----------|-----------|----------|
E|-----------|-----------|-----------|----------|

Also, the bass guitar during the intro and also later on that provides the rhythm I found to be almost like this:

E S S S S E S S S S S S S S E S S S S E S S S S S S S S
|---------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|*--------------------------------|-------------7----7---7---7---7-|
|*--7----------7----7---7---7---7-|----------------0---0---0---0---|
|---0--0-0-0-0----0---0---0---0---|--5--5-5-5-5--------------------|

E S S S S E S S S S S S S S E S S S S E S S S S S S S S

--5--5-5-5-5--------------------|--7----------7----7---7---7---7-|
--------------------------------|--0--0-0-0-0----0---0---0---0---|

I hope that makes sense, let me know if you have any other input. As I wrote, I have this and several other Ayreon songs ready for transcription, along with a few from Star One's Victim Of ...

I thoroughly enjoy how much effort you put into the simplest of things that make your submissions incredibly easy to follow and great to learn from/compare to.

Five Stars *****
