Moonfleet Bay
Chris de Burgh

Hi folks! Thats my version of Chris deBurgh's "Moonfleet Bay" from his latest Album 
"Moonfleet and other stories". I think he plays it in "G" but I usually play it in "D".
Hope you enjoy it!

Intro: D-D-G-D-G-Bm-A-Bm

Verse 1:

  Bm      D        Em    Bm
Alas poor John, he was a prisoner,
D                  G      D
Fortune’s fool for many a day,
G       D       Em     Bm
Blinded by that cursed diamond,
Em       Bm       F#m     Bm
With his freedom, he must pay;

Verse 2:

    Bm    D       E        Bm
And so it was for faithful Elzevir,
D                  G        D
Cast in chains for ten long years,
     G       D       Em       Bm
With never a word of blame or anger,
Em       Bm          F#m  Bm
Just for John, t’was only tears;

Pre-Chorus:

Bm    Em       Bm
Oh oh oh, only tears,
      A
Oh oh oh ...

Chorus:

D                    G         D
Blow, wind blow, and send them home again,
G       D         A
Set the sails for England’s way,
G      A        D        Bm
Many a heart is grieving for them,
Em         Bm      A         D
Bring them back to Moonfleet Bay;


    Bm     D            Em       Bm
And as for Grace, she’d still be waiting,
D               G    D
Waiting for her only love,
G     D       Em     Bm      Em     Bm
Every night a candle burning at her window,
F#m       Bm
Should he come;

Bm    Em            Bm
Oh oh oh, should he come,
      A
Oh oh oh ...


Chorus:

D                    G         D
Blow, wind blow, and send them home again,
G       D         A
Set the sails for England’s way,
G      A        D        Bm
Many a heart is grieving for them,
Em         Bm      A         D
Bring them back to Moonfleet Bay;

D                    G         D
Blow, wind blow, and send them home again,
G       D         A
Set the sails for England’s way,
G      A        D        Bm
Many a heart is grieving for them,
Em         Bm      A         D
Bring them back to Moonfleet Bay;

G      A        D        Bm
Many a heart is grieving for them,
Em         Bm      A         D
Bring them back to Moonfleet Bay;

The original is indeed in the G key so for the ones who want to play along the original,
You can push the up button next to transpose (left side of the tab) 5 times till it says +5
In this way you will get the chords that match the album version
