Southern Cross chords
Crosby, Stills and Nash 

Capo II *

G G  F F  C C
G G  F F  C G

           G         F                     C
Got out of town on a boat gon' to southern islands.
          G     F                  C
Sailing a reach before a following sea.
        G              F             C
She was making for the trades on the outside,
        G        F           C
And the downhill run to Papeete.

        G            F               C
Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas.
       G              C                Am     G
We got eighty feet of waterline nicely making way.
     G            F                  C
In a noisy bar in Avalon, I tried to call you,
         G                F            C         Am   G
But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away.

F               C          F      G
Think about how many times I have fallen.
F           C         F             G
Spirits are using me; larger voices callin'.
F                   C          F            G
What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten.
            C   F      G      C                F     G
I have been around the world, lookin' for that woman-girl
    C          F     G
Who knows love can endure.
                 G G  F F  C C
And you know it will.
                 G G  F F  C G
And you know it will

         G                F             C
When you see the Southern Cross for the first time,
    G              F                 C
You understand now why you came this way.
           G                  F               C
'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from is so small,
            G          F            C            Am     G
But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a comin' day.

       G           F                         C
So I'm sailing for tomorrow. My dreams are a-dying.
       G          F                   C           Am     G
And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a silver chain.
G         F                             C
I have my ship, and all her flags are a-flying.
       G               F         C     Am     G
She is all that I have left, and music is her name.

F               C          F      G
Think about how many times I have fallen.
F           C         F             G
Spirits are using me; larger voices callin'.
F                   C          F             G
What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten.
            C   F      G      C                F     G
I have been around the world, lookin' for that woman-girl
    C          F      G
Who knows love can endure.
                 G G  F F  C C
And you know it will.
                 G G  F F  C G
And you know it will

      G              F           C
So we cheated and we lied and we tested.
       G               F                C                G
And we never failed to fail; it was the easiest thing to do.
G        F             C
You will survive being bested.
G                  F                  C            Am     G
Somebody fine will come along make me forget about loving you

                     G G  F F  C C / G G  F F  C G
In the Southern Cross.
