Standard tuning, and simple strumming. The timing is simple but also key to this
song. Repeat the chord progression below for the following verses.


[Verse]

A                    G                    D
Got outta town on a boat going to southern islands
A                  G                  D
Sailing a reach before a a following sea
A                       G               D
She was making for the trades on the outside
A                G           D
And the downhill run to Paapete
A                        G                 D
Off this wind on this heading lie the Marqueses
A                             G        D    Bm     A
We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way
A                     G                  D
In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
A                         G              D      Bm     A
But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away


[Pre-Chorus]

     A
Think about
  G               D          G        A
Think about how many times I have fallen
  G               D          G        A
Spirits are using me larger voices calling
  G                  D          G           A
What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten


[Chorus]

 D              G         A
I have been around the world
 D               G        A
Looking for that woman girl
  D              G      A
Who knows love can endure 
A                    G             D
And you know it will
A                    G             D
And you know it will


[Verse]

  A                       G                   D
When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
  A                  G               D
You understand now why you came this way
 A                          G                  D
Cause the truth you might be runnin from is so small
 A                       G
But its as big as the promise
      D            Bm     A
The promise of a coming day

  A                       G                   D
So Im sailing for tommorrow my dreams are a dying
  A                  G               D
And my love is an anchor tied to you
 A                          G
Tied with a silver chain
                  D
I have my ship and all her flags are a flying
 A                       G
She is all that I have left
      D            Bm     A
And music is her name

Pre-Chorus]

     A
Think about
  G               D          G        A
Think about how many times I have fallen
  G               D          G        A
Spirits are using me larger voices calling
  G                  D          G           A
What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten

[Chorus]

 D              G         A
I have been around the world
 D               G        A
Looking for that woman girl
 D              G      A
Who knows love can endure 
A                    G             D
And you know it will
A                    G             D
And you know it will


[Verse]

  A                       G            D
So we cheated and we lied and we tested
  A                  G    D
And we never failed to fail
 A                   G      D
It was the easiest thing to do
 A                  G      D
You will survive being bested
 A                       G
Somebody fine will come along
      D            Bm     A
Make me forget about loving you

In the southern cross............

Me too! Good Job. One tiny lyrical correction in the verse. It's not "Can't Ignore" It's "Can Endure"

"Looking for that woman girl, who knows love Can Endure.... And you know it will".
