INTRO:  G,  C,  G,  C,   F,  C,  G,  C,   C


         C            Em          F            C
Have you stood by the ocean, on a diamond-hard morning

    G            Dm        C            G
And felt the hor-izon stir deep in your soul

            C         Em            F                C
Watched the wake of a steamer as it cut through blue water

         Em           Dm        G              C     (*)
And been gripped by a fever you just can't con-trol

      C             Em           F            C
Oh to throw off the shackles and fly with the seagulls

   Em                Dm              C           G     (*)
To where green waves tumble before a driving sea wind

      C          Em           F             C
Or to lie on the decking on a warm summer's evening

          Em           Dm          C         G       C
Watch the red sun fall burning, be-neath the earth's rim


CHORUS:

    C        Em            F            G
But to every sailor, comes time to drop anchor

C           Em         F              G
Haul in the sails, and make the lines fast

    C          G             F          G
You deep water dreamer, your journey is over

       C           G          F     *
You're safe in the harbour at last

       C           G          F     *
You're safe in the harbour at last


NOTES:
- Commemorates Stan Roger's tragic death in 1983

SAFE IN THE HARBOUR (page 2)


C            Em           F             C
Some men are sailors, but most are just dreamers
     G           Dm           C              G
Held fast by the anchors they forge in their minds
            C                   Em         F         C
Who in ther hearts know they'll never sail over deep water
   Em           Dm                 G                C      (*)
To search for a treasure they're a-fraid they won't find
   C            Em             F              C
So in sheltered harbours, they cling to their anchors
Em              Dm          C               G      (*)
Bank down their boilers and shut down their steam
    C            Em            F                C
And wait for the sailors to re-turn with bright treasures
          Em           Dm         C       G     C
That will fan the dull embers and fire up their dreams

CHORUS:

    C        Em            F            G
But to every sailor, comes time to drop anchor
C           Em         F              G
Haul in the sails, and make the lines fast
    C          G             F          G
You deep water dreamer, your journey is over
       C           G          F     *
You're safe in the harbour at last
       C           G          F     *
You're safe in the harbour at last


    C            Em           F            C
And some men are schemers who laugh at the dreamers
         G             Dm          C          G
Take the gold from the sailors and turn it to dross
        C        Em              F           C
They're men in a prison, they're men without vision
      Em       Dm      G          C     (*)
Whose only hor-izon is profit and loss
        C                 Em        F               C
So when storm clouds come sailing a-cross your blue ocean
     Em           Dm           C                G      (*)
Hold fast to your dreaming for all that your're worth
       C               Em                   F         C
For as long as there's dreamers, there will always be sailors
         Em                Dm                 C       G  C
Bringing back their bright treasures from the corners of earth
