James Keelaghan - Refugee


CAPO: 5th Fret



INTRO: C   F   C   F

       C
I will write you one last time
       
You will be here in the morning
   
I imagine that you're sleeping
       F              G
On the North Atlantic swell
          C
There's a wind in off the sea

Enough to keep me waking
 F
Enough to make me think
        G               
We will say no more farewells


        C
All the words that pass between us

A line of pale blue letters

Stretching from the Sambro lighthouse
       F                  G
To the waves around Lands End
           C
Now you're following that line

Enveloped by the darkness
       F
You'll find me waiting
G                  C
When you reach its end


CHORUS:
        G
All the ones who ran from war
        F               C
All the wealthy and the wounded
          G 
That have landed on this shore
           F                G
They don't mean a thing to me
         C
All that matters is the one

Who will be with me tomorrow
              G                        C      F    C    F   
It's a lonely heart that loves the refugee


       C
You've left behind your home

I have left behind my family

We have come here to this shore
         F                   G
With the strength to start anew
          C
There's a world here for the taking

A safe and steady harbour
          F
There's a million things to think of
      G                  
But tonight I'll think of you


           C
Well, it's immigrants we are

This land has known no other

There's a million came before us
          F                G
A million more will follow on
   C
An endless wave is washing

On this rocky coastline
        F
Carving features in the landscape
        G              C
Fanning out and moving on


CHORUS:
        G
All the ones who ran from war
        F               C
All the wealthy and the wounded
          G 
That have landed on this shore
           F                G
They don't mean a thing to me
         C
All that matters is the one

Who will be with me tomorrow
              G                        C      F    C    F   
It's a lonely heart that loves the refugee


         C
Tomorrow morning you'll look out

You will see this lovely coastline

From Mitchell Bay to Prospect
        F                G
It will seem like open arms
          C
And those arms will enfold you
        
Sweep you safe into the harbour
  F                              G
Deliver you from loneliness and harm
 

         C
Tomorrow morning I will climb 

Upon the hill above the harbour

I will look out to the East
             F                 G
To where the heaven meets the sea
         C
When the ship has come in sight

I will run down to the dockside
    F                 G             C
And welcome here just one more refugee


CHORUS:
        G
All the ones who ran from war
        F               C
All the wealthy and the wounded
          G 
That have landed on this shore
           F                G
They don't mean a thing to me
         C
All that matters is the one

Who will be with me tomorrow
              G                        C   
It's a lonely heart that loves the refugee
              G                        C      F    C    F   C
It's a lonely heart that loves the refugee
