[Intro]
   Am    G        F        G
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

   Am    G       F/C   G/B G    Am
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 1]
Am                   G                   F
    He watched the silver boats in the sunset,
F  Em  Dm               G                F
^   ^  ^   Riding into port on gentle breezes,
F  Em  Dm             Dm/C         Bm7-5                 E
^   ^  ^   Heard the seagull's cry   ...echo 'round the bay,
   E7     Am             G                F
As he sat in his chair,     by the open window!


[Verse 2]
F   G  Am                       G                 F
^   ^   ^   Ships had been his life from ten to eighty,
F   G  Am                G                  F
^   ^   ^   And now the time had come for resting,
F   Em  Dm                Dm/C
^   ^   ^   His sons, and their sons too,
    Bm7-5       E               E7
Had taken over all that needed doing,
G                      F
   A time for remi - niscing!


[Chorus]
F  G Am               Asus4
^  ^  ^   Good - bye, Bonnie Charlie-----,
                   ^     ^      ^   ^  ^
Em7                   Em7  D   Am
     Good boat, you served me well,
                       ^    ^   ^
Am              Asus4
   Good - bye, untamed ocean-----------,
^          ^      ^     ^     ^    ^
Em7                 Em7  D    Am
     I'll soon be sett - ing sail,
                    ^     ^    ^
   Em7                  Em7   D    Am
To ride the tide of e - ter - ni - ty!
                         ^    ^    ^

[Verse 3]
Am          G                  F
   A little bay lit - up by moonlight,
G  Am                    G             F
        Like something from a fairy - tale,
F   Em  Dm              Dm/C
^   ^    ^    And, never in his life,
    Bm7-5            E     E7      Am
Had he seen such a lovely night as this,
G            F
    Heaven kissed!


[Chorus]
F  G Am               Asus4
^  ^  ^   Good - bye, Bonnie Charlie-----,
                   ^     ^      ^   ^  ^
Em7                   Em7  D   Am
     Good boat, you served me well,
                       ^    ^   ^
Am              Asus4
   Good - bye, untamed ocean-----------,
^          ^      ^     ^     ^    ^
Em7                 Em7  D    Am
     I'll soon be sett - ing sail,
                    ^     ^    ^
   Em7                  Em7   D    Am
To ride the tide of e - ter - ni - ty!
                         ^    ^    ^

[Verse 4]
Am               G                F
    And as the silver boats at sunrise,
G  Am               G                F
       Rode out of port on gentle breezes,
F Em Dm                Dm/C       Bm7-5                   E
^  ^ ^  The seagull's farewell cry  ...echoed 'round the bay,
 E7       Am          G                F       F   G   Am
Past the empty chair,    by the open window!   ^   ^   ^
