[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           Bm7b5                 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                Bm7b5       E               E7
^   ^   ^   His sons, and their sons too, had taken over all that needed doing,
G                      F
   A time for remi - niscing!


[Chorus]
F   G  Am               Asus4                  Em7                 Em7  D  Am
^   ^   ^   Good - bye, Bonnie Charlie-------,    good boat, you served me well,
                    ^      ^      ^    ^   ^                        ^   ^   ^
Am              Asus4                    Em7              Em7    D    Am
   Good - bye, untamed ocean-----------,     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       G  Am                 G              F
   A little bay lit - up by moonlight,       like something from a fairy - tale,
F  Em  Dm            Dm/C           Bm7b5             E     E7      Am
^   ^   ^  And never in his life had he seen such a lovely night as this,
G            F
    Heaven kissed!

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

    And as the silver boats at sunrise,      rode out of port on gentle breezes,
F   Em  Dm                  Dm/C         Bm7b5                   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!   ^   ^   ^
