Bm                 Bm9
An old man by a seashore

Gm7             G6
At the end of day

A            G
Gazes the horizon

A                     Bm
With seawinds in his face

Bm                Bm9
Tempest-tossed island

G
Seasons all the same

A              G
Anchorage unpainted

A                     Bm
And a ship without a name
3x Bm


Bm             Bm9            Gm7            G6
Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard

A                 G       A
He lightens the beacon, light

                Bm
at the end of world

Bm          Bm9           Gm7              G6
Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts

      A               G       A           Bm
The ones on their travels homeward from afar

Bm        G   D   A   Bm
This is long-for got-ten

G             D         Em-Bm
Light at the end of the world

G     D   A  Bm
Hori-zon cry-un

G                    D         Em
The tears he left behind long ago

2x intro

Bm                 Bm9
The albatross is flying

Gm7             G6
Making him daydream

A                    G
The time before he became

A                     Bm
One of the world's unseen

Bm                Bm9
Princess in the tower

Gm7                G6
Children in the fields

A                 G
Life gave him it all:

A                   Bm
An island of the universe

Bm                Bm9
Now his love's a memory

Gm7              G6
A ghost in the fog

A                  G
He sets the sails one last time

           A             Bm
Saying farewell to the world

Bm              Bm9
Anchor to the water

Gm7           G6
Seabed far below

A                    G
Grass still in his feet

       A                 Bm
And a smile beneath his brow

Bm            G   D   A   Bm
This is for long-for got-ten

G             D         Em-Bm
Light at the end of the world

G     D   A  Bm
Hori-zon cry-un

G                    D            Em
The tears he left behind so long ago

I'm sorry there is no way an A major chord can be in this song.
