[Verse]

        D                             Em
In the year of thirty nine assembled here the volunteers
        C              G         D
In the days when the lands were few
         Em                       C
And the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
     Dsus4    D         G
The sweetest sign ever seen.

          D                           Ebdim                       
And the night followed day, and the story tellers say
      Em                Am               
The score brave souls inside
     G                             D
For so many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
 C            Em     C    D      C       G      D
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried


[Chorus]

           G                          C
Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
           G              D
Don't you hear me calling you
            G      B7      Em
Write your letters in the sand
 G       C     G         Am
For the day I take your hand
        G          D                G
In the land that our grandchildren knew

[Bridge]

Eb Cm A C Gbm C Am E Bb Eb Bb Csus4 F G

[Verse]

        D                          Em
In the year of thirty nine came a ship came from the blue
        C             G         D
The volunteers came home that day
         Em                       C
And they bring good news from a world so newly born
           Dsus4        D        G
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

          D                           Ebdim       
Now the earth is old and grey, little darling we'll away
        Em              Am  
But my love this cannot be
        G                            D
For so many years have gone now I'm older but a year
      C      Em     C    D          C       G      D
Your mother's eyes from your eyes - cry to me


[Chorus]

           G                          C
Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
           G              D
Don't you hear me calling you
            G      B7      Em
Write your letters in the sand
 G       C     G         Am
For the day I take your hand
        G          D                G
In the land that our grandchildren knew

           G                          C
Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
           G              D
Don't you hear me calling you
            G      B7      Em
All your letters in the sand
 G       C        G            Am
Can not heal me like your your hand
        Em          D           G
For my life, still ahead, pity me

Looks like the best version from what I could find.

Thank you, excellent version! Though there´s one small failure. The last chorus goes "All the letters in the sand.." instead of "write your letters".
Freaks me out every time
