                Sail Away - Randy Newman
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Randy Newman
Sail Away (1972)
(Newman)

From: "Sail Away"

Hardly a guitar song, but it works, I think.
It's difficult to reproduce the intro because of all the suspended notes. 
I left them out and just put the straight chords here. I'm not sure about 
the "A/E" chord, however. It seems to work, but I'd be thankful for 
suggestions!

Listen to my demo recording, so you know what the tab sounds like:
