(Finger pick the first 2 verses and then strum the chords)

[Verse 1]
       G            Em           C               G
I am sailing, I am sailing home again 'cross the sea.
       A           Em             Am              G      D
I am sailing stormy waters, to be near you, to be free.


[Verse 2]
       G           Em           C               G
I am flying, I am flying like a bird 'cross the sky.
       A            Em                 Am              G      D
I am flying passing high clouds, to be near you, to be free.


[Verse 3]
       G                 Em                C              G
Can you hear me, can you hear me, thru the dark night far away?
       A           Em            Am                G      D
I am dying, forever trying to be with you; who can say?


[Verse 4]
       G                Em                 C               G
Can you hear me, can you hear me, thru the dark night far away?
       A            Em           Am                G      D
I am dying, forever trying to be with you; who can say?

[Chorus]
       G               Em           C                G
We are sailing, we are sailing home again 'cross the sea.
       A              Em            Am              G
We are sailing stormy waters, to be near you, to be free.
D             Am             G
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free.
D             Am             G
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free.

Change A-major to A-minor and it will be allright!

I haven't checked in on this in a while but...I think the A major is right. It's a subtle difference that is one of the things that makes the tune great. The change from major to minor is nice and important. Cheers!
