The Last Farewell - Roger Whittaker (CAPO 1)

[Intro]
D F D Cadd9 D        

[Verse 1]
          D                    A7           D     
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour
                 D7          G    
tomorrow for old England she sails
     Em7                                   
far away from your land of endless sunshine
                                   A     A7
to my land full of rainy skies and gales 
    D          A7                 D     
and I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
                           D7                G   
though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

[Chorus]
Em    A      D       Bm     Em               A7    
  For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
     Em7             A7               D  
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Em    A      D      Bm      Em               A7    
  for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
     Em              A7              D    C  D  C  D
more dearly than the spoken word can tell              

[Verse 2]
D                 C            D         C
I heard there's a wicked war a blazing   
        D                           G   
and the taste of war I know so very well
           Em7                            
Even now I see that foreign flag a raising
                                      A   A7
their guns on fire as we sailed into hell 
    D             A                  D     
I have no fear of death it brings no sorrow
                    D7           G       
but how bitter will be this last farewell

[Chorus]
Em    A      D       Bm     Em               A7    
  For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
     Em              A7              D   
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Em    A      D      Bm      Em               A7    
  for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
     Em              A7              D    C  D  C  D
more dearly than the spoken word can tell              

[Verse 3]
       D                   A7        D       
Though death and darkness gather all about me
                                    G 
and my ship be torn apart upon the sea
        Em7                                       
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
                                             A    A7
in the heaving waves that brought me once to thee 
           D        A7                 D      
and should I return safe home again to England
                          D7                    G   
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale

[Chorus]
Em    A      D       Bm     Em               A7    
  For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
     Em              A7              D   
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Em    A      D      Bm      Em               A7    
  for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
     Em              A               D    F  D  Cadd9  D
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
