Capo: 6th Fret

[Chorus]

          G                 D
I see the light, across the bay
          G                 C
I see the light, not far away
             G           D
And I hear music, all around
              Am                D
I’m getting close, to Portland Town
           G                  D
So Mother won’t you, make my bed
           G                  C
I see the light, of Portland Head
           G                 D
I see the light, I’m comin’ round
Em             C   D             G
  I’m comin’ home,  to Portland Town


[Verse 1]

D           G  C    D       G    G7
Some years ago,  out on my  own
        C       D             G
I set a course,  for parts unknown
          Am    D                   Em
Leavin’ behind, both friend and foe
            C    G                   Am
Needin’ to find,   what I’ve come to know
D                 G  C        D   G
As I watched the is… lands, fade away
    G7      C
And bid farewell, to Casco Bay
                  G                    D
Though it’s been years, and years since  then
Em            C       G          Am
 My heart has brought   me home again


[Chorus]
                   
              G                 D
And I see the light, across the bay
          G                 C
I see the light, not far away
             G           D
And I hear music, all around
              Am                D
I’m getting close, to Portland Town
           G                  D
So Mother won’t you, make my bed
           G                  C
I see the light, of Portland Head
           G                 D
I see the light, I’m comin’ round
Em             C   D             G
  I’m comin’ home,  to Portland Town


[Verse 2]

D           G  C    D       G    G7
Of all the places, I could go
        C       D             G
She’s still the fairest, port I know
          Am    D                   Em
She works the sea, and tills the farms
            C    G                   Am
And holds her children, in her arms
D                 G  C        D   G
No place to know, a prouder past
     G7        C
Here comes the future, full at last
                  G                    D
Here comes that beacon, ‘cross the sky
Em            C       G          Am
And when I hold, my head up high…


[Chorus]

          G                 D
I see the light, across the bay
          G                 C
I see the light, not far away
             G           D
And I hear music, all around
              Am                D
I’m getting close, to Portland Town
           G                  D
So Mother won’t you, make my bed
           G                  C
I see the light, of Portland Head
           G                 D
I see the light, I’m comin’ round
Em             C   D             G
  I’m comin’ home,  to Portland Town
