Come Sail Away

Words and Music by Dennis DeYoung
Bassist:  Chuck Panozzo
>From the album "The Grand Illusion" (A&M)
Transcribed by Brian Angell (DCFan427@aol.com)

This transcription is pretty close to the recording.  Overall, it follows the 
chords and is accurate enough for my own needs.  Enjoy!
