Come Sail Away
Written by Dennis DeYoung
Lead Vocals by Dennis DeYoung


  Intro -   C - Dm - Em - Dm - C - G


    C     Bm     Am   G F                            G
    I'm sailing away,    set an open course for the virgin sea
    C     Bm         Am   G F                              G
    I've got to be free,    free to face the life that's ahead of me
   Am                          G
    On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard
   Am                             G
    We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
             C      Bm           Am  G F         G  C Dm  Em  Dm  C  G
    And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try    to carry on


    C   Bm         Am  G F                                   G
    I look to the sea,   reflections in the waves spark my memory
     C     Bm         Am  G  F
    Some happy, some sad
                                           G
    I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
   Am                       G
    We live happily forever, so the story goes
   Am                        G
    But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
         C         Bm          Am G F         G  C Dm  Em  Dm  C  G
    But we'll try best that we can,  to carry on


         ( Im still not sure about this part.
         Looks like variations of C and G. Corrections welcome. )

        C                   G
    A gathering of angels appeared above my head
          C                                 G
    They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
               C
    They said come sail away, come sail away
          G
    Come sail away with me .. lad
     C
    Come sail away, come sail away
                        Ab
    Come sail away with me


     (This break uses Ab most of the way i think)


         C                            G
    I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
            C                                G
    They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
             C
    Singing come sail away, come sail away
          G
    Come away with me
     C
    Come sail away, come sail away
          G             Ab
    Come sail away with me

After the first two verses, you don't just play C and G - You play it like this:
C F G
Come
sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!
-will.man26@yahoo.com P.S.:
Everything
else is perfect!

Two corrections based on playing this on keyboard:

* Bm should probably Em/B (chord progression to get descending bass line)
* As @WillieMan mentioned, chorus does do C F G F, but with bass doing C, so it's C F/C and G with C (I forgot what guitar chord this'd be... G11?)
