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
    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
    They said come sail away, come sail away
    Come sail away with me .. lad
    Come sail away, come sail away
    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
    Singing come sail away, come sail away
    Come away with me
    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:
sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me!
-will.man26@yahoo.com P.S.:
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?)
