[Intro]

G  C  Em  C  G

[Verse 1]

        G                         C         G
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
                Em          C         D
It's better my darling, I promise you this
     Bm          C                        Am
The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
         G                    C         Em      D/F#
Will you wait for me darling, I need to know


[Verse 2]

           G                   C         G
Well, you know I'm a sailor, tomorrow we sail
                   Em           C        D
It's a hard way of living, but I know it well
    Bm        C                    Am
And if I surrender my life to the sea
        G                   C            Em
You can marry another, it's alright with me


[Pre-Chorus]

          C        G            D            Em
Though we won't be together again 'til the spring
       C                        D
Just imagine the treasures I'll bring


[Chorus]

      G                           C          G
Come lay with me, stay with me, soon I'll be gone
              Em         C          D
But I will remember you all winter long
    Bm        C                     Am
And when I return to the one that I miss
        G                       C           Em
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
    C           G...
The sweeter the kiss


[Interlude]

...C  G  Em  C  D  Bm  C  Am  G  C  Em


[Pre-Chorus]

           C          G               D          Em
When the mornings are warm and the valleys are green
          C                       D
I'll come back from wherever I've been


[Verse 3]

          G                      C          G
Oh, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
                Em         C          D
It's better my darling, I promise you this
    Bm            C                        Am
But next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
         G                   C       Em
We will give up the ocean forever, I know
   C      G
Forever I know.

Great work with that! I wonder, do you by chance know what the small accordion in the recording is called?

I had the exact same question! I found the Youtube video for the song, and it looks like he is playing a concertina. That led to me buying one.. cool instrument!

Brilliant work with this.

On Anna's Live in Stockholm (2016) album the capo is on the 2nd Fret.
