C/G G F/C x2

   Am          Em         F/C       C/G
As ships sail away I grow tired and gray
     Am         Em         F/C
this story has always been true
           Am       Em        F/C   C/G
and it’s a long way down each time around
     Am            Em        F/C
it’s something you never get used to

       Am          Em           F/C     C/G
Well I fell like a fool for the one and only
       Am           Em           F/C
I made peace with a haunting old friend
           Am          Em           F/C    C/G
and as the first drops fell our last words sailed
     Am          Em           F/C
they sit with me still in the sand

Em/G Dm/F x4

Am    Em          F/C       C/G
Forty days, boys, and forty nights
    Am              Em            F/C
the ship tossed and turned two by two
         Am            Em          F/C         C/G
they say heaven poured down on our poor little heads
        Am      Em   F/C
and the world began anew
Am     Em       F/C      C/G        Am
Golden shores, I want no more in my time
Em     F/C      
than time to tell
Am      Em              F/C             C/G
high on the mountain is each mark shown
       Am      Em             F/C
as the wind is blown from our sails

Em/G Dm/F x4
