Song: Sailboats
Artist: Sky Sailing
Album: An Airplane Carried Me To Bed
Tabbed by: Elijah


C                              G
Sailboats wish that they were stars,
Floating softly in the sky
Among our dreams that bid goodbye

C                         G
Moving through transparent space, 
Drifting through the stratosphere
  F                   G
And onward 'till they disappear

C                          G
These continents from overhead
Look like tiny paper shapes
Intricately set in place

C                      G
Below the misty mountain clouds
Theres a lovely silver bay
      F              G         C
Where sunset sailors often hideaway

F      C            G
Scuba diver in the lock,
F         C             G 
Speedboat driver on the dock
F          C            G           Am            
Sailplane pilot in the blue take me up there with you
F                  C               Am      G
The world looks brighter from this high altitude

F        C                  G
I was walking through the trees (Sailboats wish they were stars)
F            C                 G
And I was swimming through the sea (Cause they don't know who they are)
F       C                  G
I was falling through the air
         Am            F
When it hit me right there...
F           C          Am       G
My eyes are tired; I don't even care

C G Am F
C G Am F G

C                         G
An airplane carried me to bed, 
Where i slept above the coast 
And dreamt I had become a ghost

C                          G
I sailed above the frozen peaks,
Deep in cold cathedral caves
  F                  G               C
Across the hills and far beyond the waves

F         C          G
Take the car on the lawn
F         C         G   
Fly the jet to the sun
F                   C
And bring the spacecraft
    G                 Am             F
in soon while I play chess with the moon
F              C                  Am        G 
I feel like sleeping through this cold afternoon

F        C G                            
Once in 1964 (Sailboats wish they were stars)
F           C           G
An actress ran on the shore (Cause they don't know who they are)
F                   C        G
And though you'll never return,
I love you Audrey Hepburn
F           C            Am            G    
Sometimes I can see your face in the crowd

F           C             G
There are sailboats throughout this brilliant sky
F           C             G
But you cannot pick them out if you can't fly
F              C             G
I'm glad the Earth doesn't care
If I go up there
F        C           Am              G            C
If you want to just ask me and I'll take you along..
