Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
C | Dm | Em | Dm | C | G

Verse 1:
C    G/B      Am  Am/G
I'm sailing away,
F                             G
  Set an open course for the virgin sea
       C     G/B        Am  Am/G
'Cause I've got to be free,
F                                G
  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  G               Am Am/G
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try,
F     G    C ->
  To carry on

[Instrumental] = [Intro]

Verse 2:
C  G/B         Am  Am/G
I look to the sea,
F                                    G
  Reflections in the waves spark my memory
 C    G/B         Am  Am/G
Some happy, some sad,
F                                         G
  I think of childhood friends, and the dreams we had

Am                          G
  We lived happily forever,   so the story goes
Am                          G
  But somehow we missed out   on the pot of gold
            C  G            Am Am/G
But we'll try best that we can
F     G    C ->
  To carry on

Instrumental:
C | F | G | F  - x2

Pre-chorus:
   C           F
a gathering of angels,
   G               F
Appeared above my head
      C               F
They sang to me this song of hope,
      G                F
And this is what they said, they said

Chorus: (x2)
 C               F
Come sail away, come sail away,
      G              F
Come sail away with me, lads
 C               F
Come sail away, come sail away,
      G              F
Come sail away with me

Instrumental:
C | F | G | F  - x3

Pre-chorus:
    C                    F
I thought that they were angels,
     G              F
But much to my surprise
     C                    F
We climbed aboard their starship
     G               F
And headed for the skies

[Chorus] (x5)
