Sailing


(by Gavin Sutherland, 1972)

Capo on 5ft fret (personal preference)


     C x2     C/B.5 Am x2.5
I am sailing, I am  sailing,

      F x2.5          C x2.5
home again `cross the sea.

     Dm x2.5         Am x2.5
I am sailing, stormy waters,

      G x2.5          C x2
to be near you, to be free.


     C x2    C/B.5 Am x2.5
I am flying, I am  flying,

       F x2.5          C x2.5
like a bird `cross the sky.

     Dm x2.5         Am x2.5
I am flying, passing high clouds,

      G x2.5          C x2
to be with you, to be free.


        C x2     C/B.5   Am x2.5
Can you hear me, can you hear me

          F x2.5          C x2.5
thro` the dark night, far away,

     Dm x2.5        Am x2.5
I am dying, forever crying,

      G x2.5            C x2
to be with you, who can say.


[sing the verse above once more]


       C x2     C/B.5  Am x2.5
We are sailing, we are sailing,

      F x2.5          C x2.5
home again `cross the sea.

       Dm x2.5        Am x2.5
We are sailing stormy waters,

      G x2.5          C x2
to be near you, to be free.


   C           G x2.5          C x2
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free.

   C           G x2.5          C x2
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free,

   C
Oh Lord.
