Your Tall Ship

C             G    Am                 G
Far, so far away, surely you remember

C                G
log book pages frayed

      Am                        G
that fanned the flames of long ago -

  C              G
guttered in the grate: 

 Am         
shadows in the embers...

 G     C    G        C
look away, look for home.



Voices ...
    G    C     G        C
...sail away, sail for home,

 G     C    G        C
look away, look for home.


 C            Em      C       Em     C     Em
Land-locked lovers, landlub friends, in procession:

 C             F      G      C
all rites of passage have an end,

 C          C
look away, sail away,

C     F   C(no 5th)        C
sail your tall       ship home.


We are...
...look for home.

Look away in the Roaring Forties...
(musically i haven't worked out this passage.  I think it might just be 
C and G.)

 C            Em     C         Em
Land-locked lovers, littoral friends,

C       Em     C     Em
the succession never ends...

     C        Em     C        Em
the spirit's willing to carry on;

C               F      G       C
all rites of passage make us strong.


C      C
Sail away,

C      C
sail away,

C     F   C(no 5th)       C
Sail your tall      ship home.
