intro.

E5 E / / |A6 / / / |E5 E / / |A6 / / / |

1.

E / / / |A6 / / / A-cross the bay a lady waits to hold me tight, |E / / / |A6 / / / And my boat and I are read to set sail, |E / / / |A6 / / / If the weather keeps on holdin' and the wind is right, |E / / / |B7 / / I'll be wrapped up in my sweet one's arms to-night.

chorus:

/ |E / / / |A6 / / / | And we will sail a-way - on the wings of love in-to the night, E / / / |A6 / / / - Cast out our fortunes on the sea, |E / / / |A6 / / / We'll go to sleep to-gether, with the rockin' of the water, |E / / / |B7 / / / |E And dream of how our life will someday be - when she sails a-way with me.

bridge:

... E / / |A6 / / / |E / / / A6 / / / |

2.

As I skip across the waves my sails are high and full, My mind is on the one I wait to see, And I dream about an island somewhere in my mind, Where someday I will take her off with me.

chorus:

2.

|F / / / |Bb6 / / / Then a smile comes u-pon me as I look a-cross the bow, |F / / / |A6 / / / I see the lady waiting on the side, |F / / / |Bb6 / / But she will wait no more as I head to-wards the shore, / |F / / / |C7 / / 'cause tonight I'm gonna take her for a ride.
