Youtube video second song Single Handed Sailor

Intro: D-A7-D-A7

 

(D)I could have (A7)stayed in the (D)harbour

(G)Safe from the (D)storm and the (A)gale(A7)
(Bm)Letting the (D)sands run (A)through my (D)hands

(G)Watching as (Em)others set (A)sail(A7)


But I (D)would have (A7)spent time (D)counting

The (G)things I'd (D)never (A)known(A7)
(Bm)Passions laid (D)waste, (A)dreams mis(D)placed,

The (G)seeds of de(Em)sire un(A)sown(A7)

 

Chorus:
I'm a (D)single handed (A)sailor(A7)
(Bm)Lost, a(D)drift and a(A)lone(A7)
(D)Hoping to (G)ride the (Em)wind and the (D)tide
(Bm)Hoping to find (A7)my way (G)home

 

Em-A7

 

The (D)sea is (A7)ever (D)changing

Like the (G)beat of a (D)restless (A)heart(A7)
(Bm)Out there I (D)find (A)some peace of (D)mind

To (G)keep me from (Em)falling a(A)part(A7)


(D)When the (A7)voyage was (D)ended

I'd (G)stand once a(D)gain on the (A)shore(A7)
I'd (Bm)take time to (D)smile and (A)rest for a (D)while

Be(G)fore setting (Em)sail once (A)more(A7)

 

Chorus

Em-A7

 

You (D)know I (A7)must roam the (D)ocean,

The (G)wanderlust still (A)burns(A7)
(Bm)'Neath empty (D)skies I'd re(A)member the (D)ties

That (G)bind and I will (Em)always re(A)turn(A7)

 

Chorus

A7

Chorus

A7-D
