Brilliant piece of writing from Archie, one of my all time favourites.

Now there is someone who understands women.

That's great thanks mate. Lyrics are transcribed from the song itself.

WINDWARD AWAY
(Archie Fisher)

Love will come and love will go
As the seas roll on forever
And lost love has the everlasting flow
Of a neverending river
And it's not an easy reckoning
But sometimes I have the notion
That womenkind, in heart and mind
Sails on a restless ocean

For a tallship came from windward away
On a gray Atlantic morning
She showed no lights or colours
In the hour before the dawning
On a full-rigged run to the rising sun
She reached our starboard quarter
And I'll ne'r forget the name she wore
She was called the Neptune's Daughter

Her sails were white as ivory
And her rigging sang like harp strings
Her spars were black as ebony
And her wheels spun free of lashings
Her cloak of gray was the spindrift spray
As she split the waves asunder
I can see her now as she crossed our bow
While we gazed in silent wonder

Her course was set by destiny
And no helmsman's hand could change her
We hailed her and we signalled
"You are standing into danger"
But she left us free on the westerly
And I watched her pale sails sinking
And if only I was upon her deck
Was all that I was thinking

Love will come and love will go
As the years roll on forever
And lost love has the everlasting flow
Of a neverending river
And it's not an easy reckoning
But sometimes I have the notion
That womenkind, in her heart and mind
Is a tall ship on the ocean

If you take the time and make the effort to post the lyrics, I will post the chords.

I don't see the lyrics posted online anywhere otherwise I would copy and paste.

Archie sings this in the key of B flat. I am not enough of an expert in open tunings to know whether he plays in DADGAD with a capo on the first fret , or whether he uses some other alternate tuning.

If you post the lyrics, I will post the chords as if the song were in the key of G in standard tuning ... to get to B flat, as I am sure you know, you just put the capo on the third fret, and play the same chords.

Lovely song that I've been trying, struggling and failing to work out! Any pointers on the chords would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Malky
