                D                A7                D                                        D7                G>Em
There' a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour, Tomorrow for old England she sails,
                                                        G>Em                                        A7
far away from your land of endless sunshine to my land full of rainy skies and gales;
           D                A7                D                                                D7                                G>Em
and I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow, though my heart is full of tears at this farewell;

                        Em7   A7    F#m7   Bm7        Em7                        A7
        Ch         For you are beautiful, and I have loved you dearly
                                           Em7                A7                                D
                        more dearly than the spoken word can tell;   
                        Em7   A7    F#m7   Bm7        Em7                        A7
                         And you are beautiful, and I have loved you dearly
                                           Em7                A7                                D
                        more dearly than the spoken word can tell;   

                                D                A7                      D                                                D7                     G>Em
V.2.I heard there's a wicked war a-blazing, and the taste of war I know so very well,
                                                            G>Em                                                A7
Even now I see the foreign flag a-raising, their guns on fire as we sail into hell;
           D                                       A7                        D                                        D7                G>Em
I have no fear of death it brings no sorrow, but how bitter will be this. last farewell

                                        D        A7                    D                                                D7                G>Em
Though death and darkness gather all about me, and my ship be torn apart upon the sea,
I shall smell again the fragrance of these Islands,and the heaving waves that brough me
once to thee;
                            D                               A7                    D                                                            D7
should I return safe home again to England, I shall watch the English mist roll through
the dell; G>Em
