Thread title is pretty self-explanatory. I had the full lyrics for this at one time; damned if I can find them now. Help!

chorus:
Oh, sometimes I wish I was a sailor
Drifting along on the seven seas.
Just to be a kind of magic tailor
And weave the dreams that belong to you and me

Jeremiah, I can't find the lyrics, sorry. If it will help you or anyone else, the complete title of the song is

Take Me Back (To the Good Kind of Livin').

I checked GEST and it seems not to be there, and I found nowt but dribs on Google.

When in doubt, go to the source! Or as close as you can get . . .

Got this from Donny Wood (bassist for John Prince)


Take Me Back
Rex Roberts & John Prince (1994)


Take me back to the good kind of livin'
Where life was shared in the joy of givin'
Where life was easy & passed by slowly; dreams came true & the Sabbath was holy
And time was meant to simply drift a-way.

chorus:        Oh, some-times I think I'd like to be a sail-or
Drifting a-long on the seven seas.
Just to be a kind of magic tail-or
And weave the dreams that be-long to you and me

Let me run through the fields of clover
Be-fore they're gone and all covered over
And let me find the place I long for, & the love I'd sing a song for
And give me time to lay back down and dream.

chorus:        Oh, some-times I think I'd like to be a sail-or
Drifting a-long on the seven seas.
Just to be a kind of magic tail-or
And weave the dreams that be-long to you and me
And weave the dreams that be-long to you and me
And weave the dreams that be-long to you and me

I don't know if this thread is still active but are there any tabs or guitar chords listed for any of the songs on the Take Me Back album including this song. I love every song on the album and it would be incredible to play these songs when relaxing at the fire or in the backyard.

Not sure how accurate but sounds good to me..these are my own and feel free to correct. This would be Capo 2 as the original is in A chord. Beautiful song.
