INTRO:  1,  57,  1,  57,  1

          *                    57           1         *
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour
   *              17          4      *
To-morrow for old England she sails
      *             *               *          *
Far a-way from your land of endless sunshine
      2m           *               57      *
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
    1             57                 1       *
And I shall be on board that ship to-morrow
          *                17                 4      *
Though my heart is full of tears at this fare-well


CHORUS:

2m     5       1      6m      2m               57
.. For you are beauti-ful and I have loved you dearly
     2m              57              1      *
More dearly than the spoken word can tell 
2m     5       1      6m      2m               57
.. For you are beauti-ful and I have loved you dearly
     2m              57              1      *
More dearly than the spoken word can tell 


I heard there's a wicked war a-blazing
And the taste of war I know so very well
Even now I see that foreign flag a-raising
Their guns on fire as we sailed into hell
I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow
But how bitter will be this last farewell


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
In the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
And should I return safe home again to England
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale
