Safe In the Harbour v1

Eric Bogle



INTRO: G, C, G, C, F, C, G, C, C
 CEmFC
    Have you stood by the ocean, on a diamond-hard morning
 GDmCG
  And felt the hor-izon stir deep in your soul
 CEmFC
  Watched the wake of a steamer as it cut through blue water
Em Dm G C (*)
And been gripped by a fever you just can't con-trol
 CEmFC
  Oh to throw off the shackles and fly with the seagulls
Em Dm C G (*)
To where green waves tumble before a driving sea wind
 CEmFC
  Or to lie on the decking on a warm summer's evening
 EmDmCGC
  Watch the red sun fall burning, be-neath the earth's rim
CHORUS:
 CEmFG
  But to every sailor, comes time to drop anchor
 CEmFG
  Haul in the sails, and make the lines fast
 CGFG
  You deep water dreamer, your journey is over
C G F *
You're safe in the harbour at last
C G F *
You're safe in the harbour at last
NOTES:
- Commemorates Stan Roger's tragic death in 1983

SAFE IN THE HARBOUR (page 2)
 CEmFC
    Some men are sailors, but most are just dreamers
 GDmCG
Held fast by the anchors they forge in their minds
 CEmFC
Who in ther hearts know they'll never sail over deep water
Em Dm G C (*)
To search for a treasure they're a-fraid they won't find
 CEmFC
So in sheltered harbours, they cling to their anchors
Em Dm C G (*)
Bank down their boilers and shut down their steam
 CEmFC
And wait for the sailors to re-turn with bright treasures
 EmDmCGC
That will fan the dull embers and fire up their dreams
CHORUS:
 CEmFG
  But to every sailor, comes time to drop anchor
 CEmFG
 Haul in the sails, and make the lines fast
 CGFG
You deep water dreamer, your journey is over
C G F *
You're safe in the harbour at last
C G F *
You're safe in the harbour at last
 CEmFC
    And some men are schemers who laugh at the dreamers
 GDmCG
Take the gold from the sailors and turn it to dross
 CEmFC
They're men in a prison, they're men without vision
Em Dm G C (*)
Whose only hor-izon is profit and loss
 CEmFC
So when storm clouds come sailing a-cross your blue ocean
Em Dm C G (*)
Hold fast to your dreaming for all that your're worth
 CEmFC
For as long as there's dreamers, there will always be sailors
 EmDmCGC
Bringing back their bright treasures from the corners of earth
