Safe In the Harbour v1  Eric Bogle



INTRO: G, C, G, C, F, C, G, C, C
    Have you [C]stood by the [Em]ocean, on a [F]diamond-hard [C]morning
  And [G]felt the hor-[Dm]izon stir [C]deep in your [G]soul
  Watched the [C]wake of a [Em]steamer as it [F]cut through blue [C]water
Em Dm G C (*)
And been gripped by a fever you just can't con-trol
  Oh to [C]throw off the [Em]shackles and [F]fly with the [C]seagulls
Em Dm C G (*)
To where green waves tumble before a driving sea wind
  Or to [C]lie on the [Em]decking on a [F]warm summer's [C]evening
  Watch the [Em]red sun fall [Dm]burning, be-[C]neath the [G]earth's [C]rim
CHORUS:
  But [C]to every [Em]sailor, comes [F]time to drop [G]anchor
  [C]Haul in the [Em]sails, and [F]make the lines [G]fast
  You [C]deep water [G]dreamer, your [F]journey is [G]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)
    [C]Some men are [Em]sailors, but [F]most are just [C]dreamers
Held [G]fast by the [Dm]anchors they [C]forge in their [G]minds
Who in ther [C]hearts know they'll [Em]never sail [F]over deep [C]water
Em Dm G C (*)
To search for a treasure they're a-fraid they won't find
So [C]in sheltered [Em]harbours, they [F]cling to their [C]anchors
Em Dm C G (*)
Bank down their boilers and shut down their steam
And [C]wait for the [Em]sailors to re-[F]turn with bright [C]treasures
That will [Em]fan the dull [Dm]embers and [C]fire up [G]their [C]dreams
CHORUS:
  But [C]to every [Em]sailor, comes [F]time to drop [G]anchor
[C]Haul in the [Em]sails, and [F]make the lines [G]fast
You [C]deep water [G]dreamer, your [F]journey is [G]over
C G F *
You're safe in the harbour at last
C G F *
You're safe in the harbour at last
    And [C]some men are [Em]schemers who [F]laugh at the [C]dreamers
Take the [G]gold from the [Dm]sailors and [C]turn it to [G]dross
They're [C]men in a [Em]prison, they're [F]men without [C]vision
Em Dm G C (*)
Whose only hor-izon is profit and loss
So when [C]storm clouds come [Em]sailing a-[F]cross your blue [C]ocean
Em Dm C G (*)
Hold fast to your dreaming for all that your're worth
For as [C]long as there's [Em]dreamers, there will [F]always be [C]sailors
Bringing [Em]back their bright [Dm]treasures from the [C]corners [G]of [C]earth
ENDING: CHORUS, FOLLOWED BY A "C" CHORD
