Into The Mystic  Van Morrison


     [C]We were born before the wind
     [C]Also younger than the sun
     [G]'Ere the bonny boat was won
     [G]As we sailed into the [C]mystic
(verse 2)
     [C]Hark, now, hear the sailor's cry
     [C]Smell the sea and feel the sky
     [G]Let your soul and spirit fly
     [G]Into the my[C]stic.

     [Em]When that foghorn[F] blows,
     I will be[C] comin' home, Mmm hmm hm
     [Em]When that foghorn[F] blows,
     I wanna[G] hear it, I don't have to fear it

     And [C]I  wanna rock you gypsy soul
     [C]Just like way back in the days of old
     [G]And magnificently we will float
     [G]Into the my[C]stic

(SAX SOLO) C ... G ... C

     [Em]When that[F] foghorn blows,
     [C]you know I will be comin' home
     [Em]And when that [F]foghorn whistle blows, [G]
     [G]I've gotta hear it, I don't have to fear it

(ending chorus)
     [C]And I wanna rock your gypsy soul
     [C]Just like way back in the days of old
     [G]And together we will float
     [G]Into the mys[C]tic ............... Come on girl!

(SAX SOLO) C ... G ... C

        ......[C].. Too late to stop now-o-[G]ow!...... ( E[C]ND )

Capo 3 (making it Eb). That's the key Van sings it.

You could try whistling. I do that on many song when playing solo acoustic.

For beginners, of which I am one, I found the strum pattern 1 2& &4& works well for this song.
