Took The Wind From Sails-crd  George Strait

Intro: D A
[D]Outer banks of North Carolina
Lies a sleepy harbor town
Generations of old sailors
Dropped their sails and [G]settled down
[D]Sam he is a young seafarer
Grandson of a schooner man
Catherine is a sail maker’s daughter
Today he’s gonna [G]take her hand
Chorus:
[Bm]Calm [G]waters
[Bm]Wish them [G]well
His ship’s come in
[A]She’s put the wind in his [D]sails
[D]Catherine is a canvas painter
Paints the sun and sand and sea
Lately she’s been painting a portrait
Sammy is a [G]dad to be
Repeat chorus
[D]January brought the fever
Sam was right there by her side
Doctor told him son I’m sorry
But Catherine needs your [G]prayers tonight
[D]Morning light brought Sam a daughter
Fever took his better half
Sam gave Catherine to the water
As he held their baby [G]to his chest
[Bm]Calm [G]waters
[Bm]Wished him [G]well
His ship came in
But [A]she took the wind from his [D]sails
His [G]ship came in
But [A]she took the wind from his [D]sails
