Shanghai Breezes  John Denver

It's [D]funny how you [A]sound as if you're [F#m]right next[G] door,
When you're [D]really half a [Bm]world aw[Em7]ay, [-]  [A7]
I [D]just can't seem to [A]find the words I'm [F#m]looking f[G]or,
To[D] say the things [Bm]I want to s[Em7]ay, [-]  [A7]
I [D]can't remember [A]when I felt so [F#m]close to y[G]ou,
It's[D] almost more than [Bm]I can be[Em7]ar, [-]  [A7]
And[D] though I seem a [A]half a million [F#m]miles from y[G]ou,
You are [D]in my heart and [Bm]living th[Em7]ere,[-]  [A7]


(chorus)
And the[D] moon and the [G]stars are the same [D]ones you[Bm] see,
It's the[Em7] same old sun you see up[A7] in the s[D]ky[-], [A7]
And your [D]voice in my [G]ear is like hea[D]ven to [Bm]me,
Like the [Em7]breezes here in [A7]old Shangha[D]i,


(verse 2)
There are lovers who walk hand in hand in the park,
And lovers who walk alone,
There are lovers who lie unafraid in the dark,
And lovers who long for home,
Oh, I couldn't leave you even if I wanted to,
You're in my dreams and always near,
And especially when I sing the songs I wrote for you,
You are in my heart and living there,


(chorus)
And the[D] moon and the [G]stars are the same [D]ones you[Bm] see,
It's the[Em7] same old sun you see up[A7] in the s[D]ky[-], [A7]
And your [D]voice in my [G]ear is like hea[D]ven to [Bm]me,
Like the [Em7]breezes here in [A7]old Shangha[D]i,


(bridge)
[Em7]Shanghai breezes [F#m]cool and clea[Bm]ring ev[G]ening's sweet ca[A7]res[-]s,[D]
[Em7]Shanghai breezes [F#m]soft and ge[D]ntle r[G]emind me of [Em7]your tende[A7]rness,


(chorus)
And the[D] moon and the [G]stars are the same [D]ones you[Bm] see,
It's the[Em7] same old sun you see up[A7] in the s[D]ky[-], [A7]
And your [D]voice in my [G]ear is like hea[D]ven to [Bm]me,
Like the [Em7]breezes here in [A7]old Shangha[D]i,
And the[D] moon and the [G]stars are the same [D]ones you[Bm] see,
It's the[Em7] same old sun you see up[A7] in the s[D]ky[-], [A7]
And your [D]voice in my [G]ear is like hea[D]ven to [Bm]me,
Like the [Em7]breezes here in [A7]old Shangha[D]i,
