If you smile at me, I will understand
 Em
'Cause that is something  everybody everywhere does
 AmEmAmEmAm
In the same language           
 Em
I can see by your coat, my friend,
 Am
You're from the  other side.
 Em
There's just  one thing I've got to know,
 AmEmAm7EmAm
Can you tell me please, who won?            
 Em
 Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
 AmEm
 Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now,
 Am
Haven't got sick once.
 EmAmGAG
Prob'ly keep us both alive.

 Wooden ships on the water, very free,
 EmGAD
 Easy you know the way it's supposed to be.
 EmGAD
 Silver people on the shore line let us be.
 CEmAmEmCEmC
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy.                    
Horror grips us as we watch you die,
All we can do is echo anguished cries,
Stare as all human feelings die,
We are leaving, you don't need us.
Go take a sister, then, by the hand,
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away, where we might laugh again.
We are leaving, you don't need us.

 Em
 And it's a fair wind,
 C
 Blowin' warm out of the south
 EmC
Over my shoulder. 
 EmCEm9
Guess I'll  set a course and go.
