Lost Sailor  Grateful Dead



[F#m]Compass card [Bm]is s[F#m]pinning[Bm], [F#m]helm is swing[Bm]ing [Em]to and fro,
[F#m]Oh w[Bm]here is the [F#m]dog st[Bm]ar,[F#m] oh [Bm]whe[Em]re is the moon?
A AddG D Em A F#m Bm F#m Bm X2
You're a lost sailor, been way too long at sea.
Somedays the gales are howling, sometimes the sea is still as glass.
Oh raise the mainsail, oh lash the mast.
You're a lost sailor, been way too long at sea.
[Bm]Now the [Em]shorelines [Bm]beckon[A], [AaddG]there is a price [F#m]for bein[F]g fre[A]e.
[AddG]There's a seabird [G#m]cryin' and there's a ghost wind blowing,
B Bdropb
And it's calling you to that misting swirling sea.
[G#m]Till the chains of your dreams are broken,
There's no place in this world you can b[A]e. [AddG] [F#m] [F]
You're a lost sailor, been way too long at sea.
Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free.
You pay for being free, I'll tell ya freedom don't come easy.
Free don't always come for free,
Sometimes it's hard to know what to believe in.
Where to go, what to do, where to be, who to be.
That means you're driftin and dreamin, driftin and dreamin,
Cause it's a place you've never seen, driftin and dreamin.
