[F]Here I [Gm7]stand.[C7].. [F]watching [C7]the [F7]tide go [Bb]out.[Bbm]
So [F]all al[Dm7]one and [G7]blue,
just [Gm7]dreaming dreams of [C7]you.
I [F]watched your [Gm7]ship [C7]as [F]it [C7]sailed [F7]out to [Bb]sea,[Bbm]
[F]taking [Dm7]all my [Am]dreams,
[F7]and [Bb]taking [C7-9]all of [F]me.[F7]
[Bb]The sighing of [F]waves,
the [Gm7]wailing [C7-9]of [C7]the [F]wind,
[F7]the [Bb]tears in my eyes [Am]burn..
Plead[G7]ing, "My love, [G7-9]re....[Gm7]turn.[C7]"
[F]Why, oh, [Gm7]why [C7]must [F]I [C7]go [F7]on like [Bb]this?[Bbm]
Shall [F]I just [Dm]be a [Am]lone[F7]ly [Bb6]stranger [C7-5]on the [F]shore?[Gm7] [C7] [F]
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
